Black as heck! Delicious IPA. Aromatic. Tastes like some greens. Pretty darn hoppy. Malts aren't too strong.

Gbgbrouge (251) - SWEDEN - FEB 16, 2015
Sampled at tasting. Pours dark brown with beige head. Aroma with strong notes of stable, subtle notes of caramel and herbs very faint. Taste is sweetly bitter with lots of body and a soft finish. More strong ale than black IPA.

Leini (1060) - SWEDEN - FEB 10, 2015
Sample at a tasting event. Black body with a medium head. Starts off with loads of tropical fruit, citrus and pine and finishes semi dry with some roasted notes.

Stine (1641) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 28, 2015
Dark sienna brown capped with a staying film of beige. Graham crust, pine resin and grapefruit, with little moments of strawberry in the aroma, initially hitting all the marks of this uniquely predictable style. The roasted malts evoke a startlingly strong umami note, like beech mushrooms with carob. This interesting sensation is somewhat fleeting, as the flavor resettles into bakers chocolate, citrus juices, and dry charred malt. Well balanced palate with medium weight, crisp carbonation; easily drinkable. Forest floor musty flavors linger uneasily throughout, in connection with that umami note.

LinusStick (2910) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 25, 2015
A delicious black IPA. Aroma was good. Roasted malt and a light ashiness. Pour was a nice deep dark brown with a thin tan film for a head. Taste was full of deep dark roasted malt with the hops tasting surprisingly green and fresh. Left a bitter malt and fresh hop taste on the back of the tongue after the swallow. Very complex with a nice carbonation.

Torrefacto (729) - Madrid, SPAIN - JAN 24, 2015
Negro con espuma beis muy compacta y duradera. Aromas de tostados y resinas muy intenso. El cuerpo es medio, con un sabor inicial ligeramente maltoso, al que sigue un tostado y resinoso intenso que se traduce en un fuerte amargor duradero.

deyholla (7266) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 1, 2015
On tap at New Bohemia. Pours a deep brown with a tan head that dissipates slowly to the edges and laces. Aroma combines earthy dark grains and grass with a bit of pine bitterness. Flavor has lots of earthy dark grains with and bit of grass and pine bitterness as well as some dry roasted malts in the finish.

Less hoppy than I like this feels like a half stout half ipa more than a black ipa. It doesn't have a lot of punch or bitterness but does taste good which keeps it high in my book. Very drinkable just not offensive enough for me :-) Bottle in socal. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

355ml bottle. Black pour. A decent if not super hoppy black ipa that has a chocolate orange flavor adn doesn’t need to be bitter to work.
