Day #258 – Harpoon Leviathan Imperial IPA

September 16, 2011

Long day; late night. Got a good beer that I’ll sip on for awhile. I’ve got a special treat lined up for tomorrow however!!!

Harpoon Leviathan Imperial IPA

Harpoon Brewing is based out of Boston, MA. They started brewing a Leviathan series a few years back that are all usually big beers or high in alcohol. This is their Imperial IPA at 10%.

This beer pours a clear bright orange color with a fizzy white head.

Aroma is lots of hoppy notes and grapefruit. Fresh hops, resin and tree sap with perhaps a touch of wood.

Flavor is earthy and wet, sticky hops. Sweet citrus with a tart grapefruit flavor. Woody and bitter on the finish with a big tingle from the alcohol. Pretty good.
