Manayunk Totally Tubular... Dude

Formerly brewed at Manayunk Brewing Company
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania USA
9.5% Imperial IPA | 3 Ratings | 100 IBU |
In response to internet chatter that our staple IPA, California Dreamin’ is not a true California IPA, we present this hoppy elixir. Crafted with almost a ton of imported malts and 100 Lbs. of Washington hops, it may be daunting to some, but we should make the biggest Left-Coast hophead put down the surfboard and catch this tube. Deep copper in color, a luscious malt background underlies its’ lacy head as it presents a complex citrus hop aroma and flavor well into the finish. A true hopheads’ dream. Surf’s up......Dude. Initially 10.0% ABV, 100 IBUs
