COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We never saw the point of sucking up to Santa all year long for a couple of measly presents. If drinking this hoppy, toasted malt CDA puts us on the naughty list, where do we sign up?

(650ml bottle) Purchased at Hillside Liquors for $6.60. Pours a quick dissipating beige head atop a black body. Nose of resiny pine hops. Good hop front with a cream dark malt flavour. My first bottled Parallel 49 brew, and I’m very satisfied.

Ferris (4748) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 19, 2014
Bottle - Roasty and sweet piney hops. Deep jet brown black with a rich light brown head. Roast and chocolate with some nice bitterness and hops in the finish. Decent.

reebtogi (4310) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 11, 2014
341ml bottle pours almost black in color with a finger of off-white head that leaves spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is light roasted grains with some grapefruit and pine. Taste is a grapefruit and pine hop bitterness with a light chocolate malty sweetness. Light to medium bodied with good carbonation. A nicely done black IPA that needs to be sampled.

WheatKing (1305) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 25, 2013
Fruity citrus aroma, dark malts give some coffee flavours, viscosity is medium, a nice standard black IPA but missing that hop profile where you can pick out special flavours. Quite good, though.

mcberko (6880) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 30, 2012
650mL bottle, pours near-black with a small beige head. Aroma of light roast, caramel malt and some mild hop presence. Flavour brings out dry coffee, light roast, some woody hops and a bit of caramel. Quite dry and well-balanced, but lacking much depth or oomph. Solid stuff.

Inky dark brown, minimal off-white head. Chocolate, burnt toast, citrus, spruce. Dry and bitter start to finish.

Lagerboy (1293) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 25, 2012
Darkest brown, no hue. Foamy mocha head settles. Piney hop, sweet malt aroma. Roasted dark malts contrast nicely with an abundance of piney hops. Average carbonation, medium bodied, medium hopped. Sweetens a bit as it warms, thick finish. Nice CDA/BIPA NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

sulawang (632) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 20, 2012
pours super dark coffee black/brown with a very small creamy head, some sticky lacing, thin ringed retention, a few active clustered streams. Toasted caramel malts on the nose. Drinks with a bright sharp-hoppiness up front, 7/10-sweetness, roasted-toasted caramel medium malts, clinging hoppy bitterness, coffee, dark fig/dates, grapefruit sourness in the mids and finish, ending with a mildly grapefruit sour hoppy light-med bitter finish. Overall medium bodied with a partially watery mouthfeel. Medium complexity, medium depth, good transitions, good carry, good drinkability.
