COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hops climb up twine that’s just loosely tied to the trellis with a half hitch knot— and this Imperial IPA is just loosely tied to tradition. The Mosaic hop imparts surprisingly floral aromas instead of the more expected grapefruit-y notes. On the palate, complex layers of flavors might remind you of guava, mango, stone fruit and lemon, unraveling your idea of what an Imperial IPA should be.

Thanks to VanJammer for this. Pours hazy deep gold with a small white ring. Aroma is mango, tropical and citrus hops. Taste is a great hop bitterness with tropical and citrus hop flavours. Nice sweetness smooths it out somewhat but bitterness and dankness overpowers which makes it great.

On tap. Slightly hazy orange brown with small off white head. Aroma pine and citrus. Medium full body, tangy mouthfeel, a little alcohol. Flavor is moderately bitter citrus hops with a good amount of malt. Pretty good although less complex than some and not too smooth.
