COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Inferos is a rye imperial IPA that is fiery in color, hellacious in hoppiness and bursting with spicy rye goodness. Forged with 25 percent rye grain and loaded with more than four pounds of hops per barrel, Inferos is ultimately a big, lively beer that will keep the soul warm as summer transitions to fall.

The malt bill on Inferos features ESB as a base and Carafa for color, with a devilish dose of rye. “Rye is known for its spicy, rustic grain characteristic, and I think it really adds a distinctive personality to this beer,” says Brewmaster Matt Brynildson.

Inferos is massively dry hopped with Galaxy and other Southern Hemisphere hops to ratchet up the intensity scale. “We’ve long been excited about this idea of brewing a heavily rye-infused beer, and then just hopping the hell out of it,” Matt says. “We finally got our chance.”

One Pint can. Pours a cloudy honey orange with a big frothy off-white head. Moderate lacing. Scents of mango and malt big and round. Taste follows the nose with a sweet start and big balancing tart hops and rye to round out the malt. Very oily in the mouth. Nothing subtle about it but nothing misses a beat. Very nice.

Liked this beer a lot. Not as complex as some other FW imperial IPAs, but the. Earthy, dry bitterness of this one is super appealing. Courtesy of Andy in 2017.

Tap. Lightly hazy orange darker copper brown, creamy eggshell Head. Tropical, melon, sweet rye notes and light creamsicle in aroma. Flavor mirrors, and a touch of earthiness from the rye. Medium slick soft body.

fidelis83 (2535) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - JAN 11, 2018
Cloudy, dirty amber pour with a two finger, fizzy beige head. Aroma is sweet, bright and earthy citrus, earthy/spicy rye, dank hops, tropical fruit and a little sweet cereal and caramel. Flavor is earthy and spicy rye right away, a hint of dusty chocolate, sweet straw, cereal, toast, a little odd sweet carrot and some wildflower floral notes. Medium body, slightly syrupy feel, light to medium, sharp carbonation. Good stuff, too sweet and undercarbonated though.

16 oz can poured, picked up at Hop and Hound. I feel like I've seen this series around for a while, and for some reason, I didn't jump on it until now. Sadly missing the others, but glad I got to try this one. A solid imperial IPA, more malt focused than the average that I get my hands on these days. Nice for a change in pace. Golden amber pour with a patchy foam head and lacing. Rich, bready malts on the aroma. Flavor is a sweet, thicker caramel front, bready malts, and a moderate bitterness. Certainly doesn't scream Galaxy hops by any means, based on my experiences with it, but the hop profile that's here is solid, and balanced nicely with everything else going on. I think this works nicely as a wintertime IPA. A nice warming touch to this one. Flavorful, and very enjoyable. I need to drink more Firestone Walker beers.

Wow. Great malt, sweet body. Hop finish is fruity, mild astringency but most improtantly the balacne is great. Grains are not completly overpowered.
