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 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.

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!

tap at Brewhaven festival - This near black colored beer has an aroma mainly of roasted malt with hops lurking in the background. The flavor features ample bitterness with roasted malt and citrus tastes leading into a long, bitter finish. It’s medium to full bodied and quite well done.

Dark black in color, cler with a thin tan head. Nice Dark malt and light hops aroma and flavor. This had a good malt backing the hops however are too light. I was hoping for more hps to make this a real tasty Black CDA.

Draft at People’s. Pours, well, black with a pale tan head that persists. Nose is freshly hoppy and very clean. Faint caramel and toast in the nose. Lots of citrus and floral. On tasting, clean and sturdy malt profile. Lots of citrusy hops dominate, medium-high bitterness. Really clean overall and enjoyable. Nice Black IPA.
