Mike's Second Coming (500ml Bottle)
Surely the second coming is at hand? - William Butler Yeats. Like the phoenix rising from the ashes, this hop forward beauty pays homage to mike’s Imperial IPA, ahead of its time in 2009. Brewed for GABS 2017.
Imperial IPA, Double IPA or DIPA is a strong, often sweet, intensely hoppy version of the traditional India Pale Ale. Bitterness units range upward of 100 IBUs and alcohol begins at 7.5% but is more commonly in the 8.5-10% range. The flavour profile is intense all-round. Unlike barley wines, the balance is heavily towards the hops, with crystal and other malts providing support.
