Troegs Scratch 20- Apollo Imperial Ale
I went to Troegs yesterday for happy hour and decided to try Scratch #20- Apollo Imperial Ale. Troegs brewed this batch for The Drafting Room as their Anniversary Ale for 2009. It pours a dark amber color and has a sweet floral aroma. The scratch has a malty taste with a crisp hop bite in the after taste. It was noted by my coworker Ben that it is almost creamy in taste. The alcohol content is 7% ABV and the it's bitterness is 115 IBUs, making it a little on the hoppy side, but it was still a very enjoyable beer. I took home a growler of the beer.
