DetailsBorn on the West Coast, perfected on the North Coast. Our Black IPA draws inspiration from the northernmost reaches of the great Midwest. Like people who endure the long cold winters of northern Minnesota, this dark and hoppy brew is more robust than its western cousin but is right at home in any region that cultivates a pioneering spirit.
Gunflint is as dark as a night deep in the north woods, with hops as bright as the Milky Way over the tree tops. It will lead you down a path of rich caramel and toffee maltiness highlighted with a light roasted bitterness and a hint of cacao. The earthy and piney hops loaded throughout this intense beer envelop you with the essence of the wilderness and will put you in the right frame of mind to blaze a new trail into the unknown.

1 year agoGreat kit!!I have made this kit twice now and the first time was amazing!! Now for the second time I have harvested the yeast from the first brew and I will call the second brew the Zombie version of this brew!!March 20, 2014An annual favoriteThis is my thanksgiving brew. Made this from both extract and all grain kits. All grain flavor is milder than the extract. The dry hop adds a flavor that is perfectly matched with the dark brewDecember 1, 2017Purchased
