En Svart India Pale Ale. För alla som är bekanta med akronymen IPA kan prefixet Black i sammanhanget anses vara en infernalisk kontradiktion. Black IPA eller Cascadian Dark Ale, är en relativt ny öltyp som härstammar från området runt Cascade Mountains i nordvästra USA. Det är ett svart öl, bryggt som en IPA med massor av humle men med mörkare malt för att få en touch av choklad och rostade toner. Vår version innehåller malt från Europa och humle från Nya Världen. Tradition och innovation. Mattias Hammenlind, Bryggmästare.

oh6gdx (25453) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 30, 2013
Bottled (thanks to mom & dad, shared with Kimi). Very deep rubyish copper colour, close to black, with a small off-white head. Aroma is roasted malts, citrus, fruits, some ripe fuits, resin and mild spruce as well. Flavour is quite much bitter fruits with some floral and mild toasted notes as well. Also shows alcohol in the flavour, yet it’s very nicely balanced.

omhper (23711) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - NOV 24, 2012
Bottled. Black with rich, firm beige head. Aroma of citrus and pineapple with espresso behind. Mid sweet with near full body and clean, rounded mouthfeel. Concentrated flavours of tar, licorice and citrus. Potent warming finish with earthy licorice and long bitterness. A well made solid beer, exploring the borderline between two newly invented styles - imperial porter and black IPA.
