PRESS RELEASE / November, 27 2019 (Ipswich, MA) – True North Ales will release MIDNIGHT SNOW, our Winter Black IPA this week in time for the Thanksgiving holiday. It is a Limited Release, available in 16 oz four packs at better beer stores throughout Massachusetts.
Winter Black IPA
Brewed with a rich, lightly roasted malt body to complement heavy additions of piney Pacific Northwest hops. Aromas of spruce and juniper pair with flavors of coffee and chocolate orange.
We brewed this beer to produce clean, malt forward flavors, and allow hop and spice to pop. The malt bill was composed of several specialty malts to provide plenty of heavy malt/toast, spicy/earthiness, caramel sweetness, and a rich black color without the acrid/charcoal of a porter or stout. For spicing and hopping, we used Pacific Northwest hops and whole juniper berries to provide piney/conifer-like qualities.
