Deschutes Brewery released Hop in the Dark Cascadian Dark Ale as part of its Bond Street Series. Hop in the Dark has classic IPA flavors and aromas because of the Cascade, Citra and Centennial hops as well as subtle coffee undertones derived from a blend of oats with dark Munich and crystal malts, the company says. The beer is 6.5 percent alcohol by volume and is available through September in mainly western markets. Hop in the Dark is sold in 22-ounce bottles for a suggested retail price of $5.
