SPRUCE TIPPED – Imperial India Pale Ale with Fennel
Floats like a butterfly, smells like a tree. If there is such a thing as a graceful Imperial IPA, this is it. The aromatics will hit you before you even pick up the glass. Balanced with malt, and a hair of anise, this evergreen champ backs up that smell with a variety of hop-centric tastes; starting off with citrus and grapefruit notes and ending with the pine and resin one would expect from a “spruce-tipped” ale. Warming as it tip-toes around your tongue and giving your lungs a quick jab of menthol upon the next inhale. Spectacularly light on it’s feet, this 9.5% ABV bruiser will put on a show, but don’t expect to last many rounds.
