Octopus Ink Black IPA

dark and hoppy.

Pike Octopus Ink Black IPA is a complex and intriguing beer, blending the hoppy flavor of your favorite IPA with the dark malt character of a rich stout. This seasonal beer is dry hopped not once, but twice with Citra, Amarillo and Simcoe hops, ensuring that plenty of citrus and piney hops shine through its smooth, round and chocolaty stout-like base. A portion of every Pike Octopus Ink Black IPA sale benefits Puget Soundkeeper Alliance, a local nonprofit protecting and preserving the waters of Puget Sound, which we call home.

    MORE ABOUT Octopus Ink Black IPA 

    Black IPA's, are also referred to as Cascadian Dark Ales, made a resurgence in the last decade.  We love how the beer brings together two styles; the dark and roasty flavors of a stout with the bright and bitter of an IPA's hops. Together these make for the perfect beer during the Northwest's long winter months. And don't worry, no octopi or their ink were used in the brewing of Octopus Ink Black IPA.
