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.

Towey1989 (2835) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2016
Keg at The Port Street Beer House, Manchester. A slightly hazy deep brown colour with a thick, tan head. Aroma of grapefruit, mango, peach, slight pineapple, subtle red berries, a little liquorice and some roasted malts. Taste of blackcurrant, dark fruits, some grapefruit, mango, slight peach, a little roasted malts, a hint of liquorice, maybe apple and subtle floral hops. Medium bodied and moderate carbonation. A dry, liquoricy, weirdly resinous, citrus hop bitterness in the finish. A very complex BIPA, surprised by all the flavours and aromas that I got. Very balanced but doesn’t give the big, hoppy bitterness I was expecting. Fruity and nice though.
