Glutinous juicy-fruited Imperial IPA works creamy caramel malting, honeyed spruce and floral fragrances into tropical apricot-nectar-pineapple-pear tang as pine-sapped grapefruit-peeled bittering ascends. Gooey pastry-like almond pasting deepens sugared fructose sweetness. Lemon-candied orange, tangerine and clementine illusions vie for backspace. Not as imposingly hop sharpened as bitterer stylistic rivals. Originally brewed by nearby Washington-based La Conner Brewery.
