Hoppy, crisp, and citrusy, with an underlying malt character. Made by blending lots of malted barley, wheat, and a judicious quantity of Cascade hops. A "big" beer!

Tap@The Jolly Roger. I ahd two versions of this beer, the regualr one and also a double dry hopped vesrion called "Double Dry Hoppy Imperial IPA". Both version were from the Jolly Roger and bothe were on tap. The regular was typical of an Imperial IPA. Very hoppy, heaps of lychee and pine, pretty sweet, with the hops of course bittering it out a bit. The double hopped vesrion i also scored exactly the same, but this was perhaps maybe a touch dryer and definitely more hoppy and bitter, both versions were tasty.

Draft. Hazy amber color with creamy off-white head that lingered well and left nice lacing. Malty, ciney, citrus aroma with perfume notes as well. Truly a hop nectar, surprisingly mile upfront, sweet, smooth and creamy with a bihg hop rush of pine, citrus and an amazing grapefruit finish. Creamy and full body. Over all a nice ale, though not as satisfying as others of the IIPA style due to milder maltiness.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 9, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2004 I bought this thinking it was an imperial IPA, oops! Yellow and clear color. Aroma is of hops mixed with alcohol. Just noticed this is 7.5%. Hoppiness is good, but there is serious metallic notes creeping up into this, was it stored upside down or something? ReRate GABF 2004 draft: Still that great hoppy flavor and aroma, but no bad metallic taste!

On cask at the brewpub. Well-hopped IPA-style beer. Very good on cask. Also had on tap, which was good but not as good. Good hop flavor, citrusy, with a fair amount of malt to back it up. Overall, on cask this is a beer I really enjoyed but on tap it's nothing spectacular. Still, worth trying.
