4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at Pacific Coast Brewing Company, downtown Oakland.
Tastes of Coffee and malt with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Not sure what the goal of a black ipa is, but if it is to combine the roasted flavor of a stout and the tang of an ipa, then this one gets the job done. Even if that’s not the goal, this end result is quite good in this case.
