The Toques of Hazzard Imperial IPA – Parallel 49 Brewing, 9.2% ABV – 341ml., (Vancouver, BC, Canada)
on the front-left label:
“Just a good ol’ beer, made with grains, yeast and hops. Beats all you ever drank, been a double IPA since the day it was born.”
- Style: Imperial IPA
- Taste: Tingly citrus malt banana long bitter hopped
- Do I love this enough to drink it again: no
- Would I recommend this to beer aficionados: yes
Visual: Pours hazy pale orange with a quickly dissipating small head, a super-fine thin layer of retention, extra-micro CO2 fast and slow streams.
Nose: bright fruity orange citrus, hints of banana wheat. (lvl-7)-pungency
Attack: incoming bitter citrus hops, micro tingly-bubbly mouthfeel
Mid-palate: (lvl-5)-sweetness, (MAIN) pine hops, orange, grapefruit, light malt
Finish: banana-wheat, lingering hoppy bitterness,
Summary: Good texture, citrus flavours, pronounced hoppiness, well-hidden alcohol, nice drinkability.
