Beer Style: Russian Imperial Stout  (13F)

Russian Imperial Stout
Beer Color


Double IPA with very complex malt flavors that are well matched by very tropical and fruity aromas and flavors from the large additions of Citra hops. Great head retention and clarity. Liked by many that don't like IPA's, loved by those that do. Recipe verbatim from Can You Brew It Podcast. Read notes for additional brewing info.
