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.

Rune (13195) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 1, 2014
Poured from keg at Grove Inn. Almost black as pitch. Shiny naked surface, dotted spots on the glass. Aroma of roasted, earthy malts. Dark fruity and dark honeyed flavours alongside coffee grounds leading to a long-lived ending of malty bitterness. Well bodied. A lovely, tasty drink (Huddersfield 09.07.2014).

allmyvinyl (10844) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 21, 2014
Keg at York Tap. Pours near-black, thick tan head. Aromas of roasted coffee and orange, some pine. Big hop flavour, lots of roast bitterness too. Lots going on, rich mouthfeel. Finishes with a lingering orange bitterness. Very nice.

2.9
ManVsBeer (10766) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2014
Keg @ Old Gate, Hebden Bridge. Extremely dark but not black with a very thin head. It’s instantly recognisable as a Black IPA with plenty of tropical fruits in its rather fizzed up texture. Its aroma is its most complex part combining fruity hops and roasted malt.
