The winter version of their Imperial Pale is everything the C-Note is plus a smattering of darker malts. It produces a dark amber / brown brew with a thin head but some great lacing. The nose is floral with the promise of some extrodanary hop flavors to come. The malt comes though early from some dark crystal but the flavor quickly moves to the hops. The hops come though with a mélange of floral, citrus, pine and a grassy bitter finish. As it states on the bottle “In hops we trust”…… so true.
