Notes/Commercial Description:
Harpoon Leviathan Imperial IPA will challenge your senses and your palate. As the vibrant aroma rushes out of your glass you will notice the blend of piney and tropical fruit notes. At first sip, this big beer starts with a powerful hop bitterness up front and an aggressive hop flavor and character throughout.

Leviathan Imperial IPA is brewed with tons of pale malt and just enough caramel malt to provide a sweet malt body to balance the hop intensity. We used copious amounts of a variety of hops including Chinook, Centennial, Simcoe, and Amarillo at various points during the boil to create a complex hop flavor and clean lingering bitter finish. We then fermented the beer with Harpoon’s own versatile proprietary yeast. Finally, we dry hopped at a rate of over 1 lb a barrel to produce this beer’s massive aroma.

Had on tap at the Vermont brewery. A caramel brown colour, quite clear with a slight lacing, aroma has caramel malts, grapefruit and pungent fruity citrus. Taste has grapefruit and florals, quite jammy, leading to a more spicy finish. Mouthfeel is full, moderate carbonation, more alcohol on the finish, noticeable quite caramelly. A quite sweet, though flavourful IPA, hoppy oils and a bracing hop bitterness. Decent and quite hoppy and satisfying but not an inspiring DIPA, but one I would have again.
