Based on a similar strain used in a popular Double IPA in Vermont *cough cough*, this is one of the go-to choices for creating balanced IPA's. Imperial's Barbarian strain produces stone fruit esters and works excellent along side citrusy hops varietals.

The yeast I received was only a month and a half old. The yeast went to work great on a 1.064 IPA. The delivery was fast and the ice pack packed with the yeast was still cold! Great service!
Great fruit forward yeast. Would highly recommend for New England ipa
Just kegged a wicked ahsome NEIPA. Reached FG in about 12 days. Excellent citrus and pine aromatics, really looking forward to tasting once it's carbed up. Will use again!
