An Imperial/Double IPA brewed by
Speakeasy Ales and Lagers
San Francisco, California USA
Pours a light orange or slightly cloudy yellow. It smells of hops and more hops. I also pulled some light citrus fruit aromas; very nice. It tastes hoppy and pine laden. I was surprised though that I picked up that tangy, citrus like aroma in the flavor as well. Very interesting. I liked. A very good IPA. It was balanced for an over-the-top hop bomb, if you can believe that. Just below the tippy-top tier in my opinion but in the contest.
