Our black IPA is bursting with crisp, clean bitterness and layers of wonderful American hop character. Pale Ale, Munich and Naked Golden Oats give a toasty malt backbone with a smooth mouthfeel. The dark ominous color comes from the Chocolate Malt and the de-husked highly roasted malt. We want the layers of hops to shine against this roasty malt backdrop. Warrior, Citra, Chinook, Centennial and Amarillo lend bitterness as well as a wonderful cornucopia of aromas and flavors of fresh citrus fruit, pine, fresh cut mint and fresh flowers they offer.

Very, very dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is roasty malt and some grassy hops. Taste is citrus rind, roasted grain, a tiny bit of dark chocolate and a bit of malt sweetness. Palate is a tiny bit lighter than some black IPAs. Pretty good,

On tap at Lunar Brewing Co., and dispensed to a Czech-pils glass with a deepest brown color, with enough clarity to show amber highlighting, frothy tan head foam, and silky, curtain-like, clingy spray to the lacing. The nose was a bit of grain, malt sweetness, and mocha roastiness that finally showed up, but was mainly hidden by the sweetness, pronounced, citrusy grapefruit, and secondary resinous scent. Medium bodied, with fair carbonation, the taste included a citrusy & earthy hop bitterness that lingered, and roastiness that was again present, but still remained somewhat hidden. Some dryness appeared to assist in crispness to the finish. Liked the outcome.

Draft pour into a pint glass. Pours a near black with a beige head of foam. The aroma has grass, herbs, vanilla, and roast. Watermelon rind. Taste is mild bitterness with nice roast character. Bigger bodied and medium carbonation. Not bad for a black IPA.

It is disappointing to me there is only two beers by the name of Jukebox Hero in the database as of January 2015. I’d imagine if there were more this would still be one of the better ones. It calls itself a black IPA but I think you’d be crazy not to call this a hoppy porter; there is more than enough roasted character. This is deep garnet brown w/ a tan of head of mixed bubbles that sticks lots of lace to the side of the glass--a very nice looking brew. Its nose is hop forward but when you taste it the dark, chocolatey malt really jumps out. Pine and orange play well off roast chocolate and coca. This is a medium to full bodied beer w/ fine carbonation. It finishes w/ a lingering dark chocolate note and some citrus zest notes from the hops. This is a style that doesn’t always quite work but this one is really well done. I could see myself buying this very frequently if Revolution were to put it in six packs.
