The first vintage in our Brewer's Choice Series IPA is a Black IPA, showing off with an impressive 70 IBU's. A special mashing technique is used to extract the dark color of the black malt without imparting any of the roasted flavors that typically come with it. The backbone for this India style black ale is an aggressive addition of American-grown "superalpha" bittering hops. Later hop additions in the boil, give this beer its unique aromatic properties. Seven days of conditioning on an absurd amount of dry hops add to the powerful floral and citrus performance that dances back and forth for your senses to enjoy, until the very last drop makes its way from your glass.
