Imperial IPAs balance the power of hops with more hops, and more hops, and more hops and relatively higher amounts of alcohol. Enjoy in moderation or feel the bite of the nettle!

UPDATED: JAN 16, 2013 Straight piney hops, this one had some bite. Somewhat one-dimensional, but refreshing to some extent. Definitely focuses on the bite all the way through. Good beer for when I am in that mood. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at AA Cafe. Pours clear golden orange with a nice head and subsequent lace. Nice inviting spicy and citrus aroma with a touch of sweetness. Nettles! this is a beer with a unique character, but is balanced well with a residual sweetness and hop character. Grassy, peppery and herbal. Something different. Nettle just a bit much however.

On tap at Jolly Pumpkin in Ann Arbor, MI. Pours a clear, orange-amber colored body with a finger-width, dense and creamy, soft white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a real nice lacing throughout. Aroma is piney grapefruits with a light sweetness and a solid, sturdy caramel backing. Flavor is similar and solid. Lots of grapefruits and some oranges with a moderate pine as well as some florals and a light resin. Really nice, sturdy, medium sweet caramel backing that balances and is distinct, but not overly sweet or distracting from the hops. Hops grow a tad bit juicier towards the end as this finishes somewhat sweet, but very well balanced and pleasantly dry with just a few resins. Lengthy aftertaste following a smooth, medium body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a very solid DIPA. Well balanced with a great caramel backing and lots of grapefruits hops. Very enjoyable.

Enjoyed on tap at the Ann Arbor pub, Project Greenleaf. On balance as good in bitterness as a regular IPA. Gets there in a new direction. Orange colour and lacey. Orange flavour, really bitter, this is lots of nettle. Not great drinkability but interesting to try.
