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.

Bottle from Proof. Deep golden pour with a bubbly white head. Sweet pale, biscuit and bready malts with piney and grassy hoppiness. Thick, creaminess in the body sweet malty caramel notes in flavor with piney, grassy bitterness. Pretty tasty beer, just nothing that really stands out or over the top.

Brewsgrass 07** Poured a nice amber color with a 2 finger head.Lots of piney hop aroma.Hops and malts flavor with a semi sweetness to it.The hops clinged to the back of my throat at the end with some bitterness to it.

22 oz bottle split between three people. Color was ruddy orange with a good soapy head. The smell was intense hops but not pine or citrus. the taste was very hoppy with some tropical fruit flavors but not quite a West Coast. The only complaint I had with this beer was the astringency on my tongue. it got worse as I got to the bottom of my glass. Still, nice to be able to try this one.

Clear orange/amber color with a rather large white head. Lace sticks to the glass the whole way down. Pineapple and tangerine in the aroma with some faint pine. Tangerine and peach in the flavor is rather nice but there is a rather boozy finish that Iím not very fond of. The heat at the end of this brings the score down a notch or two but I could see this one settling down a tad in a month or two.

Desverger (1282) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 25, 2014
Bottle@Yesprís - golden pour with small off-white head. Aroma and taste is fruity citrus, slightly toasty caramel malts, good sweet/bitter balance, slight spice, and a decent bitter finish.

Light hazy yellow, small white head. Cheesy hops, straw, caramel, citrus, light peach. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Medium sweet and bitter. Feels nice on the palate, good drinkability.

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - FEB 12, 2008
bottle. Aroma is big with notes of caramel, port, dried fruit, and spice. Deep dark orange/caramel color with an average sized off-white head that mostly diminished and left good lace. Flavor is sweet and sticky with flavors of caramel, spice, port, plum, and a slight bitterness on the finish. Palate is full bodied and oily soft. This brew tastes like an aged barley wine so Iím thinking this is an aged bottle. Either way I think itís a good Imp IPA.

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - NOV 12, 2007
22 oz. bottle pours a hazy amber, medium off white head, fair lace. Fresh hoppy aroma of citrus, with some pine and spice, background of toffee and light fruitiness. Medium/full body, medium carbonation, resinous, slightly sticky, but drying out well. Quite malty with lots of sweetness up front, peppery bitterness comes on at the end. All in all, not bad, but really heavy in the malt department.

Juelze (1135) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 25, 2007
Thanks for the trade Ross. Pours a deep amber color with thin white head. Aroma is light grapefruit, malt, some resin and some earthiness. Taste is citrus hops, malt, vegetal and dirt. Alcohol is well hidden but thatís is itís only redeeming quality. It seems like someone dropped some potting soil in a mediocre DIPA.
