(San Diego, CA) – Karl Strauss Brewing announced on Facebook this past week that Blackball Belgian IPA is slated to return on August 1st. The beer debuted in bottles last April but is being moved to the third quarter slot in the brewery’s Coastal Reserve Series for 2012. Some info from last year’s press release below…
This Belgian IPA started as a Double IPA recipe and fermented with a Belgian yeast strain to impart a distinctive fruity and peppery character. In addition to using the spicy Belgian yeast, Blackball Belgian IPA was brewed with a hefty dose of coriander and Curacao, giving the beer an added layer of complexity. The 8.5% ABV brew was then dry-hopped with a blend of Cascade and New Zealand hops creating a tropical aroma and citrus hop bitterness that lingers through its crisp, dry finish.
