DuffMan (7999) - 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.

A Cascadian Dark Ale...wait, no, an IBA thanks to thirdeye11. Pours with a deep brown body and a tan head. Aroma of hops, citrus, alcohol, pine, and light dark roast. Taste is spicy, hoppy, bitter and pine. Creamy mouthfeel, light carbonation.

Nena (963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 28, 2010
Draft, Brouwer’s. Poured black with a thin beige head. Aroma is grassy and earthy hops primarily. Flavor is lightly toasty malt with more of the grassy, earthy hop character. There’s also a bit of a lemon peel character, put mostly the hops are more on the herbal side. Very dry and bitter on the finish.

cmonster (998) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 21, 2010
Bomber served in a tulip. Beautiful dense cola pour topped by a large frothy light brown head. Great retention and lacing. Piney and floral hop aroma along with some chocolate malt. Roasty bitter sweet flavor. Medium body, good carbonation, creamy mouthfeel and a charred, bitter finish with sticky resin that lasts.

very dark with a white head and an incredible floral hop aroma. Pretty hoppy taste but a little lacking in the malt finish. pretty good though

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - AUG 20, 2009
Tap at Bier Stein. Poured out a cola brown with a light tan head. Aroma of earthy hops and some hefty caramel malts. Flavor pretty much the same, has a hefty malt finish. I don’t know that I’d call this an IPA, but am not 100% sure where I’d categorize it. Either way it was a decent enough beer.

First off, the name really doesn’t work for me. Cola colored. Has a bit of an oil smell. Perhaps too much of one type of hops? Hoppy and bready mixture.
