COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A 7.1% black IPA brewed by our shareholders. Boasting 80 IBUs, we double dry hopped the beer with mountains of Amarillo, Columbus, Chinook, Cascade and Centennial hops. After dry hopping we wanted to add a little more depth and another layer of complexity to the beer so we aged it on toasted oak chips for a further 2 weeks.

On keg at the BrewDog Bar, Edinburgh. A black beer with a lacy tan head. Fruity, hoppy nose, quite sweet with roasted malt also. Passionfruit and mango hop flavours are balanced nicely with the roasted malt, toast and bitter chocolate malt character. Nicely bitter with a floral, malty finish. Foamy mouth-feel. Very nice!

Keg at BrewDog Edinburgh. Black beer, big lacy beige head. Bitter coffee & fruit notes on the nose - mango, passionfruit, burnt toast. Almost sweet to start but deceptive - big coffee ground notes mixed with big citrus and a burnt toasty finish. Really interesting.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2012 Not so keen on this now..... Original rating done 24/07/11 (16/20) Bottle from BrewDog. Appearance - Black / very dark brown....2 finger frothy tan white head. Good, soft carbonation. Aroma - Strong piney and citrus hops, resin, roasted malts. Taste - Initially tangy, slighty sour pine hops, citrus, then backbone of roasted malts comes through with some plain chocolate, bit of coffee. Donít notice the oak chips. More emphasis on the hops than the stouty background in other Black IPAs. It gets better as you drink it. Palate - Again, tangy mouthfeel - the soft carbonation is just right with a juicy pine / citrus bitter hop long lingering finish (Re-rated from 4 to 3 - the palate Iím finding a little harsh) Overall - I personally prefer a bit more of a stout background and more grapefruity hop in a Black IPA. This is more of a Double IPA / Black IPA hybrid.

Keg@ the new Glasgow BrewDog bar. Mild treacle hop aroma. Almost black colour, not much head. Dry bitter coffee hop flavour. Bitter aftertaste. Not my favourite black IPA.

Scopey (5530) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 14, 2011
Keg at the Rake. It pours darkest brown with a thin beige head and moderate carbonation. The nose is black jack sweets, caramel, bubblegum, sweaty sock and resin. The taste is caramel, charcoal, chocolate, grass, hay, bubblegum sweetness, pine, molasses and salted liquorice, with a bitter-dry finish. Medium body and well hidden alcohol. A really flavoursome black IPA. Nice work Brewdog and Equity Punks.
