New Glarus Brewing (New Glarus, WI) steps into the black IPA ring with a hoppy black release this month. Black Top was brewed the end of July, and will be released by the end of August.
Black Top is the first of its kind by New Glarus, featuring an all American hop lineup – including Citra, Chinook, and Amarillo. Those hops don’t come cheap either, making Black Top one of the most expensive to brew.
Expect this beer to pour a hop forward jet black glass brimming with aromatic bitterness. Brewmaster Dan skillfully weaves molasses and chocolate malt undertones with a soaring rush of clean citrus and pine hop notes, to deliver a drinkable Black IPA. Savor Black Top, like Wisconsin’s miles of licorice ribbons of ink that meander through armies of corn and bovine mowed fields. Enjoy the journey on a road less traveled.
The beer hits the 6% mark, available in 12oz/6pks
