Blackball Belgian IPA is a Belgian-inspired India Pale Ale with a robust West Coast hop profile. Belgian ale yeast, coriander, and Curacao lend a fruity and spicy character for an ale bolder than your average IPA. A blend of New Zealand and Cascade hops add a vibrant floral aroma and clean citrus hop bitterness that lingers through its crisp, dry finish.
What pairs with our not-so-typical IPA? Sliders that are anything but ordinary. The rich tuna and fennel spice enhance the beer’s Belgian yeast flavors. Between bites, Blackball’s hoppy finish cuts through the creamy goat cheese dressing and dynamite sauce. Perfect for lunch or to share – if you’re feeling generous!
