Oh black IPA you crazy conflicting style. As dark as sin but fruity and fragrant in stark contradiction to its appearance. Black IPA is a style that I have often written gives me the willies, but if I have to grow accustomed to it, then this is a good, if mild exemplar. Typical West Coast hop aromas of spruce and grassiness with flavours of the same. Quenching and light to medium bodied, it was an easy pint to drink with a faintly piquant bitterness. I must offer a quick thanks to Brian Eerwriter for shouting me this pint on his home turf.

On tap at the Fork & Brewer. A clear dark mahogany ale with a very durable, creamy, beige head. Excellent lacing. Aroma: NZ hops with bready malts. Flavor: Strong, with both dark roasted grains and earthy/herbal/spicy NZ hops. Notes of spruce, citrus and bready malts. Hoppy, hoppy, hoppy. Medium bitter. O: a decent version of this challenging style.

The head is good, the body black-red. It smells maltaromatic, darkmalty, hoppy, bitter, aromatic. The taste is bitter hoppy, darkmalty, bit roasty, sweet, bit coffee-bitter. Good!
