#3000 for me. 3-1-11
This is one of the tastiest CDA or beers out there. Over the years I have talked beer and have come up with some of my all time favs. This is one of the all times for me.
Dark brown in color, clear with a thin tan head. Nice dark malt and hops aroma. Lots of good Malt and caramel and chocolate malts mixed with the big hops. HUB does one kiss ass beer here. This will go down as one of the best. Great finish it is hard not to order another. A must for any CDA fan.

Hophazard (193) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 28, 2011
Piney hop aroma. Deep brown with faint off-white head. Pitchy, resinous hops. Roasted malt appears in the background. Medium bodies with a gentle finish. Interesting approach with formidable hops providing the majority of the flavor.

Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours very dark brown with a 3 finger creamy tan head. The aroma is hop. Seems rather resin. Med plus body. Flavor is some sweet charred caramel with pine/citrus/floral/godonlyknows hop. Itís very bitter. Much more charred than other BIPAs. I can imagine a touch of coffee. The nose is great. The taste is great. It has much more oomph than 6.5% would suggest. A really great ale.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - FEB 19, 2011
Pours not really black but more dark brown with ruby edges. Aroma of burnt malt, hops. taste is nice, it has a lot of bitterness, some hop related, some burnt or ash flavor. Medium body, lots of carbonation but itís not prickly.

after4ever (5928) - Brier, Washington, USA - FEB 6, 2011
Draft at the Issaquah Brewhouse. Pours jet black with a loose tan head. Big sweet pine and candied orange nose...sugars coming very much from the hops here but still presenting an overall effect of sweetness with very little pith or bitterness present. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Roasty toasty mid-palate with lots of sweet hop oil above that, washing out into a candied fruit finish. Has to be the sweetest black ipa Iíve tried. Pleasant, but far from the expected dryness, roastiness, and bitterness.

CheersMate (1299) - Fremont (Seattle), Washington, USA - FEB 4, 2011
22 oz. bottle from Whole Foods in Bellevue. Nice dark brown, almost black, appearance. This beer has a thin, and yet, wispy head. A little roast is complimented by a nice orange citrus hop aroma. The aroma is quite pungent, and nice. Very roasted at first, but the roast is soon dominated by the hop flavor, which actually has a pine taste, instead of a citrus taste. The beer is rather dry, and the roast mixes well with the aforementioned hop flavor. This has a bit of a milky flavor, as well. This is pretty good, and has a nice lingering bitterness, which pleases me.

TheRealMGD (549) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - JAN 27, 2011
Tap @ Noble Fir. Dark ruby brown clear pour with a short white head leaving a coarse lace. Nose predicts the body: fresh citrus and pine hops and dark-roasted malt. Medium, moderately carbonated body has flavors of pine, burnt caramel, slight baker’s chocolate and a nice cane sugar sweetness emerges as the ale warms. Secession finishes with a slight citrus tartness and a long coffee and pine bitterness. A solid black IPA from an exceptional organic craft brewer.

BillKismet (3291) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 26, 2011
Sasparilla black body with browned froth head. Lovely merging of carafa roast and cascade hops. Clean, de-bittered roast presence with rolling waves of floral cascade goodness and chocolate undertones. The finish is also Cascade juicy bitterness.

3fourths (7797) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 23, 2011
draft. deep brown with cola colored edges and a tan head. up front itís licorice astringent black patent and roast with cheesecloth yeast / hop character... so it has the bitterness of the roasts grains with an oily soy sauce flavor, and a terribly thinning and acidic / fizzy texture. weak malt structre throughout, and lacks pretty much any aromatic hop character expected in IPA.

trevor211 (1298) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 22, 2011
Pours darker than their stout. Nice, interesting citrus/pine hop aroma, matched in the flavor, which adds some roastiness. Nice - best on their taplist aside from the IPA.
