  • Pour opaque. Half glass of tan foam that is thick and frothy. Slow recession leaves a rocky head. Lacing is plentiful, immediate.

    Aroma is stinging pine hops. Chocolate. Caramel hidden behind the hops.

    Taste is creamy to the lips to start. Hops begins in the middle, lasting to the finish, creating a bitter end. Pine, light citrus and a touch of sweet.

    Medium body and carbonation. The beginning of the sip has a nice creaminess. Dry.

    A solid beer, slightly above average. Too much bitterness in the finish to make it easy drinking. Enjoy!

Beer Notes
  • The Mothman Black IPA is a hop forward, medium bodied black ale. The strong hop flavor is from the use of the choicest Pacific Northwest hops; lending to a balanced bitterness of citrus and hints of floral. The German 2-row and English Crystal malts offer a touch of roasted toffee and chocolate. At 6.7% abv and 71 IBU’s, this Black IPA promises to satisfy any hophead.
