Our Black IPA fuses speciality malts with a tropical punch bowl of new world hops to deliver a contradictory yet cultured concoction. A classically ‘pale’ aroma and quenchingly fruity palate belies a broodingly dark and deceptive appearance. Can a beer be both ‘black and pale’? Time to consult the Magic 8 Ball.

Benzai (11028) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - OCT 1, 2014
Sampled @ Borefts 2014. Dark brown color, small to average sized off-white head. Aroma is a bit faint, but that might be due to cold serving temperatures. Taste malts, dark malts, lightly some roast, nicely hoppy, nicely bitter. Quite good! Medium body and carbonation. Nice one!

Sampled draft @ Borefts 2014. Thank you! Dark brown black with no head. Lots of mocha, cacao in the nose. Taste is cold coffee, syrup, brown sugar, lightly bitter, touch grass. Nice but not very hoppy for the style.

@Borefts 2014, Was al even op zoek geweest naar deze, kwam pas later op de tap. zwart met lichte kaki kraag. aroma van zeer lichte den, wat nat gras, zoetig, alcohol, lichte BIPA kenmerken helaas.Smaken van lichte den, nat gras, matig zoet, lichte body en vrij dun van textuur, afdronk is zwak bitter die snel verdwijntm nee deze valt mij toch een beetje tegen (of ik had er graag meer van verwacht ;) )

Keg at BD ShepBush. Clear dark brown, moderate cream head recedes to ring and spots, some fine lace. Aroma of caramel, roast, pine, citrus, touch of tropical. Taste of moderate sweet dark caramel burnt sugar, bitter hop and some roast, touch of dark chocolate, more citrus. Medium body, softish carb, nice long hoppy finish. Solid.

The_Osprey (3839) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2014
Keg at The Hope, Carshalton. Nearly black, big foamy off-white head. Aroma is piney hop, grass, bubblegum. Body is medium, a bit foamy, a touch spritzy. Taste is lightly medicinal, strong Turkish delight, pine, liquorice allsorts. Strong flavours, but not my favoured ones. Good beer though.
