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…”

crossovert (7897) - 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.

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!

b3shine (5829) - Indiana, USA - NOV 6, 2013
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.

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.

thedm (4971) - Fort Wayne, USA - OCT 26, 2014
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of foamy with a frothy top light brown colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque except at the edges dark brown colored body and a good lacing. The mild aroma was brown malt. The flat mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish with a medium malty aftertaste. The semi-thick flavor contained notes of roasted malt mild hops and brown malt. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

hotstuff (4269) - Indiana, USA - NOV 12, 2014
Rated on 10-26-2014 (Bottle) The appearance is a very small tan head, hazy black brown body fast rising carbonation, and no lacing. The aroma is roasted malt and citrus hops. The flavor is lightly bitter, citrus hops and roasted malt. The mouthfeel is light carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. This beer is very quaffable and is worth trying.

patrick767 (3590) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 15, 2012
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.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 12, 2012
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.
