In this craft beer blog, Big Horn Ram Brewing Hopcicle Imperial IPA is being feature in this post. This is a limited run and seasonal brew from the Wheeling location. If you read my earlier beer blog, you know the history of this brewery. If you have not, please, read the first part of that beer blog. Let us get into the brew.
This Imperial India Pale Ale has a deep copper color with a constant white head on the beer. The smell is a heavy citrus to the beer. The taste has a heavy citrus but a nice malty backbone to cut down the hops in this big beer. The aftertaste has a dry cirrus that lingers. For being a big IPA, this is a pretty drinkable beer.

Closing, this Imperial India Pale Ale is not crazy over hop like other Imperial India Pale Ale. I have to say this is what I thought of this beer. If it was a solid, you would be licking this like crazy. Since it is in liquid form, it is smooth and silky on your tongue for the mouth feel. It is pretty drinkable and malt backbone is pretty solid. These brewers at Ram Wheeling did a great job on this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
