Availability: Rotating

Notes/Commercial Description:
A unique marriage of imported British malts and Pacific Northwest hops creates the biggest and boldest of our regular beer offerings. Our Imperial India Pale Ale is a formidable, west-coast style India Pale Ale, loaded with the pine and citrus flavors and aromas of multiple hops from that region, all on top of a rich and warming malt base. Please approach our Imperial IPA with respect.

Visiting Madison from NW Ohio (where I can get all those delicious Michigan IPAs). Served in an imperial pint glass. This brew is only available at one of the Great Dane locations and you need to go THERE. (See previous review for name.) Just a world-class DIPA. If you like strong, tasty, bitter, and complex ones that will take you on a ride, this is one of 'em. Had a 3F Dreadnaught the next evening for comparison (but from a bomber, yes I know) and the Great Dane was better. Don't miss it!
