COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Cascadian Dark Ale, otherwise know as our Double Black IPA, emerged stylistically from the Pacific North West. It has an IPA backbone with a "special blend" of choice roasted malts combined with a hard hitting matchup of hops, knocking this beer into a new weight class. Dry hopped and unfiltered for maximum flavor and punch. Enjoy it with a trainer!

Bottle from Colonial Spirits Dark brown with a tan head. Earthy pine and citrus atop a lightly roasty chocolate sweet maltiness. That’s a pretty good black ipa right there.

rjplumer (838) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 22, 2015
Dark fruit malt aroma. Black body with a light tan head. Roasted malt character with a light bitter sweet fruit to balance things out. Heavy mouth feel. Although not bad but not really to my personal liking.

UPDATED: FEB 10, 2016 Opaque, tan and fluffy head. Intense and complex nose. Very full body, intense flavor, silky texture, hot mouthfeel with abundant carbonation, lingering palate, tasty and balanced finish. Sweet, bitter, crisp, well balanced. Roast flavors predominate, as expected, tar, coffee, milk chocolate, lactose, hoppy, yeasty, resiny, malty. Superb, what a discovery! And a local brewery.
