Founders Backstage Series #13: reDANKulous Imperial Red IPA
NOTE: Beer is close to or past marked date.
Style: Imperial/Double IPA
Format: 355ml Bottle
reDANKulous Imperial Red IPA is a no frills, bold 9.5% ABV India Pale Ale. It pours a pleasing burnt amber with some sweetness due to the Caramalt and roasted barley used in the malt bill. But hops are the true headliner in this elaborate sensory experience. The spicy, piney, tropical complexities of Chinook, Mosaic and Simcoe hops hit you right away with their dank aromaand they stick around. Take a sip to have your palate simultaneously walloped and caressed in all the right places. Combined, the hops take the beer to 90 IBUs. It's not just ridiculous. It's reDANKulous.
