Botanical Imperial IPA by New Belgium Brewing Company in Colorado, United States

About Botanical Imperial IPA by New Belgium Brewing Company

From the garden to your glass, Botanical Imperial IPA bounds with springtime flavor. This season we looked to the fresh aroma of our awakening landscape to find inspiration for our next Hop Kitchen release. This big imperial IPA packs an equally potent hop punch courtesy of Cascade, Sterling and Willamette varieties. Then we intensified the citrusy, herbal and spicy hop flavors with a blast of essential oils from backyard botanicals basil, sage and juniper to create the freshest IPA around. A touch of dark caramel malt adds a nice cushiony bed to the sip before the beer transitions into a warming, dry finish. Taste the bounty of Botanical Imperial IPA.

Tasting Notes:

Gorgeous golden orange sunset with just a touch of haze.
Piney, spicy, herbal and citrusy. Super complex bowl of aromas.
Bittersweet beginning with a medium lingering bitterness.
Warming and dry from beginning to end.
Medium-full body.
