The Blackball Belgian Style IPA might be one of the most unique beers- both by smell and taste- we have encountered thus far. It pours a deep orange, pale color with a solid two-finger head. The aroma however is the most defining characteristic of this beer from Karl Strauss. We spent more time digging our noses into this beer than anything else! What did we find? Well, some tropical fruits like ripened banana and pineapple present themselves upfront. The beer is made with Curacao, which is most similar to an orange.
