Craft Beer Lineup Series: Throatlach Imperial IPA

West Coast flavor with an East Coast Twist.

throatlatch Imperial IPA

This Imperial IPA is bigger and bolder than your average IPA. It has a complex citrusy flavor that is loaded with hops. The throatlatch IPA is the last, but certainly not the least, of our four main beers. The name “Throatlatch” is a noun inspired by a strap of a bridle or halter passing under the horse’s throat. With an 8.5% ABV, this beer is certainly big and bold. It has a complex nose and an impressive citrus, rounding out to a sweetness and caramel bite. This beer has something for everyone as it is incredibly hoppy but also gives off hints of sweet caramel malts.

As far as pairing, we suggest trying the Throatlatch with the hop trellis wrap. This wrap contains crispy bacon, chipotle peach BBQ, goat cheese & mixed greens. Imperial IPA’s are notorious for being paired with pungent cheeses, such as blue cheese or goat, making this wrap the perfect match for this crisp and hoppy beer. Grilled meats and saucy barbecues also make for great additions to any imperial IPA. For the last day of national craft beer week, we will feature the Blueberry Blonde made with fresh blueberries, stay posted!
