La Tremenda tasting notes
La Tremenda is a classic by La Pirata that is brewed again due to popular pressure. It is an Imperial IPA brewed with Summit, Simcoe and Amarillo hops, that gives it a very hoppy character. It has tropical fruits aromas, with notes of grapefruit, pineapple and peach. Taste is sweet with malty notes and very bitter, with pine and resin hints and a soft and 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.
