Bottle thanks to olympuszymurgus!Transparent dark brown, red highlights. Dank mint, earthy nose of light flour. Flavor is more malt up front, light green bitterness and pine with something that reminds me of cat litter. Very salty, piney earth finish. Light profile throughout, nothing dominates the other elements, but then again there isnít much here.

hayduke (3468) - Eureka, California, USA - JUL 2, 2012
Shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. Poured a very dark brown tending toward black with big foamy tan head. The nose is citrus and floral hops, Medium to full in body with a resin mouthfeel. The flavor is well roasted malts with a big hop set of flavors including pine, citrus, and flowers. There is a nice bitterness that carries over into the finish. To me this sort of defines what a black IPA should do with a great balance between the roasted malts and hops. Very nice.

I fell in love with this beer after the first sip. And I donít 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 Iíve ever had.

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.

bottle thanks to thirdeye11. Pours a dark brown/black with tan head. Aroma is very hoppy and kinda over powers the dark roasted notes. Flavor isnít much different, has some sharp pine. Medium body with medium-high carbonation. Overall, not all that bad.
