COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Black Magic IPA, as the name implies, is going to have the look of a stout and the taste of a regular IPA. It will be dry-hopped with Chinook only yielding a piney, resinous, and lingering bitterness. We will update the post with the ABV when it is done fermenting. Check back to find out!

Bomber courtesy of Nbutler11 at the Phoenix Black Friday tasting. Thanks Nick! Pours dark reddish brown with a half finger tan head. The nose is grapefruit, orange peel, roasted malt and pine. The taste is cocoa, citrus hops and resin in the finish. Medium mouthfeel. Very good Black IPA.

On tap at FS. Pours black with a tan head. Lots of citrus, grapefruit, and floral hops in the nose with some of the roasted malts coming through. The hops really pop in the flavor, medium bitterness fresh citrus and grapefruit. The roast has a slight bitterness that isn’t lost or overdone. Solid IPA, its hard to drink this one slow.

Very dark brown pour with minimal tan head. Nice roasty nose. Some obvious roasted notes up-front, maybe a touch of smoke, even. Then the hop bite comes up from behind...pine and grapefruit. Medium craemy texture...very easy drinking. This should sell out quickly, now that the weather has turned a bit chilly. Very good work!

Another Flossmoor hookup from Adam, thanks again. Pours dark, dark brown in the glass with only the faintest hints of light coming through the edges with a big thick off-white head that recedes fairly slowly and leaves good lacing. The aroma is dominated by hops, some citrus in the form of oranges and pineapple, and a little bit of floral pine and grass as well. There are some sweet dark malts underneath. The taste is more floral than the aroma with an initial pine resin bitterness that gives way to the highly toasted black malts in the background with some bakers chocolate coming out as well. The finish brings back the hop and espresso-like bitterness which lingers for a while after each sip. The mouthfeel is medium bodied but almost seems a little thin with good carbonation and dry and bitter in the finish. This is a solid brew that is a little lacking in body for my liking but is pretty drinkable and offers lots of different flavors all together. Interesting and tasty.

Dark dark brown small off white head. Aroma has light hops and some faint roast. Flavor is more hoppy than anything else. Drinkable but bitterness lingers a bit.

UPDATED: NOV 28, 2009 Tap at the pub. Black with some light escaping from the edges. Nice citrus nose with plrenty of black malt roast. Very bitter and way dry. Tasty for sure.

Bottle courtesy of fishingnet. Pours a dark cola brown with thin tan head. Aroma is big bouquet of hops, citrus, grapefruit, spice, pine, malt. Flavor is much of the same--lots of floral hoppiness. Generally medium body with a floral hop finish.

pours a red brown. Nose is big roasted malt and floral hops, big resiney pine, hints of alcohol and fruit esters peeking out behind the roasted barely. Flavor is charred grains, big floral and some citrus flavors, hints of fruit.

dark brown color, fluffy off white head, some lace. nose is citric hops, but also roasty maliness. flavor was also hoppy, with some earthy and sweety malt and a hint of roastiness. medium bodied, bitter finish. the hint of sweetness was almost fruity and slightly off-putting to me. but still well worth the guzzle. sampled on tap at brewpub (my notes say on tuesday nov 3, 2009...i am a bit behind on my ratings evidently)..
