Fort Collins "The Incredible Hop" (Imperial Belgian Style IPA)
Fort Collins Brewery - Fort Collins, Colorado USA
Imperial Belgian IPA (ABV 9.5%)

[Best served in a Tulip glass]

Rating: 3.3/5.0

Aroma: 6/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 7/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 13/20

The pour was a clear medium tarnished gold with an average sized (1-2 finger) white frothy head that receded down to a thin film and small collar, creating some excellent sticky lacing.

The aroma was of a mild grain malt, grassy hops and a musty Belgian yeast with notes of citrus (orange peel), caramel and a mild peppery spiciness.

The taste was a bold bitter sweet with a hint of caramel up front, and then mellowed slightly into a hoppy citrus taste with a spicy yeast flavor on the back end. The flavor was short lived but very enjoyable, and had a mild spicy hoppy finish.

Mouthfeel was light in body with a dry and somewhat watery texture and a good strong carbonation.

Overall I found this to be a rather light brew for an Imperial IPA. Although the balance of hops and yeast seem to work very well together in this beer, making it quite easy to drink and enjoy…
