Covert h'Ops

Old Bust Head

Black Ale – 7.5% ABV

At first glance, Covert h’Ops could easily be confused for our Russian Imperial Stout, Gold Cup. But, hidden behind the dark exterior are layers and layers of com- plex hops. Kettle additions of CTZ, Northern Brewer, and Cascade hops give Covert a strong bitterness, pine notes, and grapefruit tones, that contrast and compliment flavors of dark chocolate and roasted espresso coming from the malts. A generous dry-hopping of Mosaic and Cascade hops, at a rate of one half lb per bbl, lends Covert h’Ops a strong, and unexpected, tropical and floral hop aroma. Revealing layers of the unexpected, Covert h’Ops Black IPA is aptly named for the secret intelligence operators who used to occupy our brewery buildings.
