Looks can be deceiving, and in this instance don’t be deceived by the dark, stout like appearance of this beer. Whilst pouring smooth with a stout like hue, you will not be welcomed by the warming richness of coffee and chocolate like characteristics. But instead, prepare yourself for the startling notes of passionfruit and oranges over a resinous, malty backbone. But how, you ask? Because this is a classic Black IPA, our first of the colder months. And why, because, much like our brewers looking in their sight glasses during transfer, as you watch this bubble in your glass you have an obscured view of reality. Brewed using a heavy dark and caramel malt bill to give the beer a dark hue and lingering sweetness whilst the hop combination of Citra, Centennial, Simcoe and Strata produce those bright and refreshing tropical and resinous citrus flavours we have all grown to love in a modern day IPA.
