glennmastrange (2229) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - SEP 17, 2013
Bottle. Moderate to heavy bread, cereal and toasted for the malt, light to moderate pine for the hops, and dough for the yeast, with a hint of charcoal in the background. Head is small, light brown, with good lacing and good legs, and is mostly diminishing. Color is very dark brown. Flavor starts lightly sweet and acidic, then the long finish is lightly sweet and acidic, and moderately bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, oily with a carbonation between soft and lively. Although a little stronger in malt than hops, this Black IPA is otherwise perfect.

22 ounce bottle. Pours a deep black color.lookd like a stout or porter but taste is lighter and slightly hippie. Not as hoppy as I'd expect for a black iPa racer from bear republic but delicious nonetheless ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Jet black with a small tan head. Aroma malty,sweet,pine and coffee. Starts bitter and sweet followed by malt and back to bitter. One of the best black ipaís I have. If it has a flaw itís a weak head but everything else is great.
