COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hops climb up twine thats just loosely tied to the trellis with a half hitch knot and this Imperial IPA is just loosely tied to tradition. The Mosaic hop imparts surprisingly floral aromas instead of the more expected grapefruit-y notes. On the palate, complex layers of flavors might remind you of guava, mango, stone fruit and lemon, unraveling your idea of what an Imperial IPA should be.

beer-yum (1514) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 16, 2016
Huge citrus aroma in a golden pour. Laid back balance with a big malty body perfectly matched by what bitterness there is. A spectacular brew given the strength (of which there is no hint at all).

Crux Half hitch 10% bottle shared by Mike

A deep brassy orange gold. A big bold juicy passionfruit and prickly pear aroma. Medium bodied with a soft mouthfeel and a lush fruity hop flavor that perfectly matches the aroma. This was really nice

Bottlel from Tanakaya. Pours a clear light gold with a finger of head. Big mosaic forward aromas with citrus and light pineapple dominating. Boozy for the abv but light and not overly malty. Honey on the finish with lots of pithy bitterness on the finish. Not bad.
