Vlad the Impaler Imperial IPA

We called this beer “Vlad the Impaler” for a reason. The historical figure whose name we adopted for this beer was not known for promoting peace and harmony. That said, the term “well-balanced” did not cross our minds when formulating the recipe for this beer. To be honest, we really made this beer for ourselves in an attempt to satisfy our unquenchable thirst for tongue-melting hoppy bitterness. So don’t worry, if this full-on hop assault is too intense for your taste buds, we will gladly take it back and drink it ourselves.
