This Black IPA / Cascadian Dark may ‘celebrate the Dark Side of the Force’ but the New World Hops positively shine through in a smooth, crisp and drinkable ale.
Look: Pours a deep black-brown with lasting lacing and off-white head.
Aroma: Smokey roasted dark malts with piney hop accents and some light orange zest and pineapple fruit notes.
Taste: Caramel, chocolate and biscuit sweetness balanced with crisp bitterness on the palate. Medium bodied, velvety mouthfeel and a lingering bitter finish.
Verdict: Well balanced, fine depth and smooth. This is an Agent of Evil we’d happily side with.
