Golden amber color. Bright, citrusy aromas and flavors of lemon-orange custard pie, lemon pepper, honeyed nut toast, and arugula with a satiny, racy, frothy, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a peppery, nuanced, medium-long citrus vinaigrette on greens, pepper, mangos and kiwis, and pine finish. A bright and refreshing IIPA with lots of snappy citrus flavors and lingering bitterness.

Imperial IPAs, or double IPAs, are deep gold to deep amber in color and range in alcohol from 7.5-10%. These beers are medium-to-full bodied and are distinguished by prominent American hop aromas, flavors and an abrasive, lingering hop bitterness. These intense hop characteristics should be balanced by a rich malt backbone. Depending on the varieties of hops used, a wide range of flavors including tart citrus peel, pepper and earthy, pine-like flavors and aromas may be encountered. These ales represent a challenge to brewers in terms of balance and drinkability, and have exploded in popularity in recent years with many craft breweries producing a version of the style. Noteworthy examples of this style include: Moylan’s Hop Craic XXXXIPA, Rouge IP2A Imperial India Pale Ale, Stone Ruination IPA and The Alchemist Heady Topper.
