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

kevinator (888) - The Colony, Texas, USA - MAY 16, 2014
Good for the style. Strong hoppy aroma that leaned to the side of pine. Dark brown color that gave it a stout-like essence. The palate was a little too watery for my liking. Carbonation was good. Flavors of hop bitterness up front followed by a caramel and roasted malt character helped to balance it. Good effort and by far not as good as their West Coast IPA.
