Bent Stick Brewing Co. Throwin’ Shade – Black IPA at 6.5% ABV

Bent Stick Brewing Co. Throwin’ Shade – Black IPA at 6.5% ABV (C$4.50 at Collective, 473 ml, no packaging date or best before, acquired 23-Apr-2021, reviewed 3-May-2021)

Appearance: clear ruby brown with two fat fingers of fine tan head, excellent retention and moderate soapy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: pine, citrus, toasted malt, dark chocolate, hint of cat piss. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-high bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, medium lingering bitter finish. (4/5)

So, lemme get this straight: the label throws shade (hey, they say they’re doing it) on people who call this a “Black IPA” because “BLACK India PALE Ale” doesn’t make sense.

Uh huh.

So, how many barrels of this are you shipping to the Raj by schooner?

That’s what I thought.

‘Snot bad, though. (15/20)
