COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
There are two kinds. There is the DayTime kind, which is bright and welcoming and then there is the NightTime kind, which should never be confused with the DayTime. NightTime is dark and deep and may take you to unexpected places, places that the DayTime cannot. But then, the NightTime is not suited for ordinary life and ordinary tasks. In fact, NightTime may be the answer for that sort of thing, meaning that those sorts of things may never get done. Things take time in the NightTime, things slow down and you can puase (you have to, actually) and investigate carefully to find that level of objective detachment that is only possible under the spell of the NightTime. Seek the Day, but fear not the Night.

monkeychugg55 (861) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Dark brown pour with a small tan head. Nice lacing. The aroma is burnt bakers chocolate and resinous, piney, tangerine hops. The flavor goes from sweet, to fruity to roasty, then finishes bitter. Fairly well balanced, with some residual sweetness keep this from being too astringent or bitter.

maltman53 (311) - Corrales, New Mexico, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Bomber bottle: Pours midnight black. More black malts than hops on the nose. Chocolate, toffee, roasted aroma. This is a black IPA which I am not a big fan of the style. But this is a very pleasant beer with balance. Overall, it hides its 8.6% ABV very well and has a refreshing, bittering finish.

bmerz (703) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Draught at Bruekelen Bier Merchants. Pours with a nice head and some lace. Aroma is sweet beautifully west coast hopped with really well integrated roast. Flavor is the same. Feel is fairly lively with bitter mouth watering and roast taking over. Really love this BIPA. might by redeeming the style.

Decent tan head. Has a good hoppy/malty aroma typical of black IPAs but with an almost sour/roasty note (but not in a bad way). The same comes through in the taste. Pretty good black IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ours black with a brown head and aroma of sweet hops, citrus, and tropical fruits. Taste is bitter, hops, citrus, and tropical fruits with roasted malt and burnt notes underlying leading into the slight bitter, dry, roasty smooth finish. Great black IPA

BadAprilia1000 (260) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 26, 2014
Pours a very brownish black color with a thin head. Aromia is hops, grapefruit, floral, small pine, burning rubber. Taste is espresso, coffee beans, dark chocolate, citrus. Overall a very bitter but drinkable beer, not as malty as most of the style.

rumproasts (2863) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - AUG 26, 2014
bottle. near black with two finger head. i’m some what over the black ipa trend, but this is outstanding. rather light body for the style. definitely a malty ipa rather than a hoppy stout. awesome hops.

crazyvin (1933) - New York, USA - AUG 26, 2014
A black body with a tan head that had great lace and retention. Aroma was of roasted malts and mostly grapefruit hops there was enough pine hops and a bit of mango. Flavor had mostly grapefruit hops. Roasted malts seem restrained and the pine hops provided enough balance. Easy to drink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
