Brendan’s Take

We’ve talked about doing a black IPA for a while now, and it’s something we’ve never done before at Sawdust City. It’s a fun style because it offers a great opportunity to make a more complex IPA that balances the hoppiness you’d expect with the roasted character from the dark malts. But mainly I wanted to make a beer with a Bruce Springsteen reference and this seemed like the perfect opportunity ?
