Thomas Creek Brewing, Chocolate Orange IPA, Review 220

Crisp and citrusy, this India Pale Ale derives its atypical dark copper brown color from malted chocolate wheat.  Heavily hopped, the Chocolate Orange IPA’s bitterness blends with the dark chocolate flavors of the cocoa nibs added during fermentation.  Those subtle chocolate notes rest behind a floral bouquet, enhanced by additions of bitter orange peel and dry hopping with Citra.
