Alechemy Black Aye PA (4.8%)

Black Aye PAI like this very much, but then I do like a good Black IPA and this is just that.
It’s not a groundbreaking beer in any way, but it does everything you want and it does it well.
A treacle and tropical fruit aroma drifts up at you as the beer sits deep and dark in your glass.
The malts are tannin dry, leathery, packed with coffee and bitter chocolate, and the hops are stinging nettle sharp, slapping you with lemon zest and grapefruit flesh.
The finish is immensely dry and bitter and long, and in fact the more I drink the more I decide that this is more than just a well made BIPA, Black Aye PA is a bloody good beer.
