The Island 1842 is an Imperial IPA designed for those who prefer a bold and powerful drink. Our goal with this beer was to coax out and showcase every nuance that our outsized malt and hop bill had to offer.
This beer’s hop character is potent with additions in the first wort, constantly through the boil, at flameout and then generously during fermentation. In order to balance the strong hop profile, we built an appropriately robust malt backbone.
The moment you pour Island 1842 into your snifter, expect a powerful nose of spicy, floral and zesty hops. The complexity of flavor will then continue to unfold with each sip and the flavor will linger on the palate.
