Hop on board and experience three "All American" hop varieties; Warrior, Tomahawk and Simcoe. which the brewers have worked into this Imperial India Pale Ale. The brewers focused in on the key attributes of each hop for the best possible interplay of aromatics and bitterness with the malt extraction. The result is a floral,citrus nose, bold bitterness and a hint of sweetness. Once again the Steam Team is on time and on track.

Draft at the brewery. Pours clear bright copper with a thick, creamy off white head and lots of lacing. Tastes like grapefruit, hop resin, caramel malt, pine, and creamy orange. Medium body and low carbonation. Smells like pine hops, grapefruit, resin, and faint caramel malt and orange.

Slipstream (2281) - USA - MAY 24, 2015
This was on draft at the brewpub. Resiny hops dominate this brew, with solid results. It isn’t mind-blowing, but it is a good big IPA.

This Imperial IPA pours a hazy, amber body with over half an inch of light-tan head that settles to a ring, leaving a wide ring of doily-like lacing on the glass. The aromatic nose offers sweet and caramely malt, candied orange, and citrusy and lightly piney hops. On the palate, it’s nicely balanced between malt and hops, the malts tasting caramely, toffee-like, and fruity with medium-plus sweetness, the hops giving citrusy and piney flavors with medium bitterness. It’s a full-bodied, medium carbonation beer that’s very smooth and goes down way too easy for an 8+% ABV beer. Very enjoyable.

Amber with a creamy, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, pine, citrus, toast, and toffee malts. Taste of pine, citrus, toffee, spruce, with caramel malts, a grapefruit and alcohol finish.

Westchesterco (1550) - mclean, Virginia, USA - JUL 20, 2013
At the brewpub on tap it is a clear golden color with a minimal head. The aroma is citrus and that is what cones through with the taste a slight bitter ending that lingers on the palate.

Iphonephan (5004) - McLean, Virginia, USA - JUL 20, 2013
On draft at the brewpub in Durango CO. Pours a clear copper with an off white head. Fruity hop nose. Flavors of citrus and pine with a smooth caramel malt backbone. Crisp clean bitter finish.

ads135 (3702) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUL 20, 2013
This is a pretty decent DIPA. Amber colored, thick white head, and a medium body. A little slick on the tongue, lots of citrus, esp. grapefruit, and some grass. Big malty backbone.

puzzl (3257) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 26, 2012
Tap at the brewpub. Well, my bros back home are all drinking Hill Farmstead, and I’m drinking this, so it’s an inevitable disappointment, but really its not too bad. Kind of cheesy, but the hops are fresh. Medium bodied with a somewhat slimy finish.

9.2% ’Imperial IPA’. Hazy amber beer. Spicy hop aroma. Semi soft and semi dry palate. Rich mouth watering hops that are never overly bitter. Grapefruit, pineapple, lesser notes of peach and orange. Distinct licorice spice towards the end. Very drinkable and tasty.
