Mornington Peninsula Imperial IPA

Mornington Peninsula Brewery (Tribe)

Released April 14, 2011

Given the reception the brewery's recent IPA got, there's going to plenty of people awaiting the arrival of its big brother. The latest specialty beer from Mornington Peninsula is an Imperial IPA, tipping the scales at a hold-onto-your-hats-folks 8.5% ABV. Brewer AG says it's "burnt orange in colour" and "delivers ripe stonefruit and rock candy aromas through the lavish additions of American aroma hops". As for the palate, he says the hops are in charge there too - "citrus, earthy and floral" - with the malts there in support. He says it's "rich and resinous" with a powerful bitterness that you'd expect from a beer clocking in at 120IBUs (International Bittering Units). In brief, he describes it as "an IPA on steroids".
