A good Black IPA is a sublime experience with the rich malt character balancing the hop bitterness to energize the body, and a lovely hop bouquet to clear the mind. Plunge into the depths and emerge totally refreshed. This recipe is the first of the Palmer’s Premium Seasonal Series, and is inspired by Stone’s Sublimely Self-Righteous black ale, which is a personal favorite of mine.
