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

Re-he-Healy loved the hop combo used here, as well as the Carmel malt atop the black roasted and chocolate. Hop leaning, which is just fine by me, and the most grapefruity citric yummy black ipa I’ve tried in some time."

blankboy (6589) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 29, 2014
[Bottle (660ml)] Pours a very dark amber-brown with a large lasting frothy beige head and some lacing on the glass. Aroma is your standard, but solid, Black IPA: Toasted malt and leafy hops along with a hint of coffee -- simple but nice. Flavour’s the same, toasted malt and leafy hops along with a semi-long moderate bitter finish. Average to medium bodied. Well done and enjoyable.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUN 7, 2014
Bottle:   Moderate Black IPA.   Very soft roast, moreso a charred like IPA.   Campfire from start to finish.   Otherwise very pithy.   A little dry, could use a touch of sweetness.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   A bit stale on the finish.   Seems very pedestrian... but nothing really off.

PorterPounder (6227) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 27, 2014
Tallahassee, Fl. – New Leaf Market – 22 oz. bomber. Deep dark as coal pour with a thick sticky mocha colored head. Aroma has some eggy accents, a brief touch of spruce. Flavor is full bodied and delicious. Nice bittersweet citrusy accents, a touch of licorice, some minty rye accents, some nuttiness. Thick, rich mouthfeel. Another solid entrant from Green Flash.
