COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hops climb up twine that’s 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.

piscator34 (2508) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 11, 2017
Draft at the brewpub. Gold in colour with moderate carbonation. Aromas are of melon, guava, clean pale malt and booze. Quite the Mosaic and pale malt assault on the palate with loads of citric, tropical, and grass flavors along with some sticky pale malt for balance. Could be leaner, but still pretty tasty.
