Shipyard Black IPA is for the pirate in you. This is a dark black beer that combines a rich malty character with the crisp flavor and aroma of American Northwest hops. Itís a beer the legendary Blackbeard would have hoisted as he sailed the seven seas. Itís worth walking the plank for!

Fritz123 (1473) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - JAN 26, 2014
Bottle from Total Wine in Boca Raton, FL. Poured into a pint glass at home. Jet black pour with a mocha looking head. Head gone in about 45 seconds but some rim left. Some lacing as well. Aroma is a serious roasted malt, mocha, coffee, and pine resin. The taste was very hoppy with fresh pine, bitterness that can either be a hop or like coffee grounds, hint of caramel, roasted malts and prunes. Its a little rough on the palate (although I burnt my tongue on a funnel cake earlier so maybe itís just me. LOL) But it was very bitter and almost unpleasant on the palate. Finish is tasty and bitter. Overall it was pretty good.

Rating #1273 6.10.2014. 341ml bottle from Shipyard IPA mix pack from Coop. Pours a darker coffee brown with a bubbly tan head. Aroma is a violent clash between toasted malt, and citrus, grainy hops. Taste is extremely hoppy, tempered with a pleasant coffee, nut brown sweetness. But then again, I love black "pale" ales.

Appearance: Dark brown in color with an average sized beige head on top
Flavor: The flavor is a mix of roasty and bitter, decent overall
Palate: Medium bodied with a solid mouthfeel, soft carbonation, and a dry finish
Overall Impression: Decent overall beer. Solid flavor, gets dry in the finish. Not great, but not bad either. Still, this one is pretty solid.

Bottle. Dark brown nearly black body with tan head. Aroma is roasted malts with coffee and some dried fruits in the background. Taste is nearly the same but with a little bit more fruits. Aftertaste is bitter with some roasted malts. Nice one.

patricks110 (2228) - Alberta, CANADA - AUG 11, 2015
More like a mildly hoppy porter. Light bitterness but tons of heavy, dark malt notes. A bit of cocoa, espresso and mild roasted bitterness. Pure black, opaque with a creamy tan head. Aroma is rich and roasted. Nice brew but not quite a black ipa

joejames (388) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 29, 2015
Bottle to shaker glass, pours reddish-black. Two finger tan head, some lace and retention. Aroma of roasted malt and herbs. Taste is very well balanced sweet malts and citrusy hop bitterness. Medium body, average carbonation, creamy mouth feel. Finishes long and bitter. Tasting notes of roast, dark chocolate, mango, smoke and resin. Very good example of the style.
