On-draught @ Other Half. $7 per 12oz pour.

Imperial IPA hopped with Amarillo and Galaxy.

Drinks pretty boozy, with a nice hop profile that favours Galaxy over Amarillo (to it's detriment). Pale malt and sweet caramalt almost balance out the hop bitterness, but the alcohol isn't contained well at all.

Difficult to drink given its high alcohol presence, but I do like the hop profile. Still, not a beer I'd get again over better priced, more widely available, and superior brews like Lagunitas Sucks.

Low B- (3.30) / WORTHY

Pours deep gold orange, one finger white head with great lacing. Aroma is grapefruit and tangerine. Taste is grapefruit, lemon zest,light tangerine, middle kicks to dank tropical fruits and finishes very strong pine. Great DIPA. Complex and very enjoyable. Look forward to more from other half.
