TORONTO, ON – Beer Academy has announced a seasonal beer that was a hit last summer is returning in a slightly tweaked form.
Cascadian Dark IPA is a 5.8% abv dark ale with a strong hop character thanks to the use a plenty of Cascade hops as well as the new addition of Pacific Gem hops from New Zealand. It has the following tasting notes as provided by the brewery:
Don’t let your eyes deceive you when you see Cascadian Dark IPA’s near black color and fluffy latte shaded foam. The roasty sensations you may expect are delicate and clean, only teasing at chocolate and coffee. This beer’s real identity shows up with bright citrusy hops that weave grapefruit, orange zest and pine together on your nose and palate. Moderately strong bitterness is crisp and complemented by gentle roast – allowing two brisk varieties of hops to open up on your palate leaving you refreshed and satisfied.
Cascadian Dark IPA will be going on sale today (Thursday October 3rd) in the Beer Academy tasting room and retail store, where it will be available in 625 ml bottles, 1.89 L growlers, and on draught while supplies last.
