COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hold on to your seat. Our Imperial Pale Ale was one of the first Big Beer Styles to be brewed in the Northeast. It id the Big Brother to our popular Two Bros. Pale. 10-11 alcohol, you would never know it. We have brewed this beer in a manner to "hide" the alcohol flavor, but will give you a huge cascade flavor yet mild malt body without that high alcohol beer flavor. Served in its own special glass accompanied with green apple and chocolate. Available year round.

Bottle. Hazy orange amber body with a whit head. Huge paper, grain, and very domineering bittering hop character. Light citrus and more grain etoh to finish.

Draft. I had this in the restaurant and must say I was utterly shocked. It was served warm (arguably too warm) and had an extremely strong alcoholic quality. As far as beer goes it was unpleasant; as far as drinking alcohol it was harsh and would get the job done (although I can think of better ways to get wasted). Could use more sweet maltiness to balance some of the harsher alcohol.

Numenor (871) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - DEC 26, 2006
Tap at MacGregorís - Henrietta, NY Orange-ruby body with a thin white head. Taste is malt dominated with chocolate and cherry accents. Sweet ending with a late hit of hops. Earthy aroma.

zach8270 (3431) - Henrietta, New York, USA - NOV 13, 2006
(draft @ MacGregorís - Henrietta, NY) Rich and dark copper color with a very thin tan head. Aroma is kind of light, but very floral with some sweet malts and a touch of caramel. Flavor is loaded with bitter and floral hops, followed up by some smooth and sweet malts and a slightly bitter and very warming finish. Did not know that the alcohol was that high in this one.

This is not lawnmower beer, that is to say itís not an all day beer. Very bitter but a wonderful finish. Appearance is slightly cloudy but still clear. Very thick head with stick to the glass properties. While its only seasonal and should be taken in small quantities, this is the best drunk for the bucks beer Iíve had in quite some time. I was given a free keg of this by a friend and he told me it was $ 180.00 for a keg. I must send him a thank you card.
