COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pale & dark roasted malts join together with generous portions of Yakima Valley hops in this unique new style of beer that was born in the Northwest. All the rich malty goodness you would expect from dark ale is accented by the hop kick of an IPA. Citrus and floral aroma is complimented by velvety smooth roasted malt flavor. A Northwest style of beer which boldly exhibits the wealth of local ingredients that make this such a great beer region.

BrewDad (4996) - Olympia, Washington, USA - APR 6, 2012
Dark brown in color, clear with a thin head. Dark roast malts with a big hops aroma and flavor. Rich complex flavor with light caramel flavor lingering. Light earthy hops also appear in the finish also. Easy drinking CDA.

BillKismet (3335) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 1, 2012
Deep caramel color--nearly black, and opaque, with a beige, lacy head. Muted hop presence throughout this CDA. Perhaps some splinters of Centennial. Moderately roasty, with a rough cola character in aroma and flavor. Fresh grain character. Quite malt-forward for the style.Sort of a cross between an amber and a brown porter.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - FEB 1, 2012
Sample at brewery. Brown/black. Aroma of hops first, then toasty malts. Taste is also hop first but finishes with some toasted grain flavor. Good texture and carbonation.

improvjock (322) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 4, 2011
On tap at Kate’s Pub. Pours a dark brown with small light tan head that leaves a lot of nice lacing as it goes down. Strong smell of brown sugar and a bit of dried candied fruit. Flavor of sweet malts and a bit of bitterness in the finish. Smooth mouthfeel. A very nice winter warmer.

riversideAK (5625) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAR 24, 2011
Nose of cola, light roast, light floral and piney hops. Perhaps a hint of butter as well. Pours more or less black, short lived head that settles to nothing. The flavor is mostly cola, roast, floral and piney hops with a squirt of movie theater butter. Moderate carbonation. Pretty tame and mildly problematic.

after4ever (6127) - Brier, Washington, USA - FEB 5, 2011
Draft at Tap House Bellevue. Pours a nearly opaque black with a short-lived, fish-eyed smear of foam across the top. Mild piney, dry, resiny, roasty nose. Definitely not going to hit you over the head like some BIPAs want to...for better or worse. This one seems a bit on the timid side. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Roast, pine, and grapefruit on the mid-palate. Nice but nothing special.
