This is one of my favorite brews from Garrison, a mix between the stout & hop yard ale, the Black IPA is a great brew for those looking for a stout like texture but with the IPA carbonization.
Black in color, this coffee / chocolate smelling beer offers carbonization and the hop bitterness at the end that you would expect of an IPA. Imagine a mix of their Martello stout and hop yard ale.
I prefer this over the Imperial IPA.

Holy hybrid, this legendary hop-forward style goes dark and deep with the addition of a big, roasted malt base. Dry-hopped and Unfiltered, don’t overthink this beast, just enjoy
Malt: 2-row, Munich, Crystal, Roasted Barley, Oat Flakes
Hops: American & European
Great with grilled steak, beef stew or bold, tangy dishes. Perfect with Mandarin orange or ginger beef over rice.
Pour black with a creamy beige head. Aroma of roasted coffee and chocolate malts mingled with fresh hops. Bitter sweet chocolate hits the palate first followed by light caramel and citrusy flavours.
