4 oz. pour, on tap at the brewery’s taproom in Madison, Wisconsin. Consumed on 10-2-15. Pours dark brown with beige head and good, full lacing. Weak aroma. Chocolate scent. Roasted flavor. A bit of Band-Aid in the taste, unfortunately. Some dryness in the taste. More stout than black IPA, but the dry hoppiness does kick in eventually in the finish. Smooth in the palate. Medium body. Good palate effects.

nimbleprop (6355) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 24, 2015
On tap at Cooper’s Tavern in Madison, pours a murky black with some bright white head. Nose has burnt toast, some light coffee notes, pine resin, soap, herbs, dried citrus peel. Flavor balances roast and citrus well, toast, bread, orange, pine, soap. Full bodied, dry and bitter finish. Really solid and what you expect of the style.

Sampled from the tap at Vintage. Pours near black with a grayish brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has notes of roasted malts and dark grains with a hint of pine underlying. Flavor has creamy dark grains with light roasted malts balanced by pine and a bit of grass.

Pours dark brown/opaque with a good inch head. Very hoppy for a black IPA. A little light in mouth feel. Overall a tasty beer.

On draft at the One Barrel Brewery. This is about as good of a black ipa as I can remember ever tasting. It has prominent hop and malt notes, it’s mighty smooth like a beer this dark ought to be and the bitterness shines through it all, crisp and refreshing. The flavors complement one another - juicy orange and cantaloupe on the back end and found in the aroma, paired with a smoked and nutty malt flavor that hits initially. The appearance is opaque blackish brown and thin in consistency. Medium to light bodied. Despite the dark color, I could probably finish a couple pints of this no problem. This one has me convinced that black ipa’s are my ideal seasonal-transition beer from winter to spring, when we still have one foot sitting on the side of hefty malt driven ales to and the other foot has moved over on the side of lighter, hoppier and more refreshing brews.
