Hops. Hops. And more hops. This double dry-hopped, high-octane IPA registers at 100+ IBU. The earth, piney and passion fruit aromas rouse the palette for this Imperial IPA’s bountiful punch. A robust malt backbone balances this over-the-top, highly-hopped Imperial IPA, that one could only find in the great Pacific Northwest.

Boot Toss Triple IPA makes its annual debut today at the Brew Hall and on tap @brouwerscafe in Seattle. Look for additional kegs at Hop Mob events over the next 10 days. Massive amounts of Mosaic, Centennial, and Summit hops lend essences of tangerine, bubblegum, and blueberries.
