Good George / Raglan Roast Coffee IPA (946ml Bottle)
When one of our brewers said he was going to Raglan for a session we assumed he was heading for an afternoon of, uh, listening to Bob Marley. Turns out he was hanging with the Raglan Roast crew working on a blend of our flagship IPA and their cold brew Ethiopian Sidomo Coffee. The resulting brew has subtle notes of citrus fruit and lightly roasted coffee paired perfectly with the malt backbone of the IPA.
Raglan Roast Coffee IPA (5.6%) looks light amber and slightly hazy, and has aromas of citrus, roast coffee, and hops. On the palate it's refreshing, bitter, and has a soft malt base. The coffee provides a well balanced bitterness.
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.
