Ale of the Imp pours out a brilliantly clear gold color with an off-white colored head. The aroma is an intoxicating mixture of pungent piney hops with fragrant floral notes. Ale of the Imp is the perfect craft beer for the hop head! It has an herbal hop flavor with a bright, citrusy character, and light toasted malt backbone. With just under 100 IBUs, Ale of the Imp, has an aggressive hop bitterness that lingers on the palate. Lingers. This is a medium-full bodied beer with high carbonation and a dry finish.
