Recipe Of The Month: ``A Beer Has No Name`` session black IPA
What’s lightweight, jet black and bitter throughout? Our session black IPA is what. Though it clocks in at just over 4% abv, don’t let it’s weight fool you. An ounce each of Simcoe and Galaxy at 60, then again at zero followed by two ounces of El Dorado steeped, this one is sure to stick you with the pointy end.
4.2% ABV, 36 SRM, 56 IBU’s.
(We’re brewing this one up at our March class, so if you brew it check back and we can compare!)
