Back in the day, Michael Peticolas' brother, Charlie, was a cop and COPS filmed a few of his arrests. The best of which involved a deadbeat considering resistance to his arrest. With baton drawn, Charlie demanded "Sit down or I'll SIT YOU DOWN!" Since the episode aired over 10 years ago, we've uttered the line a million times to one another and laughed every time. We're paying tribute to that line by using it to name our Imperial IPA. A big beer that will sit you down if you don't do it first. Ha. Call it “Sit Down” for short.

As for the beer itself, the intent is to exhibit the fresh and bright character of the hops. We dry hopped it with over a pound of hops per barrel of beer. It’s gold in color and the floral ester aroma is high. The hop bitterness is high, but not at all harsh. The hop flavor is high, fresh, and lively. Yet with all of our beers, it’s all about balance and this one is no exception. The malt character is fairly high and provides a tremendously full mouthfeel. Finally, the alcohol in this beer is intentionally present (and delicious).

When it comes to food pairing, IPA’s are best when paired with spice. Indian foods are often complex and focus on spices and herbs. As a consequence, the hop aromatics of the IPA can result in great harmony with spicy Indian dishes. Otherwise, find yourself some spicy Thai or jerk chicken.
