Hopzale (Can/Lata)—tasting notes
Laugar Hopzale is the older sister in the Patxi Hopman series. Hopzale is an Imperial IPA with a large amount of hops that scores up to 100 IBU's. With a clear golden orange color and a medium-sized off-white head. Aroma has hints of malts and is very hoppy with fruity touches. Flavour is sweet and very hoppy, slightly fruity and slightly bitter. A very nice and hoppy Imperial IPA. Now also in can!
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.
