Alc Vol. 7.2%
THE NEW BLACK IPA
This reborn High Octane release is powered by the twin pillars of malt and hops, firing together in unison. From one, dark abyssal depths of spiced berries and caramel. From the other, resinous pine and freshly-cut citrus zest. Dry, bitter and intense this is an India Pale Ale that wears a cloak of dark malt. IPA is back in black.

The Brew Sheet
Alcohol by Volume (a measure of booziness created by the yeast)
International Bitterness Unit (the bitterness of a beer from the hops)
Original Gravity (abbreviated OG) is a measure of the fermentable and unfermentable substances in a beer wort before fermentation. Those substances are often the sugars that will be converted to alcohol during the fermentation process.
Black Ale / Black IPA
Beer styles are the categorisation of beer into easily distinguishable types. When doing this we look at history, colour, carbonation, bitterness, ingredients, mouthfeel… the list goes on
Cara, Carafa, Pale, Medium Crystal
We'd typically use a lightly kilned Base Malt in a beer recipe, then add Speciality malts (sometimes darker, more complex, different flavours) in small quantities to change the overall taste and colour of the beer.
Hops are used in loads of ways, and they can give different characteristics to beer such as Aroma and Bitterness– this is why they rock!
