Hop Head Black IPA
BLACK IS THE NEW HOP HEAD IPA FOR TREE BREWING
- BC–based Craft Brewer Adds Colour to New Brew -
February 14, 2012 (Kelowna, BC) – Tree Brewing’s Hop Head IPA has been winning awards for years in the craft beer industry, but that’s not stopping them from continuing to experiment and mix things up. This week Tree is introducing its Hop Head Black IPA into the British Columbia market as an Occasional Rarity, and hopes that it will be as well received as Hop Head IPA and its sibling Hop Head Double IPA.
“The Hop Head IPA family is growing,” says Tree Brewing President, Tod Melnyk. “We have an award-winning brew in Hop Head IPA, and we introduced its hoppier companion Hop Head Double IPA four years ago to great accolades. So our Brewmaster Stefan Buhl decided it was time to go darker and really step up the malt flavours for Hop Head Black IPA. We’re thrilled with how it turned out, and are sure our Hop Head fans will be too.”
The brew is a dark brown/black colour, and delivers an aroma of roasted malt tones. With five different varieties of superior hops and six malts, the new Hop Head Black IPA (8.8 ABV) recipe brings out a malt forward taste with a lingering hop bitterness.
Hop Head Black IPA is a limited release, and is now available in 650mL bottles at select stores throughout British Columbia for $7.95
