COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An aggressively hopped and higher gravity version of our Kashmir IPA. Five different hop varieties added at seven different times in the brew kettle, hopback, whirlpool and fermenter add to its complexity. This Imperial IPA also differs from our traditional Kashmir IPA with the addition of over fifty pounds of dry hops, adding a spicy nose. Over two hundred pounds of hops were used in this limited fifty barrel batch. The robust, malty and complex hop flavors and aromas are best enjoyed with an extremely stiff upper lip.

Had the original kashmir and enjoyed it, this is pretty much exactly the same. just doubled. same aroma and flavors. An enjoyable highland beer.

Oh, let the sun beat down upon my face, stars fill my dreams.
I am a traveler in both time and space, to be where I have been.

Is he alright? Are we alright?

Scopey (7455) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2014
Bottle shared at Yespr’s. It pours clear golden-amber with a small white head. The nose is bitter-sweet, oily, doughy, honeycomb, stewed oranges, pepper and sherbet. The taste is rich, bitter-sweet, boozy, peppery, stewed oranges, grapefruit, good bitterness, resin and wood with a dry, warming finish. Medium+body and average carbonation. A bit hot, but tasty enough.

Bulk_Carrier (2277) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - FEB 21, 2014
Rcvd in trade. The appearance has a golden amber colored body that is slightly transparent with a thin half finger white foamy head that dies immediately leaving some speckled spider web lacing clinging pretty hard to the glass. The smell has biscuit/cracker malt-like subtleties coated over top of the hops - basically combined nicely with a tropical yet slightly citrusy sort of hops. The taste is bittersweet as its nicely combined all the way throughout the entire drink. It has a bittersweet aftertaste with a dry sticky finish. On the palate, she sits about a medium, comes across semi-sessionable, and has a carbonation that is good for a DIPA as there is nothing obscure and still gives an adequate sharpness most DIPA’s give, surprisingly enough, ABV isn’t really noticed. Overall, this is a very good DIPA that I would have again.
