Notes / Commercial Description:
A unique marriage of imported British malts and Pacific Northwest hops creates the biggest and boldest of our regular beer offerings.

Please approach our Imperial IPA with respect.

Imperial IPA pours a darker copper color with a big lacing head. Maltier aroma, with hints of hops. Taste was light, and balanced. Some noticeable hop but sweet malts come through. A bit watery and flat. Overall, not bad, but nothing special.
