Brewed by Vintage Brewing Company
The relatively new Black IPA style, alternately called "Cascadian Dark Ale", celebrates the craft-brewing heritage and bountiful hop cultivation of the American Pacific Northwest. Brewers in "Cascadia" (Oregon, Washington, and Northern California) are fortunate to have the freshest and best hops close at hand, and brewing trends that originate there are often bold and hop-heavy in the extreme.
Well we love hops, too! "Black Mirror" packs a whallop of American hops into every delcious sip. Brewed to double India Pale Ale strength (8.2% abv), it features an intense and beguiling hop aroma, bracing bitterness (calculated at over 100 IBU’s!), and a complex tangle of hop flavors like a sticky resinous bramble in an ominous shadowy forest of dark malt. Cascadia is really just a state of mind!
