The Cascadian Dark Ale, or Black IPA as some like to call it, is a fairly new style to the craft beer world. Generally, these beers are made in the stylings of an IPA (hoppy, bitter, higher alcohol) but with the addition of dark malts in the mashtun, mostly for color. They generally showcase northwest hops from the Yakima and Willamette region (hence the Cascadia homage). The end result is a very drinkable, smooth dark brown to opaque black IPA with medium to high hop bitterness and hints of roasted malt notes.
