COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A take on the Black IPA that is a lil’ different. The volume of malt was toned down here to let the blend of American hops shine through. At 5.2% ABV, this is a highly quaffable IPA.

Cask at Shirlington location. Was poured a dark color, still a bit translucent (like soda), carbonation is quite subdued. Aroma is roasted malts, hops are quite present. Flavor is, extremely hoppy - bitterness is quite low, and there’s a heck of a lot more floral and aromatic notes to this one. Enjoyed.

Draft at DC location. Dark brown but light enough to allow some light through. Thin tan head. Light roasted malt aroma. Bitter, decent finish. A lighter take would make this a candidate for a session beer.
