To possess Dark Thoughts with the precise amount of pure evil, we cold steep the hell out of roasted wheat for 24-36 hours. By utilizing this slow and torturous process, we’re able to extract the rich chocolate, sweet and fruity flavor compounds while leaving behind the harsh and tannic flavors of the roasted malt—think of rich cold-brewed coffee vs. that of the heartburn-inducing gas station variety.

Style History
Black IPA/Cascadian Dark Ales are an attempt to marry the dank, citrus and pine characteristics of a classic Northwest IPA with the flavors, aromas and colors of dark roasted malts. With a controversial and sordid history, CDAs are thought to have been first brewed in the Pacific NW, specifically in the area from BC, Canada to Northern California—known as the Republic of Cascadia. They are more commonly referred to as black IPA.
