Back in Black

Brewer: 21st Amendment Brewery

Location: San Francisco, California

Interesting Fact: The character pictured on the can is Paul Revere on his famous midnight ride. The brewery claims they are rebelling against British style IPA with this brew!

Alcohol Percentage:   6.8%

Survey says: As the unique name implies, this IPA style brew was practically black in color. I suppose it’s the “Rich Dark Malts” referenced on the label that accounts for this dark color. It poured to a very light head with a nice beer aroma.  It has a full, rich heavy body similar to a Guinness style beer. Although this is an IPA, it did not taste overly hoppy and did not have that bitter bite so often experienced with today’s IPAs. There was no hint in flavor to the slightly higher alcohol content of 6.8%.  It was very drinkable. The panel liked this one and would definitely try it again.
