Notes/Commercial Description:
Our buddies at Four Hands in St. Louis rang us up a couple of months ago with a proposition. They wanted to brew an Imperial IPA and they just happened to have a bunch of Simcoe, Citra, Galaxy and Mosaic hops. We though that sounded like a pretty good idea so they came on up here to Chicago and we did the damn thing. We also added 60 lbs of honey at the end of the boil. The beer that then flowed out of the tanks and into your bottles is a dank symphony of tropical fruit, citrus, mango, pine, fresh cut grass and stone fruit. This was only a single batch and may not make another appearance for a long time. Drink early Drink often.

Don't have detailed notes about this beer as I drank it on 12/02/13, but I recall it being one of my favorite beers from this brewery, and one of the finer DIPAs I've had.

I poured it into a snifter glass, and the tropical fruit aroma that hit me was huge. The taste followed with Tropical fruits and citrus. Loved this beer and I wish they'd brew it again.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Batch #258. Someone told me this was re-brewed... I guess not. Oh well.

Appearance - Bright hazy orange. Nice white head, but it doesn't last. Medium collar. Wispy surface.

Smell - Kinda dank. Grapefruit. Herbal quality. Lots of caramel malt.

Taste - Bright orange hops. Immediately herbal. Honey-like sweetness. Toasted malt. Bitter herbal hop finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium heavy. I guess medium, but heavy for an IPA. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Well I was afraid this would be too old and too Pipeworks, but it's neither. Still very good and doesn't have the issues I've found from other Pipeworks IPAs.
