COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Full Disclosure: This beer came to fruition because we saw a gap in our portfolio and we wanted to increase our market share. Sometimes the truth hurts. But most often, it’s damn refreshing. The Truth Imperial IPA--the latest addition to our year-round portfolio-is a hop bomb of some of the most distinct Pacific Northwest hops available today. Its sharp hop bitterness begins with huge pine notes on the nose, which evolve into bright citrus (think grapefruit) and subtle stone fruit flavors.

Calisky (2383) - ALSACE, FRANCE - MAY 22, 2016
Couleur légèrement cuivré, légère mousse. Nez fruité confit, coing, raisin houblonné résineux. Gout fruité (ananas, raisin), confit, houblonné résineux avec fin de bouche sur le pin. Bon corps. Bonne amertume longue sur le fruité pin. Assez classique mais pas mal!

procraste (456) - FRANCE - MAY 22, 2016
Rafraîchissante et houblonnée à souhait mais peut être un peu courte .. Pas mal résineuse aussi mais un peu flotteuse .... Mais en fait ses défauts la rendre accessible et pas chiante ... solide en un sens.
