Boulevard Grainstorm Black Rye IPA

Double IPA7.7% ABV65 IBU

Just when you thought it was safe to come out of the root cellar, along comes Grainstorm, a big, wet wallop to the senses. In the glass, dark and turbulent clouds gather. A high-pressure system of pungent hops collides with a stationary front of barley, wheat, and rye. The forecast: a veritable monsoon of flavor, with surges of roasty malt, microbursts of hops, and a chance of golfball-sized hail. The extended outlook calls for unseasonably pleasant enjoyment.

This dark, assertively-hopped ale features a special blend of malts, giving it a rich, deep color without adding roastiness, and allowing the distinctive tang of rye to shine through. Hops take center stage, however, with Amarillo, Simcoe, and Citra applied generously in dry hopping. The piqant, fruity characteristics of the hops perfectly complement the rye.

The rich, hop forward character of Grainstorm allows for favorable pairings with strongly-flavored dishes such as spicy sausage, BBQ meats, peppery cheeses, and game.

The big sister of the Little Sumpin' Sumpin' Ale...Lots of wheat for a curious malt complexity and leaving it light in color, but huge in flavor and satisfaction.
