Thanks to thirdeye11 for sharing this beer. The beer pours a dark brownish-red color with a white head. The aroma is strong resiny hops with some roasted malt. The flavor is resiny hops with just the lightest amount of roasted malt. Still, this beer is all about the hops. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

(22oz bottle) deep brown with light cream head. Nose of juicy citrus, and pumpernickel bread. Taste of grapefruit, bread, with a light body.

Strykzone (5526) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUN 27, 2012
Bottle from Hayduke. We enjoyed a bottle together via facebook chat. This beer was cola appearing. Clear dark red brown. A big beige head never faded completely and left blotches of lacing. A nose that is full of roasted malts and citrus hops. This is a style that I have not enjoyed in the past due to the black licorice that all of them seem to favor. This one avoids that. It offered roasted and chocolate malt which were both nice. Citrus hops had nice bitterness and some back end fruit. Definitely an improvement over other black IPAs.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - SEP 9, 2010
Bottle: Black color with a light head. The nose is grassy and hoppy with a dry roasted malt note. The flavor shows more roasted malts than hops and it seems a little disconnected. Interesting though, the black IPAs are proving not to be so easy to brew.

#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.

reebtogi (4808) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 28, 2011
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.

Draught @ Hopworks, Portland, OR

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

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.
