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.

Nice dark malts with pine hop flavor. The body presents a nice solid palate, minimal bitterness. Nice representative of a CDA Cascadian Dark Ale

Originally reviewed: 3/2/10. Poured into a pint glass. Pours a limitless black. No light gets through. A gorgeous tan head caps it off like the top of a milkshake. Excellent retention; leaves lots of sticky lace and webbing. This is a really pretty beer. Big powerful pine resin scents burst out to the nose. Citrus zest and some grass in there as well. Great smooth and creamy body. This one sits a little heavy. Very bitter at the onset with lots of hop presence. Sharp burnt toast on the backend. A little charring. I wasnít sure what to expect with this one, but I was pleasantly surprised. Great beer!

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.

Smells of hops and peat. Pours dark red/brown with a light head. Tastes very different than the smell, almost took me aback. Bitter coffee, mild hops, very pleasant aftertaste. The smell and the taste go along well together. It doesnít stand out in any real way but is just an all together well rounded beer that is not too dense but with a full flavor and scent that I think Iíll keep around for friends to enjoy.

Draft at HUB Portland, OR on 5 June 2013. Pours a very dark almost black with a lingering tan head. Great bitter citrus hop aroma. Full on hop bitterness rounded with burnt coffee and dark chocolate on the palate.

Slight maltiness in the aroma. The flavor is a dry pleasant bitterness. Creamy and rich in color.

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. Thatís not what we have though, hereís 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.
