This beer is an expression of our love for hops and the Imperial IPA style. It will evolve round-to-round based on seasonal availability and the brewer’s whim. It will always be bold, always courageous. I’d get some ice on that jaw if I were you.

Round 1 tasting notes:
Intense bursting grassy hop freshness hits the nose, hop resin and chewy malt assault the palate and a firm bitterness punctuates the finish; echoes of mango, grapefruit and orange.

On tap at Scratch Bar December 2013. The biggest of the Green Beacon beers certainly packs a punch. Loads of hops on the aroma and the beer fills the mouth with joy.

A bit heavy handed this one. Sticky sweet ,a bit cloying with firm bitterness. Drinkable, but would not be drinking more than a middy.
