Pair 3: Hunter's Brews

The last pair of 4.5 oz pours Mr. K and I shared at Hunter's Brewing last weekend were an Imperial Rye PA and an American IPA. They both had high bitterness measurements, higher than 100. 100 IBU is pretty much the max, after that it's just really bitter.

American IPA | ABV: 6.5% | IBU: 128.2
Look and Smell: This dark gold brew had little head. I didn't stop to smell this while I was drinking it.

Taste: The malt sweetness this starts with turns to bitter hops. It was very grassy-floral and it carried on in the aftertaste. A very nice IPA. I'd order it again. Not sure if Hunter's will have flagship brews, but this would be a good one!

Imperial Rye Pale Ale | ABV: 7.9% | IBU: 139.7
Look and Smell: This amber brew had a thick off-white head. The hop oils left thick lacing on the glass.

Taste: It was incredibly bitter spiced. It was sugary. This brew had an earthy/floral taste to it. It was creamy. It was a very heavy brew. I enjoyed this one as well. It didn't hide the rye at all.
