5 – Black IPA

In this episode we look at Mike’s favourite style of beer the Black IPA. Many despise it’s contradictory title, but inside the beer itself you’ll find two elements that go together better than expected, roasted malts and heavy hops.


As usual, we brew one ourselves, talk about the style and our recipe, before trying out these commercial examples:
