Komodo Dragonfly Black IPA is a well-balanced, dark, bitter, and totally unique beer experience. We brewed this IPA with a base of fresh Pilsner Malts and darkened the color with pure Black Malts, creating a clean malt character that allows the liberal hop additions to shine through. Komodo is dry hopped and aged with a pinch of lavender to add to the overall aromatic experience.

Bottle. Black brown with a moderate brown head and a little lacing. Aroma is roasty coffee and something fruity/floral. There’s something in the aroma very familiar, pulling up a long lost memory, but I can’t nail the smell. Flavor is dark roasted malt, coffee, and a light bitter hop finish. Very nice.

I saw IPA, and expected lots of hoppiness. Instead, I got an opaque black, full headed, big-laced, bitter porter/stout (or whatever you want to call it). It’s refreshing to have a full dark brew that isn’t run by coffee nad chocolate. Very drinkable, and a definite re-do.
