Snap, Crackle, Hop Imperial Rice IPA – Parallel 49 Brewing

From Parallel 49 brewing out of East Vancouver comes the “Snap, Crackle, Hop Imperial Rice IPA”.  This Imperial IPA pours an orange colour with an off white head.  The aroma consists of floral hops, resin and citrus.  The flavour is of malts, sweet citrus, hops bitterness and some rice notes.  The alcohol content comes in at 9.3% with an IBU of 70.  This IPA packs a punch with both alcohol and bitterness and the rice adds an interesting wrinkle into the flavour profile.  Pick up a bottle if you can still find it!

Commercial Description:  Pour this medium-bodied Imperial IPA for a bit of snap and crackle – and plenty of hop. Brewed with Motueka hops from New Zealand, it starts dry and finishes crisp.
