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.
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.
