Blending In—tasting notes
Blending In is an Imperial IPA by Jakobsland Brewers, brewed with Citra and Ekuanot hops. It has a mix of tropical and resinous notes both in nose and in palate, with hints of lime, watermelon and papaya. Taste is moderately sweet and not very bitter, with some spicy notes and a creamy mouthfeel.
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.
