Imperial IPA | 355ml | ABV 9.0%
Back in 2015, Pirate Life beers were West Coast through and through. And while we have evolved, our roots are anchored deep. This recipe harks back to a founding affinity for dank and resinous brews, and just quietly, we’re amped with the results...
Like any decent DIPA, it’s been comprehensively hopped, and includes mash, kettle, whirlpool, and fermenter additions of the following US strains: Mosaic, Idaho-7, Strata and Columbus.
Not a bad line up, though personalities this large require offsetting; hence the malt bill, which is both robust and complementary.
It pours golden and clear, with a lively head of foam. Expect aromas of stone fruit, crushed pine and blackcurrant. The palate shows tropical fruits and herbal sage, with a fine residual sweetness and respectable 80 IBU.
