Juice Head, Cascade Chaos, Black IPA.
Oh, what? Beer? Yeah beer!
I didn't take a break in drinking it, just a break in posting it.
But this is worth posting about. I really like dark malty beers, I also like a good dose of hops, so red ales and black IPAs are two styles I'll always look out for. Fortunately the boys/children @beerjerknz included this lovely in the latest box.
It's a proper black IPA, with some strong malt flavors, chocolate, dark caramel, some toffee and a hint of coffee backed with some real bitterness, notes of pine and grapefruit with a solid citrus zing on the end.
Its dark black in colour, but quite light on the tounge with a gentle but very persistent head. There are some great odors out of the bottle upon opening but they sadly dont persist in the glass.
But Cascade Chaos is an awesome example of the style, although it maybe to big and strong for some, and a little to complex and deep for anyone expecting a simple IPA, and those strange people who dont like dark beers might be in for a fright.
Juice Head is a new brewery to me, but ill be looking for more, and will buy more of this example of their workings if I ever see it again.
