Greenport Harbor Brewing Company releases Black IPA at Bobbique on Wednesday, 1/26, with $4 pints from 7:00PM – 9:00PM.

Black IPA, both the last Greenport beer brewed during 2010 and the first of 2011 (Batch 1 and Batch 2 were brewed on 12/31/10 and 1/1/11, respectively, according to assistant brewer Greg Doroski’s blog), is also the initial effort from Project Hoppiness, an experimental one-off series showcasing strictly hop-themed creations.

Here are the official descriptions of Black IPA and Project Hoppiness:

Black IPA

This distinctly American style ale is full of fruity, citrusy hop character. A blend of bold hop varieties: Warrior, Citra, and Columbus bring an amazing, bright hop flavor and powerful aroma. The malt bill includes a charge of black malt to give a deep, dark color without the roastiness often associated with ales of this hue.

Malts: Pilsner, Carastan, Black
Hops: Citra, Columbus, Warrior
IBU: Lots
ABV: 7.8%


Project Hoppiness

Greenport Harbor Brewing Company’s project to explore the world of humulus lupulus, the common hop. An ever changing variety of hop-forward ales will excite your taste buds with new experiences, none quite like the last, bringing forth happiness through hoppiness.

Greenport Harbor also relaunched their website over the weekend, equipped with merchandise, forthcoming events and more.
