Imperial IPA

This big, hoppy and malty Imperial IPA was brewed on Leap Day, 2012,  from Montana-grown 2-row Metcalfe malted barley and British specialty malts.  It is hopped with 48 lbs of Magnum and Cascade hops (that’s 6 lbs per barrel!).  While this beer has a higher bitterness rating than any we have made before, it still comes across malty due to the large malt bill that was necessary in order to achieve a 10.2% ABV beer.  This beer’s maltiness, hop bitterness, and floral hop character all blend together to make a very rich, luscious presentation.  Take a Leap and Enjoy!
