An AHA National Gold medal award winning recipe from the Ann Arbor Brewer Guild’s Bob Barrett. This Imperial Pale Ale is a single hop ale all the way. Amarillo hops are only grown on a select few farms in Washington and Oregon. The Vigil Gamache Farms family personally bred this hop (likely from a cross between Cascade and Centennial) for strong aromatics and high bitterness. Premium American 2-row Pilsner malt provides the base for this beer, with a touch of Vienna, Munich and Biscuit malt pump up the malt flavor to allow the huge hopping levels to maintain their balance.
