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

onceblind (6378) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 13, 2013
Clear dark dark brown with a lovely aroma of herbal and grassy hops with dark sweet burnt caramel and roasty black malts. Flavor has some nice bitterness up front with some acidic pine and grapefruit, followed by some toastiness and roasted black malt. Sweet overall with a nice balancing resinous bitterness. Delightful.

Sampled on draft at Dadís Pub & Grub this beer poured a black color with a large foamy brown head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was bitter and somewhat harsh with a floral hop element. The flavor was bitter and floral with a rough fruity hop presence followed by anise and a touch of roasty malts. Medium length floral hop and anise finish. Medium body. Meh.

DrSilverworm (9441) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Pint on tap at Lackman for $7. Black body. Thin khaki head. Good, thicker lace. Bigger body. Light to medium strength smooth lightly soft carbonation. More dry finish. Big herbal kind of spicy hop flavor. Savory herbs like basil, maybe some thyme, some tobacco. Light roast. Moderate bitter taste, then a light sweet in the finish. Unusual black IPA... Not really any chocolate, much more herbal and spicy than most. But itís tasty and interesting
