Brother Benjamin Imperial IPA


Greenbush Brewing Company's Brother Benjamin
Imperial IPA brewed with honey

Pouring reddish amber with good head retention, this imperial IPA has strikingly strong floral notes that seem to waft out of the glass straight to my nose. This is a very bitter beer but is beautifully balanced with a very strong American hop flavor and aroma. Overall this is an incredibly delectable beer that I would seek out as a wonderful example of an imperial IPA. Probably my favorite Imperial IPA so far.

The Concept

Brew Day is a brewers collective with a different obsession every month. Each month the homebrewers involved will tackle a different style of beer by brewing a batch and getting their malt-stained hands on as many pints of the same style as possible. Each brewer will bring their own warped concept to their batch helping to create as many variations as there are brewers involved.
