The first in our series of experimental Imperial IPAs – Release #1 is brewed exclusively with Cascade hops (from Segal Ranch) and Weyermann Vienna Malt. Our friend, Jeff O’Neil (the artist formerly known as the head brewer at Ithaca Beer Company… now redesigning the Peekskill Brewery) lent us a hand on this, our very first and long brew day on our 15bbl brewhouse. 8% abv.

From notes. Enjoyed at the hotel for a tasting after Great Taste on August 08. HF growler thanks to Al. The pour is a foggy straw yellow color with a medium sized white head and some spectacular lace. The aroma is really good. There are some awesome dank tropical fruits, a good pine resin, and I’m picking up mango specifically. The flavors are a little lighter. It’s really dank still, and the tropical fruits fade off a tough in lieu of the resin bitterness. The mouth feel is creamy, but light and the carbonation is a little over done in my opinion, but the beer balances well, and I didn’t like this one as much as S&S #5. Oh well.

FINALLY, got the missing society and solitude beer. On tap at Armsbby Abbey. Strong hoppy aroma with uncharacteristically strong sweetness in this one. The booze is also semi-evident. Was it an old keg? I hope not. Either way, delicious. Strong pine flavors, stron hoppy piney aroma, finish is sweet and thick. Thick mouthfeel.

On tap at Armsby Abbey in Worcester. Served in a snifter. A deep golden brew with plenty of classic grapefruit citrus notes. Dances on the palate. Very nice!

On tap at Prohibition Pig. Pours pale Amber with a thin white head that lingers. Copious lacing. Nose is malt and tropical fruit, citrus. Taste is a blast of hop bitterness, riding a tsunami of malty richness. Very nice! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at Blackback pub with Linh and Paul. Pours a bright hazy orange body with thin white lacing. Aroma is fruity and floral with clean wheat character in the back. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with notes of fruity, floral, slightly dry, soft and grainy, floral hop profile with some banana cream pie.
