Gluten-Free Brewing Recipes: Hop Blocked Cascadian Dark Ale

Hop Blocked Cascadian Dark Ale

Imperial IPA

For all you brewers out there, here is a fantastic recipe! This Dark Ale exudes a pleasant piney smell with notes of spice. It is backed by tropical and dark stone fruit with a slight hint of roast and alcohol followed by smooth delicious bitterness. This beer goes down deceptively smooth for 8% ABV. This malt base would also make for an amazing stout, just drop the hops. Thank you to the creator of this recipe, Ereno Lewis. Happy Brewing!
