Lovibonds' Dirty 69 (Black IPA, Cascadian Dark Ale, 6.9% ABV)
Kane says: "Embracing the concept of reconciling the irreconcilable; Lovibonds Black IPA is both dark & roasted, and delicately fragrant. At 6.9% ABV, this is to beer what chocolate and orange is to dessert! Not roasty-toasty enough to qualify as a porter, the malt shows nice chocolate, toffee, and liquorice notes in beautiful harmony with the fruity hop that gives it a most refreshing lift. This is masterfully put together, resulting in a beer that displays the best of both fresh & fragrant and dark & bold in the same glass."
