Arcadia Brewing Company B-Craft Black Hits The Market

My contact at Arcadia Brewing, Tim Surprise, was nice enough to send me an update on their upcoming release, the B-Craft Black, a black double IPA.   I've hardly had any black IPA's that I don't like - my favorites so far have been Stone Sublimely, Grand Teton Trout Hop, Stone Escondidian - and I have no doubt Arcadia will deliver the goods with this one.  They've proven their hop chops already with the deliciously piney Hopmouth double IPA.  I'm excited to see what they'll do with this and can't wait to pick it up. 

Anyway, read the official release notes after the jump. 

(BATTLE CREEK, MICHIGAN) The "Cereal City" isn't just for breakfast anymore.  Arcadia Brewing Company of Battle Creek will release B-Craft Black, a Double IPA or Cascadian Ale on Tuesday, April 17th (Tax Day).  Combining the best malt on the planet with an overly generous amount of hops, this Black beer, at 8.5% alcohol by volume is just the tonic for those folks that need relief from their annual tax day woes.  The brewery, describes this increasingly popular style of beer as

"Massive in every way, B-Craft delivers a complex bundle of flavors with a citrus hop aroma strong enough to make a billy goat shake his head.  Moving past the huge hop aroma, rich and roasted malt flavors of chocolate and coffee move forward only to be checked by an impressive hop bitterness.  Texture and flavor dance together so seamlessly that you may need to remind yourself that while this beer slides down like a session, it delivers like an assassin!"

B-Craft Black will be available on draft and sold in retail stores in 12 oz bottles (4-Packs).
