Alaskan Black IPA from Alaskan Brewing is a spring seasonal beer that features the hop-forward profile of an IPA with the dark black color and flavors of a fuller-bodied porter. Cascade and Centennial hops provide a strong citrus flavor that is balanced out by hints of coffee and bitter chocolate with a subtle toasted sweetness and dark fruit highlights which leads to a pleasantly dry finish.

The Black IPA style is also known as “American-style India Black Ale” or “Cascadian Dark Ale.” Alaskan Brewing first shared their take on this new style with the limited Pilot Series release of Alaskan Double Black IPA. This India Pale Ale is made from glacier-fed water, generous additions of Cascade, Centennial and other Pacific Northwest hops, and an array of eight different pale, caramel and chocolate malts. This spring release is a more sessionable version with the same surprising balance between hops and roasted malts. Alaskan Black IPA has the look of a porter or stout but combines the roasted malty characters with the refreshing flavor and bright aroma of an American IPA.
Alaskan Brewing suggests Alaskan Black IPA as a pairing beer for dishes that combine sweet and savory. This includes everything from chocolate & ancho-chipotle rubbed pork, fried chicken and waffles or curried chocolate.
