Narrow Gauge Brewing King Fallen Flag
What the brewers say
Imperial IPA double dry hopped with Citra and Mosaic.
What our panel thought
Peach, mango, light coconut. Grainy mouthfeel with a fairly dry finish. Esters stay on the front of the palate, so it doesn’t seem cloying. You can smell the alcohol and feel a touch of it, but the drinkability of this beer is kind of scary. Starts lightly sweet and complex, then fades into wanting another sip (or gulp).
What our editors thought
Sweet orange, pith, and a touch of herbal dankness combine for a deliciously sweet yet intensely character-ful beer. As it unfolds, the sweet notes subside as the dank herbal wormwood notes push forward, and a whole new complexity arises.
