Strand Black Sand Imperial IPA (500ml Bottle)
Black sand Imperial IPA is the dark twin of White Sand Imperial IPA. Aggressively hopped with Summit, Cascade, Amarillo and Simcoe, this bold ale finds its soul in the darker crystal malts used to color, sweeten and fortify it in contrast to its hoppy bouquet.
Imperial IPA, Double IPA or DIPA is a strong, often sweet, intensely hoppy version of the traditional India Pale Ale. Bitterness units range upward of 100 IBUs and alcohol begins at 7.5% but is more commonly in the 8.5-10% range. The flavour profile is intense all-round. Unlike barley wines, the balance is heavily towards the hops, with crystal and other malts providing support.
