A must for every #craftbeer aficionado - #surlydarkness  A perfect score of 100 on Ratebeer.com - an annual Russian Imperial Stout that is hard to get, but well worth it. #hops and much more make this a MUST for those who appreciate the best life has to offer!

I am still contemplating #growinghops  but until the snow melts and the ground thaws out, savoring the product of hops will have to do.  Have you heard of #blakkr  ?  This "double black as night IPA" Imperial Black Ale is a collaboration of three of the finest craft brewers in the United States of America - III Floyds, Surly and RealAle.  Enjoy #craftbeer  and expand your horizons.

BLAKKR
This double black as night IPA is too massive for just one brewery's efforts. BLAKKR took the trinity of Real Ale Brewing Co., Surly Brewing Co. and Three Floyds Brewing Co. to actualize this crushing ale. This Imperial Black IPA has flavors of black licorice and bitter sweet hop aromas of pineapple. 
STYLE: Imperial Black IPA
MALT: Pale, Carafa Special, Oats, Crystal
BITTERING HOPS: Warrior 
AROMA HOPS: Simcoe, Centennial 
YEAST: English Ale

OG: 22º Plato
ABV: 9.99% v/v
COLOR: 4.5 ºSRM
IBU: 85

While waiting to #growhops  this season, try an Indeed Brewing, Day Tripper Pale Ale.  At 5.4% ABV and 45 IBU, it is a very palatable IPA for the masses.  This #ipa is a good example of what #hops  can do for your brew.
