Solid solid CDA right here. I love this style. Nice and roasty up front, backed with mild dark fruit flavors and sweeter malts. Mild hints of chocolate. And then of course, hopped up near the back! All the flavors blend perfectly. This is something Iíd love to see in 6erís...

Fatehunter (1762) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JUN 15, 2012
Into a pint glass. A dark copper color with a thin dirty white head that quickly faded to the edge of the glass. From a foot away I smelled pine and citrus. Closer up, pine and grapefruit with a mellower undertone of malt. Total IPA at first, citrus followed by a small roasted malt bomb, ending with a nice bitter. The malt sweetness was faintly present throughout. Light to medium body with a light but assertive carbonation. Outstanding CDA with almost perfect balance of maltiness and hops.

Big thanks to Kevin for sharing this one! A-pours a brownish liquid with red esges. a light tan colored head is tight with great lace. S-hint of roasted maltiness, dark chocolate, burnt coffee up front. herbal marijuanna hops come through big time. touch of tea leaves accompany. T-the taste brings a light roasted malt, hints of smokiness. the herbal hops take over, touch of tea leaves and earthy. a little thinned out in the back. M-extremely smooth on the palate, lighter body, low carbonation that falls off in the back and is a little thin in boddy. D-pretty tasty, falls off in the back, the nose was great but the taste falls a little short of that. very earthy and dank like.

Lagerboy (1607) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 19, 2012
Unclear darkest brown, creamy light brown head slowly fades. Pungent citrus grassy hops and smokey roasty malty aroma. Big bold bitter hop and burnt dark malt taste, some coffee and caramel. Average carbonation, full bodied, heavily hopped makes this brew DNFL (Definately Not For Lagerboys)

Reimer96 (1597) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 18, 2012
Pours a clear black with a brown hat that leaves sticky lace on the glass. Aroma of chocolate, pine & grass. Taste is citrus pine uo front then transitions into the dark chocate malts and finishes with a grassy bitterness. Excellent cascadian ale.

Bottle shared at the Foothills bottle share... thanks for setting it up, Mike! Nice balance in this one. Moderate chocolate sweetness with the right amount of pine sting. Really drinkable.

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - AUG 20, 2009
Tap at Bier Stein. Poured out a cola brown with a light tan head. Aroma of earthy hops and some hefty caramel malts. Flavor pretty much the same, has a hefty malt finish. I donít know that Iíd call this an IPA, but am not 100% sure where Iíd categorize it. Either way it was a decent enough beer.

Sarlacc83 (1485) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 6, 2014
On tap. A: Opaque root beer brown according to my wife. (black. Itís black.) with a thin, creme colored head. N: Hops display themselves through spruce, biscuit, cocoa, coffee, touch of black raspberries even. Mango and pineapple. Marshmallow. T: Bittersweet in equal proportions. M: Medium body bordering on thick. Lighter level if carbonation. O: A coniferous beast with a spritzing of sweets. Maybe too sweet, actually.
