Flaska från Rosses i Torrades, Barcelona. Så här, just så här vill jag ha min BIPA. Tropiska frukter och lakrits i doften. Går att sitta länge och bara inandas. I smaken hittas citron, grape, soja, lakrits samt en nötig ton. Fyllig kropp, len smak. Riktigt, riktigt bra!

Sigmund (4950) - Tau, NORWAY - OCT 1, 2013
500 ml bottle conditioned, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 7.5%. Black colour, moderate tan head. Lovely aroma of citrussy hops, on a background of moderately roasted malts, hints of dark chocolate. The medium dry flavour has again citrussy hops, blended with distinct roasted malts, notes of strong coffee, dark bitter chocolate and resin. The contradictory "Black IPA" style is beginning to grow on me, and this one is a fine specimen.

Marstonlad (395) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 23, 2013
Bottle at Gallows Bird, Espoo. Pours black with a little white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma has a combination of hops and malts, espresso-like elements and dark chocolate feature alongside with piny hoppiness. Taste is very similar with strong stouts, as it?s more malty than hoppy. Maltiness brings flavours like coffee, chocolate and licorice with some soy sauce to the fore with hoppy bitterness balancing in the finish. Palate is full and creamy with a smooth, low to average carbonation. I really enjoyed this: a rich, long and interesting taste.

Fra flaske på Cardinaltreff sep-13: definitivt friskere og mer sympatisk enn Hardknott Code Black (også en svart bleking). Syrlig og litt medisinal, men allikevel god medisin. Interessant blanding av sødme, syrlighet og mørk bitterhet. God fylde, men stilarten (som språklig er en selvmotsigelse, a contradiction of terms ville en engelskmann sagt) er foreløpig ingen favoritt hos meg.

Almost black with a creamy big head, leaves lacing. Aroma is fruity hops, peach, flowery, pine, caramel and a touch of roast. Medium full body, medium carbonation. Taste is roasted malts and fruity hops, coffee, caramel. Finish a bit short, but good anyways. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

4oz pour at Max’s Hop Fest 2013. Pours a translucent, mahogany with some light lacing head. Nose is nice, piney, floral, cracker, bread crust. Flavor is malty, brown sugar, cracker, pine, lemon, soap. Astringent finish. Good example of the style.

Very enjoyable. Suprising too. This was far less heavy than I imagined. Starts with a strong floral/grassy aroma, then the flavour is mildly grapefruit with some hint of peachy fruit, then a strong bitter streak, followed by a rounded biscuit ending. Powerful. Enjoyable.
