While creating this Imperial Black India Pale Ale our master brewer Howie and his crew incorporated a variety of unique IPA style ingredients. Calypso and Zythos hops compliment the smooth malty flavors of Crystal & Munich. Dry-hopped with Falconers Flight and Centennial, the undertones of roasted and wheat add up to masterpiece of brew.
The 7.3%, 70 IBU jet black, unfiltered ale will be available in 22 oz. bottles and draft until August 2012. The edition of 12 oz. bottles will be in the Box of Brews variety pack scheduled to hit the shelves in April.
