BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Brazos Valley Brewing Company
Texas, United States
brazosvalleybrewery.com

Style: American Black Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.00%

Availability: Spring

Notes / Commercial Description:
The crew at BVB wanted to brew something dark for our first special release. We also wanted to brew something hoppy. It is spring, but still cold outside, so we took our favorite things about The Cause IPA, and then added more hops and a lot of darkness. The result is The Effect Black IPA! There are four types of ā€œCā€ hops including Columbus, Chinook, Centennial, and Cascade plus a specialty malt from Breis called Blackprinz that makes this IPA deliciously hoppy and decidedly black. The hop profile is nicely balanced by the malt body and the subtle roasted notes that are evident in the finish. The Effect is Jet Black, 105 IBU, and 7 % ABV. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do!

This is, without a doubt, the best black IPA I've ever had.
