whole-cone hop brewing. The result is this: a 100 IBU, whole-cone hurricane of flavor. Simply put- Hoptimum: the biggest whole-cone IPA we have ever produced. Aggressively hopped, dry-hopped and torpedoed with our exclusive new hop varieties for ultra-intense flavors and aromas. 

Hops, hops and more hops are the stars of this big, whole-cone Imperial IPA. Resinous ‘new-school’ and exclusive hop varieties carry the bold and aromatic nose. The flavor follows the aroma with layers of aggressive hoppiness, featuring notes of grapefruit rind, rose, lilac, cedar and tropical fruit – all culminating in a dry and lasting finish.

One of my favorite Imperial IPA's

Review

Serving Type
Bottle
Look
A deep straw with some amber hues with little head and almost no lacing.
Smell
Lots of grassy and herbal hops on the nose with this guy.
Taste
Hop bitterness that rounds to a nice crisp bite. It's a boozy beer, but the flavor and taste is exactly what hop heads look for.
Feel
The bitterness is rounded and balanced.
Drinkability
Its a very hoppy beer, but its a great beer to enjoy while relaxing after work or with a meal or rounding out your night as a nightcap. Enjoy Hoptimum as soon as you get it and at a cold temperature.
