Commercial Description

Emphasizing that complexity of character can arise from simple elements, this ale is made with 3 malts and 1 hop. Its light amber color and slightly spicy malt character are derived from the use of German Dark Munich Malt and Rye Malt respectively. North American 2-row barley combines with the other grains to lay the foundation for the hop onslaught to come. Summit hops are used exclusively in the boil for bitterness, flavor and aroma but it doesn’t end there. Post-fermentation dry hopping allows the 10% ABV monstrosity to gently coax the citrus rind and grapefruit aroma to join the 100 IBUs already present. This beer will greet you with a pungent citrus blast, provide a spicy yet round middle and finish with a brisk, clean bitterness.

    [Best served in a Snifter]


    Poured a murky medium orange with an average sized frothy head that lasted throughout and had excellent lacing.The aroma was of grain malts, a sweet yeast and a strong note of citrus hops. It tasted bitter-sweet from the onset and shifted slightly to a bitter-sour hoppy flavor with a hint of grapefriut at the end. Mouthfeel was light to medium in body and dry in texture with a soft carbonation. Overall a nice and tasty Imperial IPA with the alcohol tinge hidden well in the complexity of flavors.

    Imperial IPA all the way, baby. My favorite style of beer just became more awesome. I love when I can continue to solidify my list of favorites with more proof that they're awesome. Gubna poured a clear pale orange, almost peachy color, with a thin eggshell head breaking into wispy lacing and thin patches. Sticking my nose into it, I came away with pine, a weedy marijuana/hemp, and a zesty bite of bold pink grapefruit. All together it was very bright, but dank, and I had a hard time finding anything sweet in it - hops all the way. Once in my mouth, the pine dominated my palate, closely followed by waves of lemon-rind hops, grass, orange peel, and pink grapefruit. By the end I had a thick, bitter aftertaste of dry pine on my tongue, regardless of the lighter mouthfeel. The carbonation added a nice spicy twang to all of the hops, almost rendering it "springy." I found that it reminded me of SanTan's Count Hopula with all of the pine and grapefruit running amok, which is in no way a bad thing as I find Count Hopula to be one of my favorite beers. If you need a way to wake up in the morning, skip your coffee and dip your tongue in this - note: I'm completely downplaying the punchy bitterness here.

    C. Light Hazy, not 100% clear
    H. Orange-ish
    N. We Could Smell the Hops at the Crack of the Can, Hops Hops and More Hops

    From the crack of the can, yessss the CAN, this Imperial IPA was huge on hops. Coming from a can or a bottle this is a great IIPA, the malt backing is there but not over powering. There is a bit of a funky flavor, onion?, on the back end of this beer but it doesn’t really stick out all that much. This is a great beer for a true Hop Head, like myself. The 10% ABV would sneak up on me, as I would like to drink more than one of these in a sitting. Very good job!
