#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.

Tap from Organic Brewers Fest... Poured deep brown with an off-white head. Hoppy, wood-like aroma. A little acidic but a nice hoppy tone. A little bit of toasty malts. Sweet, bread-like finish.

650ml bottle pours reddish brown in color with a finger and a half of light beige head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is dark roasted malts with an explosion of citrusy hops. Taste is a little more subdued with dark roasted malt sweetness and citrusy hop bitterness with a bit of smokiness. This is a really nice IPA with some decent body and carbonation leaving a decent impression on the taste buds.

On tap at the brewpub - Pours fairly dark with a tan head. The aroma has roasted malt and tropical hops. The body is fairly full with soft carbonation. The flavor begins with roast, coffee, pine and tropical fruits. The finish has some citrus and the roast is not as obvious. Good black IPA.

Bottle thanks to thirdeye11. The smell is malts, hops, more malts, roasty, and slight chocolate. The look is brown, clear, not much head. The taste is hops, slight malts, more fruits.

Draught @ Hopworks, Portland, OR

Roasty, nutty and grassy black IPA. A bit too much on the stouty side though.

I fell in love with this beer after the first sip. And I don’t say that often. I just found it that good. It had an enticing nose filled with chocolate and citrusy hops. Then a great mouthfeel and a dryish finish. Huge pine bursts in the mouth right off the bat. A sappy sweetness quickly morphs into an explosive bouquet of hop aromas (pine trees, flowers, wild grasses and mint). Like fresh herbs coated in a resinous syrup. Chocolate and dark grains also take hold of your olfactories. Man, what a tasty, fresh-tasting Cascadian Dark Ale. Easily one of the best I’ve ever had.

22 oz. bomber courtesy of a trade with DA. Pours very dark brown, just about black, with a moderate tan head that lasted until mid-glass and left partial lace. Very pleasant aroma of fruity grapefruit along with some very mild malt. The flavor is most definitely tilted towards the hops with strong pine and grapefruit bitterness. Given the darkness of the beer, I thought there would be more of a roasted malt backbone, but the malt is very subdued. Moderate-strong bitterness at the finish. Medium bodied. One for the hopheads.

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.
