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.

12oz bottle pours a dark ruby brown with a tan head and little lacing. Aromas of roasty malt, coffee, toast, and a little rye. Flavor is mild bitter. Tasty.

Black pour from 12oz bottle at home. White head. Sweet floral and roasty coffee flavor, good hops. Malty and slightly nutty. Very enjoyable beer.

Bottle from Archive Beer Boutique June 2013. Not a huge fan, it. Was drinkable and pleasant enough but not enough flavour for me.

Bomber thanks to Matt. Pours a cloudy brown ruby with small beige head. The aroma is strong caramel malt and cascade hop. Medium mouthfeel with nice pine, resin, light bitterness. Good.

22 oz. bottle picked up surprisingly in Hilton Head in 2012 from notes. Pours a dark cola brown with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have pine resin and citrusy hops, grapefruit, roasted malts, chocolate, with a splash of black coffee. A bit thinner than the better black IPAs out there. Like the Rendezvous, an improvement over their regular stuff.

[Tap] Nearly black in color with a light brown colored head. Hoppy nose includes pine sap and some spruce. Darker malts, pine and chalky cocoa tastes culminate in a long and bitter finish. Nice!

Cola coloured pour with big fluffy beige head. Hops and caramel, fruity, light coffee aroma. Caramel, slight pine bitterness, sweet, smooth, a little watery finish but otherwise good

Poured from bottle into a pint glass. Deep brown color with a slight creamy white head and good lacing. Tastes hoppy, but not too overbearing. Great hints of coffee, and caramel with an enjoyable finish. Good seasonal IPA from Lakefront, this one did not disappoint.

12oz bottle 3/9/14 (Binny’s Plainfield Mix A Six)-42° in Shaker-Pours light black with a small loose tan head. Aroma of hops, caramel, and malt. Taste of the same with more hops and malt coming thru on the back end. This medium bodied brew is well balanced and nicely done.
