The Obsidian Dagger IPA Noire – Dead Frog Brewery

From Dead Frog Brewery in Aldergrove comes their “The Obsidian Dagger IPA Noire”.  The beer pours a deep brown colour with a brown head.  The aroma consists of roasted malts, coffee, pine, citrus and some floral hops.  The flavour is of roasted malts, coffee, earth, pine a hint of citrus and bitterness.  The alcohol content comes in at 6.5% with an IBU of 50.  I was hoping for a little more fruit characteristic but I did quite enjoy this brew.

Commercial Description:  SPARKS FLY WHEN BOLD AND BEAUTIFUL TROPICAL HOPS MEET A DARING AND ROASTED MALT BASE.  THE HOP FLAVOURS AND AROMAS OF A POWERHOUSE IPA ARE BALANCED PERFECTLY WITH THE DEPTH AND INTRICACY OF A COMPLEX DARK ALE.

Food pairing as per the brewery:  GRILLED PORK, SPICY CHICKEN TACOS, SWISS CHEESE
