COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Big flavor, intense pine and citrus aroma. We keep the malt profile clean in this Imperial IPA to let the love lights shine on the fine Northwest hops.

Bottle at Jester King Zwanze Day. Orange pour with a white head. The aroma and flavor are classic West Coast hops. I get some big orange and grapefruit notes. The flavor also has a bit of biscuit malt to keep the bitterness in check. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Nice beer.
