COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hop Noir is a delectable Black IPA, dripping with piney, aromatic Centennial hops. The malt base is dark and rich, anchored by organic black malt. This provides a strong foundation for the extravagant kettle hopping and dry-hopping that this beer experiences. Enjoy with a night-light.

Bottle at home. Aroma is dark malt, coffee, roast, fruity hops, citrus, grapefruit. Flavour is light sweet and medium bitter. Body is medium, a bit weaker than I would expect from the abv. Otherwise a nice Black IPA on the roasty coffee side of the style.
