Goodnight Bodacious, a big and bold Double Black India Pale Ale is barreling towards a store near you. In the fall of 2015 your votes brought this beer back from the brink of the beer library abyss and placed it in one of the most coveted slots on our 2016 release schedule; one reserved annually for the Fan’s Choice Award winner.
Goodnight Bodacious (9% ABV – 90 IBU) has the maltiness of a barleywine and the hoppiness of an India Pale Ale. A rich, hoppiness dominates the aroma, with earthy and loamy scents. A medium body presents big, bitter black barley and roasted coffee flavors, with subtle compliments of dark fruit and green hops. Strong alcohol flavors and pleasant warming qualities become more noticeable as the beer approaches room temperature.
The beginning of daylight saving time may have brought the light back to our evenings, but Goodnight Bodacious is here to put a dark edge on your brew routine. Pick up a sixer of this revered and highly sought after specialty release at your favorite shop in Michigan beginning this week. And of course, be sure to keep an eye out for our 2017 Fan’s Choice vote this coming fall.
