As shrewd as any British trader, the pirate barons courted silks and spices to trade on the blackmarket. Gold and silver to line their coffers - and one treasure they valued above all else – the legendary ales brewed in Britain to withstand the long voyage to India. Rum was seafarer’s swill next to a hogshead of India Ale!
Rooted in the rich tradition of India Pale Ales, our recipe is kissed with malt as dark as the sea on a moonless night, for a dark and hoppy marriage made in homebrew heaven. A gentle bitterness sets the initial tone. Next comes opulent notes of rich malt, followed by boastful American hops with resinous tea-leaf undertones. Bergamot, pine, grapefruit, and a hint of chocolate complete the hop-heavy finish, yielding an ale that’s definitely worth plundering for.

I would say mine turned out less hoppy than I was expecting. It was still a good dark ale with a nice balance of flavor, just less black IPA than I was hoping for.
