American Double / Imperial IPA |  9.10% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
ISG is the granddaddy of our Rye Guy IPA. More grain! More hops! The result is an incredibly flavourful, yet balanced Imperial IPA. There is a big malt flavour up front which presents in the form of rich caramel and serves to balance the high bitterness of a beer weighing in at 90 IBUs. The result is a nice, lingering, spicy taste on the tongue. And at 9.1% ABV, this is definitely going to make you super!

Growler delivered by Brew Donkey. From notes.

A - Poured hazy dark golden with one finger of off white head. Mild carbonation, spotty lace, and a film of retention.

S - Citrus, mild malt, mild rye.

T - Citrus and stronger rye than the aroma.

M - Good bitterness with obvious rye in the finish. Mild carbonation and medium to full body.

O/D - This was OK. Definitely an amped up version of Rye Guy, but the rye was much stronger and didn't really allow the hops to shine as well as they could have. Decent enough, just not my cuppa. Definitely not a bad choice, all things considered.

Am enjoying this very solid DIPA that hides its 9.1% ABV scarily well thanks to mtomilins.

Pours a beautiful and clear amber that almost glows, with an impressive off-white head that results in much lacing. Aroma is malt -forward, caramel with a barrel background and highlighted by tropical fruit tones. The flavour has more hop presence with pine and citrus tones plus a delightful bitterness to the finish, however definitely malt-forward in the body. The barrel elements are not overwhelming and give it some smoky depth.

Awesome growler design and a well brewed beer from a brewery I'm ashamed never to have visited. Must get back to Ottawa!

Pours a deep red. No head at all, just a few precious bubbles floating to the top, forming a super thin film.

All pine on the nose with just the faintest caramel.

Again, pine is the star of the show. However, rye really makes its presence known here, much more than in their Rye Guy IPA. It imparts a really interesting spicy character to it like, well, Rye. The overall affect is almost a spruce beer kind of deal. Big evergreen hop taste with an earthy spice to it. Alcohol is really well integrated.

Not really a hop bomb actually, don't expect a massive bitterness. Malt is actually the big show here I think, at odds with their hop forward IPA.
