Suruga Bay Imperial IPA

This extraordinarily complex yet balanced Double IPA is dry-hopped twice with whole flower cones and then krausened at packaging. The hop character (bitterness, flavor, aroma) is profound – vast and impactful like our local Suruga Bay is deep and magnificent.

Bryan's Comment
"Double, or Imperial, IPAs shouldn't drink like sweet high-hopped Barley Wines; nor should they taste like hop turpentine, unpleasantly assaulting your taste buds. The hop character should be defining, but in a bright, fresh, effervescent sort of way. This is exactly what you will find in Suruga Bay Imperial IPA!"

The Label Speaks

Bryan described to artist Eiko-san the flavor of Suruga Bay Imperial IPA as a 'fireworks-like festival of hop character.' Eiko-san's label artwork depicts just that – a fireworks festival in which hops are colorfully exploding in the sky over the Suruga Bay.
