Notes/Commercial Description:
Our Black IPA combines the roasted malt flavors of porters and stouts with the bright hoppiness of the American IPA. The brew is dry hopped for additional flavor and aroma, without adding unnecessary bitterness.

According to brewer legend, Black IPA’s were first brewed in Vermont in the mid-1990’s. Like many modern American beer styles, this beer combines the traditions of classic European brews with the newer tradition of the American hop profile. The Brewers Association legitimized the style in 2010, when it was added to the Great American Beer Festival guidelines for the first time.

Had on tap at Max's (from notes on 6/21/13)

A: Pitch black with minimal head and ok lacing.

S: Nice spice flavor like most black IPAs

T: Nice burnt rye flavor. Dark profile with the hops. No real pine or citrus to note due to the strong spice flavoring, but a bit smoky.

M: A decent bit of carbonation with nice bubbles and crispness towards the end.

O: A strong offering and a good black IPA. Nice stuff.
