Highland Revives Imperial Kashmir IPA

Highland Brewing (Asheville, NC) has just bottled and will be releasing an boozy version of Kashmir IPA. Imperial Kashmir was last brewed in 2007. This version clocks in at over 10% ABV. When the brewery says aggressive, they mean it.

An aggressively hopped and higher gravity version of our Kashmir IPA. Six hop varieties added at seven different times in the brew kettle, hopback, whirpool, and femienter contribute to its complexity This Imperial IPA also differs from our traditional Kashmir with the addition of over 60 pounds of dry hops per 50 barrels. In all, over 200 pounds of hops are used in each 50-barrels batch ofthis limited release. The robust, malty and delightfully intense hop flavors and aromas are best enjoyed with an extremely stiff upper lip. 

Style: Imperial IPA
Hops: Magnum, Fuggle, German Select, Styrian Golding, Willamette
Malts: 2 Row Brewers, Munich, Malted Wheat, Flaked Barley, Carapils

Availability: 22oz bombers, Draft
Arrival: April, 2013

10.2% ABV

One thought on “Highland Revives Imperial Kashmir IPA

  1. I think Highland should retire the Kashmir IPA in favor of Devil’s Britches, which everyone I’ve talked to likes much better. Save the Kashmir name for the Imperial offering.
