Poster Child Imperial IPA

I have to say this one is really really good.  Almost in my mind the poster child for Imperial IPA’s.  I know something else will come along and change my mind but for now let me think that i’ve found what I’m looking for.

Everything is this beer is big.  The ABV is sitting right about 8.7% which you can feel the burn down the back of your throat.  The nose is real nice and hoppy.  Tons of grapefruit and pine and a nice backing of caramel from the malt.  The taste really follows what you smell.  Coming at you with the grapefruit and pine caramel and of course the alcohol.  Overall very good, very strong, very smooth.  Basically every good variation of very you can think of that involves beer.

And to all you Dad’s Happy Fathers Day.

Cheers.
