Color marrone schiuma mediamente persistente. Al naso viene subito fuori la luppolatura ricca di oli essenziali tipica del Caskadian. Al palato esce fuori anche un pò di tostatura, sempre ottimamente schermata dal luppolo. Finale persistente e duraturo.

maeib (8664) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2013
Keg North Bar Leeds 12/11/13. A dark brown coloured beer with a white head and lace. A nice hoppy dark beer. Sweeter than our BIPAs with caramel and chocolate notes. Hops are good though for sure. Tasty and moreish with a nice body. A bit of a grassy edge. Lots of oranges. Liked this a lot although stylistically an inbetweener.

hawthorne00 (2410) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 13, 2014
Growler. Amber with a modest pale beige head. Aroma of grapefruit, toast, a hint of chocolate. Truly bittersweet - no separate sweetness and bitterness, but lingering grapefruit and pine after sticky breadcrust and a little chocolate depart. Chirpy and engaging.

HKdIPA (228) - HONG KONG - AUG 1, 2014
Bottle from Craftissimo at home. Dark dark amber pour with thick foamy head (doesn't look dark enough to be a black IPA). Aroma is appealingly hoppy - pine and Granny Smith apples with a bit of breadiness too. Palate is light and smooth (like all Borgo beers I've had, though this one not as smoothly carbonated). Assertive hops in the taste - sharp and crisp but enough malts to round out the taste nicely. A of bit sour apple, pine, and bitterness. The most "American" of the Borgo beers I've had I think. Really good.

On tap at Bir & Fud. Actually not that black! Clear deep amber beer. Little off white head. Strong Nelson Sauvin cats piss nose. Softish palate. Piney sweetish Nelson with a little with a little mixed fruit. Blackcurrant. An interesting take on the style.

KyotoLefty (6334) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 15, 2012
Draught at Open Baladin Roma. Dark brown with orange tints and a high, fine head that went quick to lace. Huge catpiss and citrus nose with light chocolate and caramel, minerals and spice. Flavor of catpiss and chocolate, light coffee. Clean, full, and nice.

Skinnyviking (6976) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 10, 2012
bottle. High credamy off-white head. Hazy dark brown body. Roasted barley malt chestnut caramel sweet aroma. Coffee roasted malt liquorice flavor with a low carbonation and a long bitter aftertaste.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 11, 2012
Bottle 75 cl. Pours an almost clear dark orangey brown with a small, off-white head. Lovely citrus aroma with a little sweet roast. Medium body, subtle roast, some licorice and again pleasant. Finishes dry. Very pleasant. 110512
