COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This American-style Black IPA is nearly jet black and perceived to have high hop bitterness, flavor and aroma with medium-high alcohol content, balanced with a medium body. The appearance may trick you into thinking you are about to enjoy a traditional stout beer when in fact your senses are about to be overwhelmed with our Black IPA. Juicy, fruity, floral, and pine from Pacific Northwest hops gives the beer a classic West Coast IPA hop character. The Black IPA is further characterized by a balanced and moderate degree of caramel malt and subdued dark roasted malt flavor and aroma. 7.2% ABV, 85 Hops used: Warrior, Citra, Cascade

7/10/14. Bomber. Pours black with a light mocha head that gives nice lacing. Nice hop nose but not overwhelming. Disappointing mouth with not much complexity. Mild roasty and hop notes but not real interesting. Classic West Coast profile but nothing that sets it apart. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Indra (2591) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JUL 6, 2014
22oz. bottle, best by 7/21/14, has been kept refrigerated, though. Aroma of lightly roasty, gently sweet malts and fruity, piney hops, with notes of milk chocolate, citrus, black bread and a touch of grapefruit, along with a certain pungency in the background. Clear deep, dark brown in color, nearly black, with a lasting, creamy, fine, beige head. Flavor profile is fairly complex and well-balanced, with suggestions of rich, dark, roasty and sweet malts, piney, citric and generously bitter hops, finishing with a blend of malt toast and mild tropical fruit, some floral tones and faint bubblegum underneath here as well. Smooth, full, resinous and lushly effervescent on the palate with a medium-full body. Very nicely put together, great example of the style.

obguthr (3636) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Draft: Strong grapefruit and tangerine aroma. If I closed my eyes I wouldn’t gues this is an IDA, save for a subtle soil note. Clear ruby black, thin tan head. Charcoal, grapefruit, and onion flavor. Brief appearanc of rosehips in the end that isn’t evident within the sronger malt notes. Good mix of hop and roast biterness. Light body, harshly fizzy. Pretty intense, not quaffable.

Weezel (163) - Florida, USA - JUL 3, 2014
Deep black with a slight bit of translucent character. Nose is wet hops, pine, and fruit. Smooth mouthfeel with a hint of roast up front that leads to good hoppy bite. Not overwhelming but has good depth.

Black murky pour with a few inches of healthy beige head. Strong pleasant nose of rye, tropical fruit punch mix is strong, pollen as well. Very soft carbonation, foamy but sticky mouthfeel, very clean finish. Amazing mix between hoppiness and dark malts. The ryeish malts are really rich but not too bitter, chocolatey malts come out as well. Hop profile is just enough pine with a very tropical emphasis. One of the best cascadian black ales I have had.

Lagerboy (1172) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 26, 2014
Bomber. Clear hueless darkest dark brown, creamy tan foam settles and mostly lasts. Coniferous floral citrus hoppy aroma. Dark roast taste, mild caramel, herbal pine hoppiness increases as it warms, some citrus. Average carbonation, medium bodied, well hopped. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

Shared bomber from Sicilianos to Hop Cat shakers. Very dark stout-like pour. Sweet aroma. Very balanced. Maybe a little more malt forward. Bitter after bite. Fantastic.
