COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Black IPA fuses speciality malts with a tropical punch bowl of new world hops to deliver a contradictory yet cultured concoction. A classically ‘pale’ aroma and quenchingly fruity palate belies a broodingly dark and deceptive appearance. Can a beer be both ‘black and pale’? Time to consult the Magic 8 Ball.

A dark ipa? An oxymoron if ever there was one. A dark pitch black beer with a golden brown head. Feint fruity aroma and a deep hoppy flavour. A roasted coffee aftertaste from the dark malts makes this a really mind bogglingly interesting drink. --- a mobile beer rating

Bottle. Purple-tan medium head. Jet black body. Massive whiff of grapefruit and passionfruit. Some smokiness. Good amount of lasting bitterness which leads to a dry finish. Decent amount of body.
