mendocino imperial ipa is a great beer or should i say ale its a full bodied ipa with great flavor. mendocino imperial ipa is brewed with a lot of premium varieties of hops such as Amarillo, Cascade which are some of my favorite hops.. it also has caramel and 2-row pale malts.. i really love this beer for its strong hop aroma and the taste is a strong bitter citrus flavor
