bottle, thanks to thirdeye11, dark with brown foam, hoppy roasty aromas, flavors of licorice and grapefruit, somehow this worked

Draught @ Hopworks, Portland, OR

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

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 15, 2010
Draught @ brewpub. Nice cloudy copper pour covered by a delicate light beige head. A strongly aromatic, very toasty, caramel laden ale with a fun roasty twist that adds a roasted grain side that would fit in a big brown ale. That’s not what we have though, here’s a hop-forward, punchy Portland ale. Strong and perfumey, fresh, citrusy, resinous hops bring plenty of bitterness to balance out the caramel. Very good stuff, whose freshness is deployed on the tongue and provides the most effective cleansing, effective carbonation that makes the whole ensemble very easy-going. Feels much better than the sum of its parts. In one phrase, this is what Lagunitas probably aims for under 40 different labels.

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.

In short: A ruby ale with restrained hopping. A few nice things, a few problems. Just ok.
How: Bottle 22oz. Consumed fresh a few weeks after receiving the bottle from mcberko, thanks a lot Matt
The look: Clear dark ruby body topped by a medium beige head with medium retention
In long: Nose is dank hops, spicy leafy hops as well as some fresh basic chinese tea notes. This is not a home bomb. Taste is low roastiness, a cold cup of coffee, soft red liquorice candy, light caramel, iced-tea, hard-candies, cold green tea, milk chocolate an some cocoa powder, chalk. Hopping is rather restrained. Leafy, tea-ish, tobacco, and a tiny bit piney. Bitterness level is below average for the style. This is not a hop bomb and nor is it malt heavy. Finish is annoyingly chalky. Overall I thought it was an ok beer but certainly not something I will seek-out again. Another bomber I drank alone while at home. They say that for an alcoholic it is hard to admit that you drink alone because it is a sign you are an alcoholic. But I don’t have a problem with that. It’s admitting that I drink alone because nobody loves me that I have a problem with.

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

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.

reebtogi (5735) - 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.

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.
