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.

• Nice pour with 1.5 inches of initial head that fades to a thinner carpet that remains the whole time, clear orange color, minimal lacing
• Can’t get much smell other than strength
• Medium mouthfeel – slightly sticky but not chewy and definitely not thin – whatever the hell that means!
• Kind of a sweet earthy slightly tangy taste with lasting bitterness – a malt forward IPA
• 4.0 rating - overall a pretty decent imperial IPA
