The black IPA is a wonderful winter beer. Its hoppy character is sure to warm you up on a chilly Michigan winter night. Made with Chinook, Columbus and Cascade hops and Pilsner, C-40, Midnight Wheat and Carapils malts.

Rated on 4-29-2016 (Bottled on 02/04/16) The appearane is a large foamy tan head with a long retention, opaque dark brown/red tint body and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is hops, earthy, lightly roasted, chocolate, and malt. The flavor presents light bitterness, citrus hops, grapefruit, chocolate, roasted malt, and some caramel. The mouthfeel is light carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. A quaffable beer for the style that is worth trying.

Thick and black color, great hop profile from start to finish. Very hoppy, but very well balanced.

12 oz. stubby bottle from notes. Pours dark brown to black in color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malts, chocolate, earthy and herbal hops, decent bitterness to the finish, a splash of citrus, has a lighter body than the color would suggest, decent.

Bottle. Great looking pour with a large frothy head. Aroma of chalk, must, caramel, roasted oats, some line and herbs. Roasted oats at the forefront like a oatmeal stout. Earthy hop finish

Bendrixian (1487) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 8, 2015
Love the stubby bottle. Pitch black with a brownish head. Pine cones of the hop with roasted nuts and chocolate and more pungent hops aroma. Balanced brew with a some what disappointing amount of bitterness. Roast and chocolate with a light hoppy finish. It could use a bit more aggression but enjoyable.

Awesome fluffy head with large moon craters. Dark dark brown black color. Nice hoppy nose. Slight malt flavors, delicious breadiness, not too bitter.

bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Opaque black with a full brown head that slowly drops to a cover, mottled sheets of lace. Taste is toasted malt that grows substantially as it moves through the palate to a well-balanced hoppy finish. A great brew, worth searching out.
