BEER HAIKU # 90 Adroit Theory Scorpion Black IPA


Adroit Theory is a tiny brewery in Virginia but their aesthetic is VERY Metal. Their labels and beer names are both METAL. They’ve collaborated with New Zealand brewer 666 – How Metal is that? This week’s new release at Hashigo Zake Cult Beer Bar (only slightly metal) is a substantial Black IPA (pretty Metal) called Scorpion (really, really Metal especially if you’re German).

Adroit Theory Scorpion Black IPA (8.1% ABV)

Smoky, tenebrous
