Light brown . Aroma of syrupy, fruity peaches. Flavour really gets hoppy and dry in the finish. Nice balance.

Didn’t really look like a black ipa, but the booklet at Borefts said Cascadian. Anyway, palate cleansing almost between all the violence of RIS and sours. Enjoyed this quite a bit.

Sampled @ Borefts Beer Festival 2016, Day 1. Hazy amber color, average sized white head. Smell and taste malts, some hops though not very pronounced, decently bitter. Tastes like a hoppy bitter to me. Not bad, but I wouldn’t call this a Black IPA.
