Heeding a chorus of voices crying for a dark roasty thing with lots of west coast hops and a higher ABV, we summoned Netherworld from the chaotic flipside of the brewhouse where hybrid is the norm and nothing is ordinary. Hovering just this side of evil, in the right hands, our ęCascadian Dark AleĽ is bizarrely nice with its own entrancing mojo. However, watch out for those who refuse to see the darkness.

Iíve been eager to try a Black IPA since I heard about them in a brew magazine. Exactly as Iíd hoped. WOW citrus hops bold and out there at the front, the dark chocolaty beer flavour warming the middle, and a finish of drying hops on the tongue. It is a pretty cutting edge beer for Ontario Craft breweries, and I will seek out more of this in the future.

Pours black with a thin beige head out of a 341ml bottle from the LCBO. dark and chocolate malts. somewhat hoppy but not overwhelming. Not very bitter. Not much to compare this too but itís pretty awesome. Either a great beer or I really enjoy this style.

Pours an clear dark brown with a huge frothy brown head with tons of lace. Aroma of citrus hops, grapefruit, caramel, slight roast malt and toasted cereal. Taste is roasted malts, chocolate, grapefruit and a nice citrus hop bitterness on the finish. One of my favorite black ipa?s out there.

Served in snifter at cellar temp (~10-15mins out of fridge). I can immediately see why this opaque black-bodied beer is called Netherworld - Hades lets more light in. Head was a coffee beige colour and an aroma of mocha and beer wafted from the glass with the first sip. Netherworld sports a soft carbonation, creamy texture and a strong, rounded finish. Flavours of roasted coffee and sweet light chocolate malt work spectacularly with the bitter tone set by the hops.

bottle. Poured opaque dark ruby with a creamy beige head. A super hoppy aroma. Full flavoured hoppy brew. Roasty caramel malts, sweet dark fruit, grapefruit citrus notes. Medium-high bitterness start to finish. My first black IPA and Iím blown away.

Flying Monkeys Netherworld CDA is a very dim reddish brown beer with a cappuccino colored head thatís foamy and bubbly. It leaves excellent lace on the glass. It has a heavy citrus aroma with a good dose of dark roast coffee. Itís medium-by-light bodied, foamy and smooth. The crunchy, astringent finish leaves the mouth dry. The flavor is a good dose of citrus bitterness. Dark, roasted tones rumble underneath. Bitter grapefruit and tangerine last well after the swallow. This is a bold and flavorful beer thatís fun to drink, but too tongue crushing to be a session ale.

Surprised Netherworld isnít rated higher... this beer strikes a great balance. Black IPAs can often feel unbalanced, with a little too much black bitterness. This one is just a nice strong hop content in the front with a richness in the back. I can smell the douglas firs while drinking this. Head and lacing are great. This is how great beers are made. Highly recommended.

Love the style. Pours (a little pale) brown with a medium head. Aroma is filled with Cascade hops, floral, citrusy. Light to medium body - Was hoping a fuller body for a BIPA. Very good beer!

Very dark pour. Beige head. Great hop aroma. Citrus, pine, mild smoke. Great drinking beer, if a little surprising. Intense hop flavour gives way to a roasted core, hints of lemon and other fruits. A real surprise, kick in the pants kind of beer at first but otherwise totally brilliant. Smooth back end, a "canít believe I just had three of those" type of beer.

I love hoppy dark beers, and this one is fabulous. Would buy again in a second.
