Black IPAs (also known as India Dark Ale, India Black Ale, Cascadian Dark Ale and Dark IPA). One of the most intense mixtures of flavours known to the beer world. Black IPAs combine the roasty, smoky, chocolate maltiness of the Stout and Porter style with the high alcohol, heavy handed hopping, intense bitterness and herbaceous, fruitiness of the IPA style. This delicious looking glass above is being filled with Homestead’s ‘Black Swan’ Black IPA on their home turf in Margaret River, Western Australia.
Black IPAs to watch out for:
- ‘Kooinda’ Black IPA (Australia)
- ‘To Øl’ Black Malts & Body Salts Black Coffee IIPA (Denmark)
- ‘Cigar City’ Either Black Ale (USA)
