This Week's Brew : Black IPA

We brewed a Black IPA in Burien today. This somewhat unusual style, also known south of the border in neighboring Oregon as "Cascadia Dark Ale," combines the depth of flavor of a Black Beer with the hop assertiveness of an IPA.

Our take on this emerging style uses Chinook, Centennial, and Cascade hops to create a balanced bitter/flavor/aroma profile. A blend of organic chocolate, roast, black, and crystal malts supplies the foundation upon which we add a layer of dry-hopped complexity.
Look for it on tap in both our pubs in the coming weeks.
