Carton Brewing to release Epitome Black IPA on Black Friday 3pm

Posted on Updated on

Epitome Release

Epitome will be released in the tasting room on November 29, 2013 at 3pm. Look for it in places that get it on Black Friday.

Imperial Black Ale
ABV: 10.3% | IBU: 100 | SRM: 42

We don’t have many rules at Carton Brewing, and those we have we made up for ourselves. In general, though, we strive for drinkability through balance and harmonization of flavors. But even self-imposed  rules are meant to be broken. With Epitome we decided to embrace the teenage metalhead in each of us and get discordant with a seriously hoppy, high gravity, black ale. The only notions accepted were to make it bigger, bolder, hotter & faster. A beast. The ABV had to push past 10, the black had to be “none more,” and the hops had to be American and piled on like a double bass drum kicking faster and harder. Drink Epitome because things worth doing are worth over doing.
