An Imperial IPA that was brewed with two-row pale malt and additions of Weyermann's CaraRed and light Munich as well as Dingemanns roasted wheat (to aid in head retention) and aromatic malt. Six different hops were used in the kettle, and the beer was dry hopped with three varieties. This delicious brew has a definite alcohol presence going head-to-head with hop bitterness and flavor. Kraeusen from a Barleywine was used for conditioning. A pleasing dryness follows the alcohol and hop character, and a lingering malt flavor and aroma dominate the finish after the hops subside.

    A dark copper color with a large head. The aroma is malty with some grapefruit and pine showing through. The flavor is rather bitter but has a dark malt presence to balance it out. On the citrus side I get alot of grapefruit and orange, on the malty side I get alot of caramel and some honey. Reminds me of Big Hoppy Monster but maybe a little less extreme. A fine beer.

    Ok, I’ve had this more than once and can’t figure out why I haven’t rated it yet. I was positive I had. Hazy copper with a good head. The aroma is definitely big hops. Citrusy hops and a bit of honey and caramel from the malt. The flavor is a bit reserved for an IIPA, but solid and actually makes it a little more drinkable. Good stuff.

    from notes previously taken Had this on draft during the RB homebrew competion I’d certainly categorize this beer as an IPA, not an Imperial IPA. Nice aroma, good balanced flavor. Very drinkable, but not big and ballsy
