COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This "imperial IPA" has a very strong hop aroma and flavor, however it isn’t as bitter as the Gale Force IPA. There is a strong malt backbone to offer a level of balance but with over two and a half pounds of hops per barrel it resonates hops from start to finish. With so much flavor happening you miss the 8.6% alcohol by volume so be careful when serving or drinking. Hops were added at every stage of the process...it was dry-hopped with chinooks for two weeks. 75 IBU’s. Hops: chinook, centennial, columbus, cascade, bullion.

Scopey (15879) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2016
Bottle by thanks to Dan. It pours hazed orange - amber with a thick yellow - white head. The nose is bitter - sweet, stewed orange, peach, trimmed fruit cocktail and muffin. The taste is crisp, bitter orange, grassy, waxy citrus peel florals and peppery spice with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate, foamy carbonation. A bit soapy, but not bad overall.

bhensonb (15848) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 10, 2013
Bottle from Belmont Station. Pours light, translucent copper with a slight beige head. Aroma of resin. Med + body. Flavor is heavy, juicy hop nearly eclipsing a decent caramel backbone. I’m getting significant hop burn. Flavor is strong mix of citrus/resin and the malt. Hop heads should enjoy the bitter, bitter, hoppy finish. I do.
