Cascade, Mt. Hood and an enormous amount of Columbus hops added late in the brew fermenter, give this beer the hop punch IPA lovers crave. There is also a significant malt backbone and complexity to this beer to stand up to the hop intensity.
If you consider yourself to be a hop head, and you love strong hoppy and bitter flavors look no further. Big Jim is your iconic IPA, hoppy aromatics overwhelm the aroma but the flavor is more balanced. Upfront there is a strong bitter flavor that lingers well into the after taste, but the beer is supported by dark caramel flavors which help contrast the high bitter notes.
