COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A high gravity India Pale Ale brewed with 100% barley, six varieties of hops, water and yeast. Extra barley malt nicely balances the huge volume of hops in this brew. Produced as part of the John Mitchell Series. Turn around bright eyes! 17 Plato.

Aroma is a rich hop profile with citrus, lemon grass and a nice earthiness. Taste is a light sweet crisp maltiness with a fairly dominant hop body which comprises of grapefruit and tanin which leaves light bitterness burn on finish. Pretty well balanced overall. Appearance is a clear gold with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.

Tasted at Willow Park Beer Bash 2014. Unfortunately, there was no time for detailed notes - and I only made it through half my list even so!

Un bon impériale très malté. Pas d’agrumes juste de houblon dans l’arôme et le goût. Un peu sombre pour le se est pas aussi complexe pour que ça soit une très bonne impériale mais un bon boisson quand même!

Mediocre IPA. One of the mildest double IPAs I’ve had. Musty aroma, and slick mouthfeel.

kidobutai (419) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - AUG 7, 2014
poured from a bottle. Really enjoyed the aroma, taste wasn’t bad but not as good as the aroma. Malt finish, creamy, I liked it more the more I consumed.

Bottle. Lighter amber colour with a plenty of head. Lots of hops, some fruit flavours. Decent balance and flavour, but a pretty average DIPA.
