Notes/Commercial Description:
Our Imperial IPA hopped with so many, really just so many, pounds of Citra hops is one of our favorites to brew, mostly because it's one of our favorites to drink. Cheers! Drink early and often.

Rust orange in appearance and absolutely stunningly bright orange in direct sunlight, nothing more inviting in an IPA for me.

An abundance of citrus punishes the nostrils at first whiff, though not entirely brewed with Citra hops, they definitely highlight this hop spectacularly.

My oh my! Instantly floored by this delightful IPA. Citrus, hops, bitter, perfectly balanced. The high ABV ain't bad either!

Mouthfeel is bitter with hop deliciousness and well carbonated all balanced perfectly.

Overall, this is absolutely everything I look for in an IPA, hands down the best Illinois born IIPA!
