Your Daily Pint for Saturday, Jan. 4, 2014 is: SURF BLACK IPA STYLE ALE

What it is:
a roasty, hoppy 6.5%-ABV black IPA

What it tastes like:
Love dark malts? Can’t get enough hops? This beer’s for you. A wave of espresso crashes down on the tongue, accented by sunshiny grapefruit hop tones and earthy pine undercurrents. Like surf culture, this beach-born beer’s finish is also laid back with a gentle dry finish to cap off each sip.

About the brewery: The place was actually founded by surfers, and it shows. Not only is the brewery located just a few minutes from the beach, its tasting room’s decked out in surf culture gear. The brewery also donates 1-percent of total sales to the Surfrider Foundation.
