COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Can. Predicable color and head. Aromas of chocolate and pine. Flavors are a nice mix of the above. Very serviceable example of the style and no interesting comments on my part.

Une canette. Belle robe brune foncée avec une mousse qui colle sur mon verre. Au niveau des arômes, les malts rôtis et chocolatés ne gênent aucunement les arômes de houblons verts, d’épinettes et d’agrumes. Au goût, les houblons colorent solidement le noir laissé par les céréales. En bouche, le liquide a un corps moyen-mince, est pétillant et légèrement aqueux. En finale, c’est amer de façon modérée.

Nephilium (1593) - Ohio, USA - JAN 20, 2016
Starts with a touch of roast, with a lot of pine and citrus. Pours a dark ruby red, with a generous light tan head. The roast exists just as a counterpoint to the hops. There are a lot of bright hop flavors that come through, with pine and citrus being the predominant ones. There’s just a bit of bitterness in the finish, which blends well with the chocolate. Overall this is a great black IPA.
