Four Kings IPA was previously released in 2014 and won a gold medal for the IPA category at the Virginia Craft Brewers Festival. 

The hop build in King of Hop pairs extremely well with a range of flavors, so our brewing team had a lot of fun experimenting with test batches past year, said Starr Hill Brewmaster, Robbie O’Cain. 

Received:

  • (3) Four Kings IPA: Grapefruit Imperial Ale (15 Proof)
  • (3) Four Kings IPA: Habanero Imperial Ale (15 Proof)
  • (3) Four Kings IPA: King of Hop Imperial Ale (15 Proof)
  • (3) Four Kings IPA: Lemon-Lime Imperial Ale (15 Proof)

Four Kings IPA: Grapefruit Imperial Ale
The Grapefruit has a citrus nose and a citrus middle and end.  The grapefruit doesn't really come through until you've swallowed. 

Four Kings IPA: Habanero Imperial Ale
The nose is bitter.  But, the palate is earthy, like Nettle.  There is no peppery taste.  But, there is heat/spice on the end.  Delightful!

Please, feel free to use Starr Hill Brewery's Beer Finder so that you may get yours before the others.

Four Kings IPA: King of Hop Imperial Ale
King of Hop has a grainy/earthy nose and a toasted palate with a kick. There are citric notes.  But, they are very subtle.

Four Kings IPA: Lemon-Lime Imperial Ale
The Lemon-Lime has an earthy nose and a citric palate, which is light, airy and refreshing.
