fiulijn (14294) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 6, 2012
Bottle from Brewery Creek, Vancouver
Black color, with medium sized beige head. Very nice aroma of coffee, some roasted malt, light dust and hops. Good body structure, dark chocolate and coffee flavor, quite dry mouthfeel, with a strong bitterness; it ends with loads of roasted malts, and hidden hop resins, but never ashy. Very good.

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 12, 2014
light brown, slight lime nose with toast and woody hop character. Earthy front, sweet, has some mellow haselnuss character, with toasted almonds, bitter chocolate. Sweeter interpretation, leaning towards the old India brown idea.

bhensonb (10696) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 26, 2011
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. It’s 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.

Sammy (8354) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 5, 2011
UPDATED: JUL 8, 2012 Somewhat disapointing for the style, as a beer. Fresh bottle from Zyn in Calgary. Black body, high IBU, more roastiness in he flavour. Lacey Lots of really roasty as in burnt parts. Hops and citrus in finish. Lace rings. Grows on me, but I am just OK on it.

Tap at Goodlife, Bend, 23/05/13. Light black with a thin tan head. Nose is hops, cocoa, light coffee, pine. Taste comprises hops, pine, biscuit, grapefruit. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, dryish in the finish. Ok BIPA.

3fourths (7859) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 23, 2011
draft. deep brown with cola colored edges and a tan head. up front it’s 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.

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.
