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.

thornecb (5533) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - APR 11, 2016
Pours clear gold into a tulip. Bright white head with good retention recedes leaving soapy spiders. Lemon joy and mild scallion aromas. Thick with mango and papaya tort upfront turning to sweet resin, and unfortunate lemon cleanser that dominates the lasting finish as it warms

Lightly hazy gold beer, tidy pale cream colour head. Palate is light and semi dry with good fine carbonation. Smooth pale malts, light creamy sweetness. Hops are pithy and mildly spicy. Modest tropical fruits underneath light pine. Semi dry finish. Hop spicy linger. This bottle is at least 6 months old so it has held up well.
