Spearhead Brewing Company: Big Kahuna

bigkahuna-can-new

 

Big Kahuna, a copper coloured Imperial IPA brewed by the Spearhead Brewing Company of Kingston, Ontario, powers forward with 100 IBUs and 10 percent abv. It is double dry-hopped with Warrior, Cascade, Hallertau Blanc and Cashmere hops to good effect. Big, bold floral notes fold into a defining hop bitterness, that is unrelenting in nature.

A reluctant malt sweetness appears with purpose to balance it all out as the flavours unfold. For the moment! And then another wave of hop bitterness rolls over and the surf’s up on your palate. Brewed with pure pineapple juice that doesn’t get in the way.
