COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pure Milwaukee Genius Series 4: Black IPA - We took all the stuff people love about IPA’s and gave this beer plenty of crystal and dark roasted malts. This dark coffee-colored beer pours a rocky, light tan head that leaves plenty of lacing on the glass. the hoppy pine and floral aromas ready your palate for an immediate bitterness. Instead, the sweet, caramely crystal malts blitz through, followed immediately by a sharp piney flavor from the Zeus and Cascade hops. The smooth body leaves a long lasting hoppy finish.

Bottle from mane liquor. Pours black with beige head that holds well. Nose shows typical black ipa aromas of pine, some hops and light fruity notes. Taste is quite thin and lacks oomph. Would have liked it to have some more bitterness etc. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

maneliquor (3127) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 23, 2013
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Looks and smells nice but the taste just lacks that bitterness I expect in a black IPA. Watery on the palate and doesn’t really have a finish

Draught samples@source during & after brewery tour 23viii13. Fruity (berries) malts, pine+bitter fruits hardcore hops, mid-bodied. Another enjoyable Black IPA, which seem to shine in balance.

Braudog (5752) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - JUL 14, 2013
Draft at Cafe Benelux in Milwaukee. This beer screams "porter" all around ... bland and ashy. It does deliver this differnet earthy hoppiness at the end, but here we go again with this "style" ... I don’t get it. Citric hops and porter characteristics don’t blend well in my palate. (#5152, 7/5/2013)

On tap at BeerDeLuxe. Well balanced. Aromas of nuts, coffee, hints of liquorice. Taste is sweet and bitter, with long length. Velvety, and medium bodied. Black, with a frothy head.
