Hop Noir is a delectable Black IPA, dripping with piney, aromatic Centennial hops. The malt base is dark and rich, anchored by organic black malt. This provides a strong foundation for the extravagant kettle hopping and dry-hopping that this beer experiences. Enjoy with a night-light.

Pours well with ruby black hues and generous head. Aroma sweetish toffee, palate dark treacle, hops not bold enough to qualify for IPA status, so maybe not well named. Drinks nicely. Maybe too much time spent making it black rather than a Black IPA

Alanthebeerguy (213) - British Columbia, CANADA - APR 5, 2014
#21 - pours dark brown, thick tan head, good lacing. Smells of citrus, dates, chocolate, coffee. Taste is more on the malt side, the hop coming through as a bitter effect. A little sweet. Chocolate and sour coffee. More like a porter, but slight bitter finish. Just OK. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thin, off white creamy head and an opaque black body. Nose of sour malt with a bitter hop front. Strangely over-carbonated and fruity. Deep roastineas trough the finish but thin across the palate. Very average.

bulldogops (2270) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 25, 2013
Rating #847 - December 21, 2013 - Beer 21 from the Craft BeerAdvent Calendar. Pours a cinematic black, with a bubbly tan head. Aroma is a violent clash between toasted malt, and floral piney hops. Taste is extremely hoppy, tempered with a pleasant coffee, chocolate, burnt sugar sweetness that disguises the higher abv quite well and is beyond refreshing. Unreal.
