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.

Pours slightly hazy, golden yellow with a definite, but light orange hue. A thick head of off-white foam.

Tropical and citrus fruits, mango, melon, and resinous.

Bright and delicious tropical notes, citrus, mango, and honey in perfect balance.

Mouthfeel is medium-bodied, sticky, and resinous.

Overall, one of the smoothest IIPAs I've had to date.
