Negro Nitron Black IPA Brewed by San Tan Brewing in Chandler, AZ
Nitron Black IPA is Arizona’s first Nitrogenated Black I.P.A.!
Midnight Wheat gives this beer its deep garnet black hue without the
sharp burnt flavor of traditional roasted malts. Negro Nitron is a
clean, crisp & hoppy Black IPA. Nitrogen gives this beer a soft
velvety mouth feel & the bold American hops on center stage. Malt:
American 2-Row, Caramel 80, White Wheat, Midnight Wheat, Munich, and
Victory. Hops: Summit, Columbus, Cascade. ABV: 7.3%. IBUs: 85.
Beer Review from Beer Advocate
Appearance - Nitro is always such a pretty pour, this one comes out mocha
froth and settles into a dark ruby body with a nice creamy brown head. It is
a little less substantial than a stout pour, but styles taken into account
this is one of the best looking pours ive seen this year.
Aroma - A little sweet malt, some bready aromas and toasted grains. Feels a
little run-of-the-mill. The hop character promoted for this one is lacking
Taste - Heavy on the maltiness, everything else seems like an afterthought.
Its one note but it is a good one.
Mouthfell - Velvety smooth and creamy, balanced finish and a real ABV
sleeper. Best quality of this offering IMO.
