COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Alaskan Double Black IPA is a combination of beer styles, with a flavor profile most similar to an Imperial IPA and the dark black color and rich flavors usually found in heartier stouts and porters.
The Black IPA, also called "Cascadian Dark Ale" or "American-style India Black Ale," is a relative newcomer to the craft beer world. We may not know what to call it yet, but we do know it’s dark and it’s hoppy and we can’t get enough of it.

bhensonb (10934) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 13, 2010
Bomber from Nugget Market in West Sacramento, CA. Pours really dark brown with a foamy 2 finger tan head. Dark malt aroma with some floral hop. Full bodied with creamy/foamy carbonation. Flavor is very dark malt, there’s a moderate heat burn, and there is chocolate and a mix of hops. Pretty busy ale. Finishes like a hopped stout, sort of. GFB!
