Notes/Commercial Description:
Our black IPA is bursting with crisp, clean bitterness and layers of wonderful American hop character. Pale Ale, Munich and Naked Golden Oats give a toasty malt backbone with a smooth mouthfeel. The dark ominous color comes from the Chocolate Malt and the de-husked highly roasted malt. We want the layers of hops to shine against this roasty malt backdrop. Warrior, Citra, Chinook, Centennial and Amarillo lend bitterness as well as a wonderful cornucopia of aromas and flavors of fresh citrus fruit, pine, fresh cut mint and fresh flowers they offer.

Pours a dark brown, almost black color with an off white head and plenty of lacing. The brew smells roasted and charcoal like but also very hoppy with pine and floral notes. In the taste, chocolate maltyness and a strong piney hop presence. The brew leans towards the bitter side, but it is one tasty brew. Strong hop flavor and cocoa. Medium bodied, well carbonated brew that spent a week in the growler. Overall, a very nice American Black Ale.

Serving type: growler
