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!

metalspice (113) - Jevnaker, NORWAY - JUL 1, 2014
Kjøpt på vinmonopolet. Drukket til grillmat, bra kombinasjon. Mørkt skum. Mye smak. Klart , men mykt alkoholpreg.

jookos (2536) - FINLAND - JUN 28, 2014
Bottle. Copper, with sediment in the bottle. Some yeasty esters, deep caramel (bit barley winey), heavy pines, fruityness on nose. Medium / full bodied, very resinous piney with pretty heavy caramels. But nicely balanced, pretty easy to drink even though the hefty abv. But still, I was expecting a bit more. Super good, but a bit too heavy caramelly for me.
