Chock-full of six big, bold American whole-leaf hops, we’ve created an intense flavour of tropical and citrus fruits with a slight pepperiness and dry finish. It’s all in the method – we periodically add in the hops throughout the brew to get the most out of each one. The complexity and vibrant fruitiness of Impressment is held up nicely by the bittering and the higher alcohol volume.
