Imperial IPA used to essentially mean a “doubling” of everything in a recipe — dating from the time when kings and emperors would receive a brewer’s best efforts as tribute. In modern times, early efforts at west coast brewing powerhouses such as Stone, Rogue, and Blind Pig often did take that simple of an approach — start with a basic IPA, and make it times two. Over time, themes and variations came about that tweaked the formula. Preference shifted away from malt-dominators, towards a leaner, crisper, less sweet-finishing beer. The hopping regime also shifted from simply “more hops at more times” to later and later in the boil, spilling over heavily into the dry hop. The end result is a hop-dominated, high-alcohol beer that threatens yearly hop supplies with it’s obsession over the richest oils and aromatics.
Recommended: 2-stage fermentation and yeast starter
