Renaissance Enlightenment Fresh Hopped Black The RIPA (500ml Bottle)
New Zealand is famed for its hops and every year we drive over the Mountain range to Motueka & pick up a trailer load of freshly harvested hops to make our "fresh hop" beers with. Black the RIPA is a trophy winning Black IPA made with rye & NZ malts. The fresh hop version features fresh Nelson Sauvin & Cascade that brings out citrus, passionfruit & earthly flavors.
An emerging beer style roughly defined as a beer with IPA-level hopping, relatively high alcohol and a distinct toasty dark malt character. Typically lacks the roastiness and body of a strong stout and is hoppier than a strong porter. Expressive dry-hopping is common. Also called India Dark Ale, India Black Ale, Cascadian Dark Ale, Dark IPA, and sometimes India Brown Ale.
