With a deceptively low bitterness measurement of just 40 IBU and a whopping 10.2% ABV, this Belgian-style Imperial IPA sports huge aromatic notes of orange, coconut and tropical fruits (thanks to the whirlpool blast of over 200 pounds of Hopsteiner OCC Experimental and Simcoe Hops!). It’s vinous, leggy and has a nice, fluffy white head. The dry, malty backbone is courtesy of a 100% North American pale malt grain bill fermented with a Belgian wheat beer yeast. Esters of green apple linger on your palate. The bitterness doesn’t hang out too long, so it makes for a great pairing with delicate foods as well as spicy dishes.
This beer was brewed to be consumed immediately, so please do not age it at all! Enjoy it fresh, enjoy it now!
