“Black IPA” is a silly descriptor (black pale ale, right?). But it’s become a recognized sub-style of the ever popular, boldly hopped, American IPA. The hops bitterness is restrained, making room for a hint of dark grain bitterness, with coffee and dark chocolate undertones. The hops are spicy, citrusy, piney, and resiny. And the body is lighter than a stout or even a porter.
