  • 4 Giants 9.2 %

    reDANKulous Imperial Red IPA is a no frills, bold 9.6% ABV India Pale Ale. It pours a pleasing deep amber with some sweetness due to the Caramalt and roasted barley used in the malt bill. But hops are the true headliner in this elaborate sensory experience. The spicy, piney, tropical complexities of Chinook, Mosaic and Simcoe hops hit you right away with their dank aroma—and they stick around. Take a sip to have your palate simultaneously walloped and caressed in all the right places. Combined, the hops take the beer to 70 IBUs. It’s not just ridiculous. It’s reDANKulous.
