image sourced from Midnight Sun Brewing's website For many of us winter has officially started with the recent snow. And while many of the 'Winter' releases are resting on the shelf getting older, we couldn’t pass up the chance to mention the pending release (around February) of XXX Black Double India Pale Ale.

Brewery Description

8.5 % Alcohol By Volume

87 International Bittering Units (IBUs)

Originally brewed in 2009 to celebrate Specialty Imports’ 30th Anniversary, XXX Black Double IPA is now produced each winter. XXX offers bold, American hop character — comfortably cloaked in dark, luxurious malt. This exciting “winter warmer” will take the chill right out of your bones. Curl up with this session-beer-meets-nightcap.

Sometimes XXX just means 30.

In 2009, to commemorate the 30th anniversary of Specialty Imports' specialty wine and beer import business, Midnight Sun Brewing Company brewed a very special beer--a black double IPA--to honor this Alaska company's long-term success. In 2010 this beer was added to MSBC's "seasonal double IPA" line-up.

Look for XXX Black Double India Pale Ale to be featured anywhere you find Midnight Sun's annual beers, like Arctic Rhino Coffee Porter or Monk's Mistress Belgian-style Special Dark Ale.
