Cask Conditioned Imperator Black IPA
Abita's Imperator Black IPA is made with a combination of pale, caramel, chocolate, and black malts. This gives the beer a very dark color and a strong roasted malt favor. It is liberally hopped and dry hopped with Apollo, Centennial, Amarillo, Mosaic, and Citra hops, which gives the beer an intense hop flavor and aroma. They then cask condition the beer and add even more Amarillo hops to the cask to accentuate the fresh hop aroma.
