HOLGATE MILLENNIUM FALCON EMPERIAL IPA

Holgate Millenium Falcon Imperial IPA. Oh my god!! You would expect Holgate Brewery to have a cracker of a beer for their 1,000th brew - and you'd be right!

The Star Wars theme comes from the use of Galaxy, Millennium and Falconer's Flight hops.... hence the Millennium Falcon Emperial IPA name.

And does the Empire Strike Back with this one.  As the label says, "engage hopper drive and may the hops be with you".

This is a big beer: 10% alcohol and 100 IBU for those who understand that kind of thing.  Tastewise, it's big, bold, hoppy but with a smoothness to it lacking in many other big, hoppy beers.

It pours with a generous head, lovely colour, but is amazingly drinkable for such a big beer.

Sure its about $20 a bottle, but if you want to try something that is out of this world, then this is your beer.

Simply, outstanding.

 

10/10
