Cask conditioned handpump Brewery Tap Leeds 01/05/13. Advertized on the blackboard as a Black IPA and the pumpclip says Hopped Black Ale so I’ve entered it as a Black IPA but in truth I reckon it’s nowhere near hoppy enough. It’s black with an off-white tight head. Roasty and lactosey amongst what is a decent level of hops. It’s tasty and very drinkable but the milky element moves it away from its intention I reckon.
