Dark Waves

Black IPA at 6.8% ABV with Citra BBC, Simcoe and Chinook BBC

Black India Pale Ale

Black India Pale Ale

Dark Waves sports pine and chocolate on the nose with dark fruits - primarily blackberry - coming out as it warms up. Flavors of pine and resin from the hops shine throughout, melding with chocolate and coffee notes from the specialty malts.

Subdued esters from the yeast contribute a slight fruityness, giving an impression of chocolate orange. This is a balanced, smooth and very drinkable beer that combines the best notes of darker malts and hop character for high quaffability.
