India Black Ale


The wolf in sheep’s clothing!    The India Black Ale is a newer addition to the craft beer scene – only becoming an official beer style in 2015.  The dark and dreamy looking ale is actually a bright and hoppy IPA masked in a cloak of darkness.

Perhaps we should say ‘the arctic wolf in black sheep’s clothing’….
