This beer is our take on an emerging subcategory of IPAs: Black IPAs. It pours a nice deep black color with a rich creamy head. The hop aroma in this beer is complex, consisting of a variety of fruity florals. We used three different hop varieties from Australia. While on the palate this beer is initially bitter, it melts into a subtle chocolate smoothness and drinks easy. This new style of IPA seamlessly blends the rich toasted malty flavors characteristic to dark beers with the pleasant hoppy bitterness found in India Pale Ales.
