Described as “… an assertively hoppy, yet balanced Imperial IPA with notes of grapefruit and melon”, Four Winds Vexillum Imperial IPA is a returning favorite, only available once a year.
In speaking with the brewers we learned the following.
Vexillum is an ancient Imperial Roman symbol for strength and nobility. This intensely hoppy IPA reveals notes of grapefruit and melon while finishing bitter, yet affably balanced.
Naturally you can pair this with fun recipes like Nashville hot chicken, fried pickles, chicken wings, spicy Thai curries, pizza, and cheescake.
One last thing. The brewery has recognized increased demand for this beer and are considering a more frequent release - when they increase production. Till then, be thankful if you are one of the lucky ones who enjoy a glass or bottle of this unique Imperial IPA.
Oh one more caution from the brewers.
Despite its high IBU count, this Imperial IPA is suspiciously smooth and can sneak up on you at 9%. Be careful friends!
9% ABV | 100 IBU
