For no other reason than the word Ink in the name of this beer, I was half expecting a Black IPA.
It isn’t one.
It is, however, a very good IPA bursting with fresh tropical fruit.
From the heady aroma to the big hoppy kiss, Ink & Dagger gives you papaya and mango, pineapple, passion fruit and grapes, along with some pithy green foliage.
There’s also a solid malt body that adds some much needed sugary sweetness in the form of shortcake and caramel, rounding out the edges of the deliciously crisp juicy finish.
