COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
American Style Black India Pale Ale. We used an American base malt, Caramalt, and dehusked CaraFa with an addition of cold steeped Black malt to give this IPA it’s black color. Centennial and Columbus hop additions result in an aggressive hop character for a dark beer. The flavor of an IPA style ale meets with hints of roasted dark malts. “BIPA, BIPA, BIPA, can’t you see… sometimes your flavaz just hypnotize me…”

Draft to taster. Looks solid; a transparent dark brown with thin off-white lacing. Smells of dark malt and roast with a fairly bitter hop profile. Tastes like it smells with a touch of chocolate too. Solid on the palate. A decent Black IPA.

A - Black with a red/copper hue. Tan head that was pretty thick and stuck around. S - Lots of roasted barley T - Not nearly as hoppy as expected. Had a very balanced flavor with a subtle hop bitterness and good coffee/malt flavor. M - Very thick and creamy (probably more so because of the nitro). D - Not nearly as harsh as most Black IPA’s I’ve had and bonus points for the name. I hope to try this on CO2 so I can take it home in my growler next time.

crossovert (6367) - Illinois, USA - MAY 13, 2013
Bottle, eaten with home made authentic sishuan so take it for wht its work. Black pour, struggles to form head. Smell is malty, cocoa nad fruity hops. Flavor has a medium biterness with pith-like citrus flavors and a normal brown ale type base. Works with sishuan.

574deadzone (890) - North Central, Indiana, USA - OCT 11, 2013
Another fucking hilarious label from People’s. Pours dark brown/black with a fair khaki head that settles to a ring and leaves lots of spotty lace. Nose involves a nice clean hop profile, pine and some tropical fruit, along with dark chocolate and a lightly roasted character. Fairly sweet, a wee bit tart, and quite bitter. Lighter side of medium bodied, oily, softer carb, with a nice drying roasted hop finish. Nice and enjoyable, not over the top but not lacking either.

Bottle. Vanilla caramel malt and pine/grapefruit peel aroma. Dark chestnut with large tan head. Sweet chocolate caramel malt and moderately bitter pine/orange peel flavor. Very nicely blended. Very tasty.

queenholly (2617) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - APR 28, 2013
Bottle. Roasty coffee, light chocolate, and fresh minty hops aroma. Black brown with a large thick creamy tan head. Earthy roasty malt with subdued minty grapefruit peel hops flavor. Medium body, soft carbonation. Very nice malt forward black IPA.

Great color and great taste! Very good malty smell with a nice bitter finish that I expect with an IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

valpoaj (613) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - MAR 8, 2013
draft pour in west laf...black with a thin tan head. aroma somewhat muted, but what there is pleasant and actually quite malty with some citrus notes in the background. flavor is quite tasty...sweet malts up front transition into some citrus hop flavors and end with a solid, but not overwhelming bitterness. palate is smooth and above average for the style...lingering bitterness was nice with an oily touch. although nothing to date has been particularly memorable from this brewery, this was one I’d return to and makes me want to give some new ones a try.

On tap, pours black with an off white head and lacing in the glass, the aroma was of fresh hops and citrus with a little bit of chocolate and roast as well, the flavor has a hoppy front end with some tropical fruit and citrus with a finish of roast, nicely balanced.

8/11/12. GTMW. Medium black/dark brown pour with a nice tan head. Citrusy, hoppy aroma along with touches of roast, mainly coffee in essence. Nice malty entry with plenty of coffee and roast, followed by plenty of citrusy hops. Tasty enough!
