Alaska Brewing Doube Black IPAFrom Alaskan Brewing – (Juneau, AK) – It’s coming just as sure as the days are getting shorter – Black Friday is upon us, and Alaskan Brewing is recommending three new releases to combat the craziness. With the release of Double Black IPA, 2014 Smoked Porter, and the Smoked Porter Vintage Pack, Alaskan gives craft beer fans dark beers for the dark winter nights ahead.

Double Black IPA is part of the Alaskan Pilot Series – bigger beers offered in bigger bottles with bigger tastes. The aroma of Alaskan Double Black IPA consists of fresh, citrus notes from Northwest hops and the heavy, dry bouquet of roasted grains. Brewed with an array of dark malts, Alaskan Double Black IPA features the distinctive flavors of coffee and bitter chocolate with a subtle toasted sweetness. Large hop additions late in the boil, and dry-hopping after fermentation, lighten and refresh the overall perception and flavor of the beer. It finishes with a dry palate and lingering warmth and bitterness.
