The Hop God takes takes the spirit of the Little General to the celestial beyond. Weighing in at over 100 IBUs, the combination of 40% Chinese and 60% American hops gives our Imperial IPA a serious kick. The American hops result in a bitterness backbone, while the Qingdao Flower Hops add floral aromas.

dreamflower (792) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 15, 2012
Lovely dark amber colour, with a sweet and hoppy citrus aroma. One of my favourite double IPAs, a style I’m just beginning to appreciate.

A great double IPA on tap at Great Leap Beijing. Amber colour with a nice creamy head. Some sweetness here, not crazy bitter, but quite flavourful.

Beershine (5253) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 23, 2011
Cloudy burnt orange with thick lasting head. Aroma of orange blossom, jasmine flower, orange essence, and passionfruit. Rich bitter finish lingers with orange and chocolate-orange with the solid malt character. Brilliant bitter finish. One of their best brews.

Oakes (18883) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 6, 2011
Quite muddy darkish amber - Hop God is always an ugly pint. The aroma has piney hops, light citrus, maybe even tomato. The hops are Chinese, and they have a unique character that hints at American but with Asio-Australio influences. Good balance. There is a slight creaminess to the body with light resiny stickiness and a little bit of alcoholic muscle to balance this out. A go-to beer at Great Leap.
