Nothing is like celebrating your own milestones. This is a celebration of our 500th batch of ale. It was brewed with joy and splendor; the brewer wore a suit, and a TV station filmed the event. As a base for this ale, we have elected to play with numbers: 5 hops, 100 IBUs, 10% alcohol by volume. Indeed it is an Imperial India Pale Ale. Big and bold. Great for a celebration!

500 ml bottle shared with calm_dreamer. Bottle fro trade with gunnar(thanks a lot man). Dark orange color with a thin beige head. Aromas of hops and maybe some tangerines and lemon. Bitter and sweet taste at the same time. Fruits, sweet ones especially with some toffee and some yeast notes. Hippy aftertaste. Medium body with low carbonation.
