O’Connor Great Dismal Black IPA 6P – $11.49
O’Connor Brewing Company is nestled in the military industrial sprawl-plex of Norfolk. Still, they value nature just as much as an Aftonite who doesn’t want a potentially leaky fuel pipeline run through it. That’s why O’Connor has named their Black IPA after the Dismal Swamp Canal Wildlife Refuge that was once part of the Intracoastal Waterway. Balance is the thing for any ecosystem and Black IPA. The Great Dismal pairs a dark berry maltiness with a discreet bitterness that lingers like the cry of a swamp bird.
