Minneapolis Town Hall Brewery SalmiVaari IIPA (Double / Imperial India Pale Ale). 10.3% ABV.
Beautiful cornucopia in the nose, a blend of citrus, tropical, and more. Pineapple, melon, blueberry.
In the mouth: Intense bitterness starts it off. Grabs the palate and won't let go. Straddles the sweet and bitter. Citra and Mosaic, the classic combination. All the pine, the citrus, the tropical tones, ripe and resiny. Great balance in a big beer. A treat from start to finish.
From the Facebook page: SalmiVaara IIPA is bursting with ripe fruit-like hop flavors! On draft and in 750mL growlers at the Brewery now!
This 10.3% abv Imperial IPA is assertively hopped with both Citra and Mosaic pellets and lupulin powder in the kettle, whirlpool, and fermenter. Heck yes!
Farewell Erik Salmi! We miss you already, buddy!
