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.

solidfunk (9407) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - DEC 9, 2014
This is fabulous, and something different from the rest. Has roast, caramel, chocolate and something that tastes like light anise or some other herb. Great balance. Black pour with good head and lacing. Light bitter finish. Tap at Churchkey.

[email protected] craft & co London. Small redblack. Intense resinous pine grass herbal Earthy notes. Great lingering pleasant bitterness. Full mouthfeel with absence of roasted malts, so the black malts more for the colour. Super brew.
