The Delicious Truth About Our Black IPA

ABV: 6.1% | Vegan | 100% Natural

PLEASE NOTE: Our Black IPA is nearing its best before, however, our product team has been regularly testing and can still guarantee their drinkability and deliciousness.

This season-defying IPA started life as a specialty beer brewed in the nano-brewery at our award winning pub, Sparkke at the Whitmore. Originally intended to surprise lovers of the dark arts of brewing with fresh, crisp flavours that celebrate spring, it quickly became a year round favourite. It’s accessible and balanced, and for the style, on the sessionable end of the spectrum.

Combining what we love in an American IPA and a refined dark ale, this is broad-spectrum, box-ticking deliciousness. While embracing winter beer qualities through the flavours and colours that are characteristics of dark malts, it also delivers season defying hop forwardness, balance, and a citrus crispness. Expect velvety, smooth roasted malt characters and hop aromas of juicy apricot and pine gum.

If IPA’s are your thing, or you want to introduce a sceptic of the style, this is definitely the beer for you.

Can-paign Message: To Bee Or Not To Bee

Bees: Nature’s Sex Workers

Bees are nature’s sex-workers, and for 130 million years their promiscuous cross-pollinating has brought us food, flowers, and honey. These busy workers enable a third of everything we put into our mouths but now their populations are under threat. So yeah, we’re putting bees into our gratitude journals and on to our environmental agenda. It’s really not a question - bee informed bee-fore it’s too late!
