Comet On Fire tasting notes
Comet On Fire is an Imperial IPA by Galway Bay, brewed with Calipso, Comet, Idaho7 and Summit hops. It has a tropical nose, with orange and grapefruit, but also with some caramel and toffee hints. Taste is hoppy, with orange hints in the background, and tropical mango and grapefruit in the front.
Imperial IPA or Double IPA is a strongly hopped strong pale ale. Its appearance is golden to light orange-copper, with almost no hazyness. Aromas are predominantly hoppy, with notes of American hops—pine, citrus, tropical fruits, etc.—, and additional dry hopping may give some herbal character. Flavour is highly bitter, very hoppy, with floral hints from the American hop varieties. Finish is dry to medium-dry and medium to high carbonation. It's bitter and hoppier than a English IPA or an American IPA, and less malty and less alcoholic than an American Barleywine.
