Fort Collins Incredible Hop Imperial India Pale Ale
Fort Collins Incredible Hop Imperial India Pale Ale from the brewery and brought it home to share with friends. The beer pours an amber color with a frothy off-white colored head that leaves a nice lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of lemon, tangerine, orange, pine, and spruce. The taste is smooth and creamy with a huge caramel base. The finish actually makes the beer with a spicy pine and spruce bite that brings out the citrus flavors of tangerine, orange, and grapefruit. The alcohol content is 10.8% ABV. I’d say this beer is a little too malty and sweet, but at least the finish is somewhat redeeming and gives it some bitterness.
