Description: P49’s latest summer seasonal is a new take on the Imperial IPA. Combining Pilsner malt with flaked corn, this Imperial IPA is then hopped with a significant dose of Chinook, Ahtanium, and Citra hops to achieve a strong but slightly sweet brew packed with citrus and tropical fruit flavors.
Tasting Notes: This was definitely a consistent P49 offering! As always, the combination was quite interesting and the end result quite flavorful. The infusion of corn added a hint of sweetness and light color to an otherwise malty Imperial IPA. And of course, the heft hopping added plenty of citrus, passion fruit, and pineapple flavors, along with a nice, dry herb essence.
