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 «Cascadian Dark Ale» is bizarrely nice with its own entrancing mojo. However, watch out for those who refuse to see the darkness.

I’ve been eager to try a Black IPA since I heard about them in a brew magazine. Exactly as I’d 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 it’s pretty awesome. Either a great beer or I really enjoy this style.

If I had to choose a nectar of the Gods, this would be it. The perfect blend of hops and dark, roasted grains. And as it warms the flavour take care dark turn for the better. Next to smashbomb this is my second favorite Beer. Awesome

huineman (591) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 26, 2015
Pours dark mahogany. Frothy tan head. Aroma is high: coffee, chicory, rucola, dandelion, toast... The classical citrus aroma of the Cascade hop seems obliterated. Silky and oily, with great bitterness and persistence. Aftertaste is dark chocolate.

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.

Nez: Chocolat, malt grillé, pin Bouche: Chocolat noir, café, pin, pamplemousse Attaque du café et du chocolat auxquels une touche de pamplemousse les rejoint pour laisser un mélange grillé/amertume en bouche avec une sécheresse sur la fin. Message de la capsule: In heaven there is no beer, so drink some now while you are here !

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 I’m blown away.

Flying Monkeys Netherworld CDA is a very dim reddish brown beer with a cappuccino colored head that’s foamy and bubbly. It leaves excellent lace on the glass. It has a heavy citrus aroma with a good dose of dark roast coffee. It’s 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 that’s fun to drink, but too tongue crushing to be a session ale.
