Imperial Super Guy

The second growler I picked up at Beyond the Pale was Imperial Super Guy.  They call this the granddaddy of their Rye Guy IPA.

This feeds an IPA craving very well.

It's a whopping 9.1% ABV, 90 IBU IPA. Despite its potency, I didn't feel the same kicked that I get from other high ABV beers. Maybe that's a good thing? :)

It's a fairly heady beer on the pour. A dark amber/red colour. The aroma is the usual grapefruit and so is the taste with some malty goodness thrown in. It's a well balanced beer. I definitely enjoyed this and as I said, it fed my IPA craving well.

I need to do a side-by-side comparison of Rye Guy and ISG some time. :)
