A quiet Sunday evening here as people shelter from the storm raging outside.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Northern Alchemy - Blood Orange Black IPA4.50ExcellentA Black IPA with Amarillo hops, presumably giving an orange flavour. Then loads of added orange juice. Just on the beer side of the beer/fruit juice divide.
