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.

FaithHealer1 (358) - SCOTLAND - JAN 14, 2012
Bottle at North Bar, Leeds. Pours a deep black, finger of tan head that quickly dies. Aroma is classic black IPA, with a brilliant mango note and passion fruit. Taste is very bitter, hoppy and very nicely ashy. Resiny note just kicks at the end. Coffee finish.Particularly good for me, because Im not a big black IPA fan.

jackl (7069) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 22, 2012
Bottle. Pours black with a big ol’ tan head. The nose is a bit spicy, plenty of wood, grassy hops, some bitter chocolate too. The taste is initially dry, a bit peppery, hoppy with hints of tropical fruits dipped in chocolate. The finish is long, flavorful. The body’s medium, the carbonation active. Overall, a very nice black IPA.

A dark ipa? An oxymoron if ever there was one. A dark pitch black beer with a golden brown head. Feint fruity aroma and a deep hoppy flavour. A roasted coffee aftertaste from the dark malts makes this a really mind bogglingly interesting drink. --- a mobile beer rating
