Notes/Commercial Description:
This Imperial India Pale Ale rocks…hardcore! But don’t take our word for it...this little bottle has a grandiloquent story to tell.

2,204 malted Maris Otter grains gave all they had to offer the world to provide the robustly delicate toffee malt canvas for the ensuing epic. 4 Hop Cones willingly sacrificed themselves to ensure your mouth feels punished and puckering for more. 9,900,000,000 yeast cells frantically fermented their little hearts out as the sugars became alcohol in the depths of our fermentation tanks.

2 humans and 1 canine companion were relatively happy with the results.

Pourd at a perfect temperature with a thick cream colored long-lasting head lots of Lace and a clear honey amber color. Aroma is malt Caramel, little more resin then grapefruit and a bit of weed. Flavor is extremely bittersweet with enough carbonic tang to balance. Great body. Boozy in the finish. Killer sipping beer

Just like the Scottish - fucking hardcore!

This is one of my regular purchases at my local shop. It delivers boldly on flavours, with a sharp bitter note at the end.
