Pitch Black IPA

  • SRM Color: 29
  • Brewer: Widmer Brothers Brewing
  • Brewer's Description: Pitch Black IPA takes you to the dark side with our take on Cascadian Dark Ale. Debittered black malt lends a midnight hue along with rich, toasty malt flavor. Generous Doses of alchemy and cascade hops provide a complex herbal aroma and subtle citrus note, balanced perfectly by a smooth Widmer Brothers finish. Embrace the Dark Side.
  • Russ' rating: 7 of 10
  • With the brew: A Saturday of Football
  • Comments: This Beer was a pleasant discovery this weekend. I recommend drinking it from a wide mouth glass as the aroma is excellent and enhances the drink. It has all the full Barley and Malt flavor of a dark Beer, but with an added Hoppy element that was extremely refreshing. The Beer did not have the viscosity you would expect from a Beer this dark, but the taste makes you find the bottom of the glass just as fast.
