Black Rye IPA – Bridge Brewing Company

From Bridge Brewing out of North Vancouver comes their “Black Rye IPA”.  The beer pours a black opaque colour with a deep brown head.  The aroma consists of roasted malts, mild toasted rye and floral hops.  The flavour is of burnt malts, roasted coffee, rye, earth, resin, hint of fruit and a good hit of hops bitterness.  The alcohol content comes in at 5.8% with an IBU of 68.  This beer hits all the notes you would expect in a black IPA and would be a great choice for anyone looking for a Cascadian Dark Ale.
