Product Details

Your inner cynic says: "Wait, wait ... isn't this just an Imperial Stout?" Well, let's answer your inner cynic's question with another question: "Isn't a Dunkelweizen just a darker, maltier Hefeweizen?" The answer is both yes and no.

There you go, inner cynic. Incubated in West Coast craft breweries and brewpubs (the same folks who brought you American Pale Ale, American Amber Ale, and Imperial IPA – they weren't always established styles, either!), these hefty concoctions throw all pretense at subtlety right out the window.

An ebony pint with a beige head is surrounded by an aromatic citrus-and-pine force field, backed by a smooth roastiness redolent of cocoa and French roast coffee. Full-bodied, hop-bitter, and boozy, this beer is compelling enough to both fuel and quash the argument of its stylistic integrity, and it goes great with a blue-cheese stuffed sirloin burger or steak.

If you enjoyed Gunflint Trail Black IPA, or India Brown Ale, you'll love this kit!

Black IPA a HIT

Even my friend who has never cared for IPA was a convert on this brew!!!!

Black IPA is one of the best ales I've brewed.

The Obligatory Review

Black IPA extract kit. It was black like it should be. It was bitter like it should be. It has a tan creamy head like I guess it should have. Is it the best black IPA I've ever had? No. Is it the worst that I've ever had? No. So the real question here is would I buy the kit again? Maybe. I would have to try a different black IPA kit to make a comparison.

Ran this kit as directed. Came out really nice. I let it sit in my secondary for 5 weeks and it’s very smooth and easy drinking. Head retention is very nice. Pours black with a perfect tan head. I’ll definitley be making it again
