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!

One of my favorites! Juicy tropical friuts and some caramely notes define this. A few floaters from the sediments, but it’s all good.

I was disappointed with this beer. It had a good taste, but it’s not an IPA for me. It pours a dark somewhat cloudy amber. I don’t know if this means a whole lot, but the head didn’t leave a lot of lacing either. It had a dense, sweet malt liquor smell to it. When I drank it I got a very heavy taste that was sticky in my mouth. The taste reminded me of caramelized onions. It wasn’t a hoppy IPA. It tasted more like bitter malt liquor. Sorry, but I’m not impressed with this IPA.
