Description Additional Information
Get ready to dive into the darkness with the Nighthawk Imperial Black IPA. This beer means business, an incredibly hop forward flavor and aroma attacks your senses from first sip. Using an impressive 9 oz. of hops we blend our favorite American varietals to create and complex and long lasting hop experience of tropical fruits, orange, and a lemon finish. Pours Midnight Black with an off white head this brew forgoes the heavy roast and astringency you would expect, instead supporting the hops with a slight roasty chocolate malt backbone to add an entirely new dimension to your new favorite IPA.

- Due to the high Original Gravity of this brew we recommend making a yeast starter or purchasing an additional vial of yeast.

- This brew uses a two-stage dry hopping process. After 7 days of primary fermentation you will open your fermentation vessel and add 1 oz. Centennial and 1 oz. Amarillo. After an additional week you will transfer to a secondary and dry hop with 1 oz. Falconers Flight and 1 oz. Amarillo for five (5) days and then keg/bottle your brew.

Experimental Brewing Ideas

Alternate Hops

This beer is a beast that contains so many flavors intermingled that we like to keep the base the same and alternate the hop selection. You really can't go wrong but we do recommend staying within the Citrus realm as the more spicy English hops may become dominated by the malt profile.

Grilled Shrimp Kabobs

Lightly grill Shrimp, Peppers, and Onions on a Kabob and enjoy them with the Nighthawk Black IPA. The veggies and shrimp provide a fresh and delicate flavor that the Nighthawk pleasently contrasts with big hop and malt notes.
