COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
• A noble spirit of the sacred humulus lupulus governing all the good of what is bitter
• Beer Type: Imperial IPA

Imperial Good Feller is an Imperial American India Pale Ale brewed exclusively with Amarillo and Simcoe hop varieties. Hop forward flavors of sweet grapefruit and bitter orange rind are backed by a simple malt bill allowing for a vibrant bitterness to project, but not overwhelm the finish.

Comments: A surprising IIPA that focuses more on bitterness than aromas. Growing bitterness by the sip which is something I would generally not mind, but the poorly hidden alcohol kinda clashes with it.
