Elevation Imperial IPA
Mountains are named for the multitudes of cascading waters that rush from
their glacial peaks. Oregon’s rushing rivers, cascading streams and
thundering waterfalls all flow through the deep forests and rolling
foothills. It is from these epic elevations that every batch of Full Sail
beer sources its water. Full Sail’s new Brewmaster Reserve release,
Elevation Imperial IPA, is brewed to celebrate these snow-capped mountains
and their bounty of pristine, crystal clear water.
This Imperial IPA’s full malt body is elevated by the richness of hop flavor
and bitterness. Generous amounts of Citra, Chinook, Columbus, Cascade and
Centennial hops give this beer a wonderful aroma of orange zest and lemon.
The citrus from the hops is complemented by a caramel biscuity malt flavor
that comes from the pale and crystal malts blend. Elevation finishes
balanced with a pronounced hop kick. Available in 22oz Bottles and Draught
from June to September. ABV 7.5% IBUs: 80
“We are excited to add this new brew to our Brewmaster Reserve Line-up, as a
small, independent craft brewer we have the freedom to be creative and
explore different beer styles. Every eight to ten weeks we come out with a
different beer that showcases the brewer’s art. We began the program back in
1998 as a way of celebrating our independence and creativity,” said Full
Sail’s Founder and CEO, Irene Firmat.
