RAINDOGS BREWING CO. OXYMORON BLACK IPA

Raindogs Brewing Co. Oxymoron Black IPA. Usually after a Double or Imperial IPA I’ve pondered the philosophical contradiction of a Black Pale Ale, especially of the IPA variety. At last a brewer from one of my favourite cities has also recognised this dilemma and named their BIPA “Oxymoron”.

As this is the first bottling of Oxymoron they may be forgiven for the over carbonation. The head to beer ratio was about 98:2 when I first poured it. It settled, not unlike a Guinness, and I was rewarded with a rich dark chocolate hoppy aroma. The first sip was full rich chocolate malt with spicy hop bitterness and this continued to the last drop.

This blurs the line between a Hoppy Porter and a Black IPA, but who cares. Just get your hands on this delicious beer. If they get the carbonation right it will be perfect.
