3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

Mahogany with a thin white head. Some pine on the nose and other green aromatics. Medium bodied and showing good balance. Would like more complexity from the roasted malts. This shows more like a well made typical NW IPA.

Tap from Organic Brewers Fest... Poured deep brown with an off-white head. Hoppy, wood-like aroma. A little acidic but a nice hoppy tone. A little bit of toasty malts. Sweet, bread-like finish.

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.
