Tied House Menage a Singe Black IPA

Type: Dark IPA
Origin: San Jose, California
Price: $4.50 per 22 oz

I don't really understand the naming of this beer, but I don't think it really matters. I think they just wanted to put 3 monkeys on the bottle. And maybe they noticed that monkeys are brown and this beer is brown. Astute observation guys. Anyways, this is a very nicely balanced IPA with some dark berry notes popping out from behind the bitterness. There is quite a bit of nutty maltyness as well, almost as if this is a mix between a brown ale and an IPA. It is definitely not bad, although I wish the pricing was more in line with their other beers, in the $2-3 range.
