Pyramid Discord Dark IPA

CIMG5612

Pyramid is getting in on the black IPA trend with this new seasonal. 2-row, C-80, Munich, Black, and Carafa II malts meet with Nugget, Zythos, Mt. Hood, and Cascade hops. The beer is also dry-hopped with Falconer’s Flight, Zythos, and Cascades. Let’s see how this one measures up.

Stats:
American Black Ale. 6.5% ABV. 69 IBUs. Washington. Available February-March

Dark brown in color with a nice fluffy head.

It’s got a nice hoppy nose with a heavy Cascade aroma. It’s got that nice grapefruit, orange citrus with just a little bit of pine and an herbal quality.

Mouthfeel is a light-medium body with a high-medium carbonation. It’s solid, but definitely on the easy drinking side.

Nice hoppy-ness with that heavy citrus and a bit of herbal earthyness. Hint of cocoa on the mid palate and ends with caramel and slight bitterness.

Pretty solid here. Pyramid has done a couple hoppy beers in a good way. It’s a good intro to the style that keeps it easy drinking. Definitely worth a try. 87 points.
