COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"Some people paint, some sing, others write...I brew." --Daniel Carey A few times a year we will cut Dan loose to brew whatever he chooses, uncensored, uncut, unplugged. The bottle you hold is handcrafted for the adventurous soul. We brewed this one small batch, and make no promises to ever brew this style again. Warning: Caution. Our Imperial IPA will smack you In-Your-Face. This is an aggressively hoppy IPA. An explosion of hops including East Kent Golding, Cascade, Tomahawk, Warrior and Chinook dominate this pale summer brew. IBUs delivered like you’ve never enjoyed before. Our imperial IPA is alive with a bottle fermentation that catapults hop aromas to the front with bitter notes that will dance till dawn on your palate. Serve immediately at 45 degrees F. Thanks for Supporting the Arts. --Daniel & Deborah Carey

Ungstrup (29477) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 4, 2005
An orange beer wih no head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of hops. The flavor is sweet hoppy combined with a slight note of alcohol - leaving a slight burn, as well as notes of citrus, leading to a dry hoppy end.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 28, 2007
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Courtesy of Thomas_E. Hazy, amber golden with an off-white head. Hoppy, lightly citrusy aroma. Medium body, some light caramel accents, some fruit and weak, woody notes. The finish is solidly bitter. Somehow this fails to really deliver. 270607

bu11zeye (11971) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - OCT 24, 2005

argo0 (11568) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 18, 2005
(12oz bottle) Clear apple juice body topped by medium off-white head. Aroma is medium sweet, pineapple, grapefruit, herbal, caramel. Taste is medium sweet, pine/pineapple, grapefruit, herbal, floral, caramel. Medium body with a light resin coating for the tongue. Remarkably drinkable, gulpable even -- makes me very curious as to what the ABV is. Malt backbone prevents things from getting too unbalanced despite the omnipresence of hops.

Medium body with slick texture and flat carbonation. Medium smooth bittersweet hoppy flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This is was a good beer.
