COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A growing style in the Northwest, Dark IPAís feature all the tasty attributes of a standard IPA, yet juxtaposed against a black malt canvas. Discord is not short on character, with a prominent malt profile that meets up with the bitterness and hop presence from five different hops. A variety of roasted malts provide color and flavor, yet this beer has a lighter body reminiscent of an IPA, not heavy like a porter or stout.

Beautiful color. More of a dark ale than IPA with the perfect amount of hop aroma. Way to step it up Pyramid!

Pyramid Discord Black IPA is a dark berry colored beer. Itís almost black until you hold it to the light. Itís topped with a dense, waxy khaki foam that has outstanding retention and lacing. There are bright, citrusy hops in the aroma with notes of fresh squeezed orange juice and fresh cut fir... perhaps a hint of roast and ash. Itís medium bodied and foamy. It leaves the tongue dry and rough. Itís quite bitter. Pine resin fades into juniper and leaves a medicinal aftertaste. The dark malt is far in the background. This is all about the hops, for sure. This is not a timid beer, nor is it for the timid. This is a nice bitter slap in the face.

Tap at Toronado SF, paired with a cheeseburger from next door (it was Tuesday). Clearish black, small tan head. Tons of roasted malts, coffee grounds, with a nice hoppy bite. I like black IPAs!!!

Three dollar bomber and I need to ingest some hops. Dark toasty coffee aroma, piney hops. Jet black, creamy pale tan head. Full roast, minimal chocolate, nice piney hop finish, well balanced. Works on paper, works in the glass, works for my budget. This beer along with Pyramidís Imperial Hef and their Outburst IPA shows that they are very capable of producing great beer on a large, economical scale.

Had this on draft at Pyramid Brewery by Safeco field. Top notch black IPA. Hoppy malty and chocolate notes. Love it

Translucent black with roast barley red underpinning. Light cream chocolate head that thickens around the edges. Perfect pitch, clean floral hop nose with a Chinook presence amidst a subdued roastiness. Lovely floral hop taste with some carafa at the periphery though this brew is predominately about the hopped. Excellent balance with just enough roast complexity to tempt you back to revisit.

Sampled in Boulder. A quite nice dark IPA. I liked how they went a bit heavier on the malts than other. Quality.

Aroma: Chocolate and coffee malts, hints of earthy yeast with floral hops at the edges. Appearance: Dark black with minimal head. Taste: Light sweetness with light sourness at the edges of the finish. Palate: Medium body, thin texture, soft carbonation, long finish. Overall: Not unpleasant, and certainly well designed and balanced, but itís also not a standout either. Still, itís very solid.
