An Imperial bitter with exotic traditional floor malts, citrusy, hoppy flavor and stupendous hop aroma. Rogue brewmaster John Maier describes his Brutal IPA as a cross between a Very Extra Special Bitter and an Indian Pale Ale. Hedonistic!

good show! poured nicely with copper color. nice head but settled quickly. nice carbonation with some decent lace. smelled good with a mix of hop and malt. i liked the taste of this beer. i have had bitters from England that i like more but this is good.

not as dry as APA/IPA that i like but it is a great sampler.

suckem up and movem out!
