Pint at brewpub. Pours darn black. Itís basically the same shade as their stout. Delightfully hoppy aroma on this one. Plenty of grapefruit and dank herbs make this smell super nice. Hops transfer well to the flavor. Grapefruit flavors clash well with chocolaty malts. Great American style ale.

DuffMan (7028) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 18, 2010
Sampled (draught) at the SpringBeerFest in Portland. Deep walnut brown, amber highlights. Aroma of resin, capsicum, burnt malts. Palate equally showcases earthy roast and leafy bitter hops. An excellently balanced black IPA with heaps of character that really SHOWS its blackness. I find many black IPAs hide the dark malts under a boatload of hops, but this one lets everything shine through beautifully. A standout.
