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.

Poured into a Funky Buddha Brewery snifter. Sticker on the bottle says 09/05/14.

A- Pours a reddish amber color with a 1/4 inch off-white head that retains decently before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a half sheet of sheer surface foam. Somewhat resilient lacing leaves small clots behind.

S- Wonderful citrus hop aroma with a nice sweet malt backing.

T- Hop flavor comes in and is followed by a moderate bitterness plus that sweet malt really rounds everything out so well. Kind of reminds me of a hoppy red ale. Very smooth for the ABV as I would never guess this is 9.5%

M- Quite oily and slightly sharp from the hops. Medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the fuller side.

O- What I admire about Pipeworks' IPAs is that they're somehow able to pack a whole lot of hop flavor into the beer without there being an abundant amount of bitterness. Outstanding.

Batch 503/504 (less than a month from the brew date)

So far from a world-class, top 250 beer it makes me sad. Malt bomb, none of that Citra deliciousness you want.
