My favorite black IPA (besides the ones Iíve brewed myself). Hopworks doesnít go overboard with roasty flavors, nor to they make a ful-bodied caramelly mess like many other black IPAís Iíve had. This one hits the right balance of hops, malt, and roast. Iíve had this at Hopworks, though, and never from a bottle, so I canít say how it ages.

#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.

Gooney (388) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 26, 2011
On tap at Big Alís - Very floral and citrus hops scent. Dark pour with a nice white head. Tastes like roasted malt with a great hops balance. I donít have anything smart to say about this. I just really, really like it.

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.

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.

andrewturba (950) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 18, 2012
Pours a very dark brown with some sediment on the bottom possibly hops, big light brown head that stays and laces the glass really nicely. Aromas of roasted malt, pine, grassy. Flavours of chocolate/roasted malts, pine to grapefruit to grassy transition with just the right amount of medium bitterness that doesnít over stay its welcome.

My favorite beer at NAOBF í09. Its dark, superbly hopped into an earthy drink. good ABV and the resin qualtiy just lasts. When I can taste the beer in my nose, then its a good one.

DuffMan (6534) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 18, 2010
Sampled (draught) at the SpringBeerFest in Portland. Deep walnut brown, amber highlights. Aroma of resin, capsicum, burnt malts. Palate equally showcases earthy roast and leafy bitter hops. An excellently balanced black IPA with heaps of character that really SHOWS its blackness. I find many black IPAs hide the dark malts under a boatload of hops, but this one lets everything shine through beautifully. A standout.
