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.

Cloudy orange - amber beer. Rich silky palate. A little pepper rides over a marmaladey orange and grapefruit hop. The hops are deep but also mellow and not over bitter. Long smooth hop finish with a lingering but pleasant bitterness.
