Introducing OLBER'S PARADOX, a 7.7% Black IPA... So, why does it get dark at night? In modern astronomy, Olber’s Paradox addresses the seemingly obvious answer to this simple question. Everyone knows that when the sun sets below the horizon, the night sky fades to black, introducing its infinite blanket of luminous stars cascading across the Milky Way galaxy. But therein lies the problem, if the universe is never ending and homogeneously populated with infinite brilliant stars throughout, then one’s observation of light must eventually surpass its own threshold of darkness. That being said, this controversy implies that the night sky should always be illuminated, with an absence of darkness in between the stars. As each star in the universe is unique in its own make up, we can’t help but pay homage to a style that drives its own paradox, the Black IPA. We introduce Olber’s Paradox. This offering is seriously hoppy, jumping out of the glass with notes of pine, citrus, berry and stone fruit, supported by highly kilned rye and barley malts for color, body and a pillowy head retention. With a lighter body, smooth finish and nestled at 7.7% abv, this beer will keep you coming back for another sip of refreshing hoppiness to start taking you down the rabbit hole of life’s other big mysteries.

    Pint can pours with a nice deep dark colored body that supports a nice light tan head of foam that leaves behind plenty of spotty lacing. The aroma offers up a pleasing dark malt roastiness blended with a hoppy dankness that then flows into pine hop nuanced citrus hops. The taste delivers a blast of bitter pine and slightly dank hops as well as bitter grapefruit hops and a dash of citrus juiciness. Of course the hoppiness is paired nicely with a varied array of roasted malts to almost burnt malts. This reaches CDA balance and yum.
