Dad & Dave’s black IPA from the guys down at Sydney’s northern beaches. Black IPA is my favourite style of beer but is rarely done well. The nice roasty malts of a stout with the aggressive hopping of an IPA….yum! Perfect for those of us who don’t want to drink a coffee chocolate milk shake.

Dad & Dave’s IPA pours a dark black with an extremely generous thick caramel frothy head. Strong roasted malt on the front palate with a coffee chocolatey middle like a subtle stout and then, well only the slightest hint of hops which is fair enough for the style but I prefer more aggressive dry hopping in my black IPAs. It’s a great entry level black IPA for the uninitiated! Good beer, cheers!
