COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Cascadian Dark Ale features vibrant citrusy and floral American hops balanced against a complex malt profile of toasty dark malts with a hint of roasted barley. Just like an early morning surf session, once you start you keep going back.

Formerly Surf Patrol Black IPA.

Dark pour with a light tan head. Aroma of hops mixed with roasted malt and some roasted nuts. Flavor is a pretty decent mix of hops and roasted malt. Not a bad take on a style that I am kinda sick of.

Thisis12ptfont (838) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - MAY 6, 2012
Earthy/leafy hop aroma with some bread/oat undertones. Heavy shade of blackish purple with a medium brown foam at the top. Coffee and nuts upfront with a decent hop presence in the back. Some light spice and oats hit the finish. Overall, this is a well flavored black IPA with some porter like tastes, yet still bringing that signature IPA hop presence. I’d give this a B- rating.

Looks a little funny in the glass, and has an interesting aroma that isn’t a hop smell or a malt smell. not bad, just different. Black IPA is not what I would call this. I’d call it a happy brown ale.

IrishBoy (3836) - Bakersfield, California, USA - APR 3, 2012
Bomber from Me & Ed’s Pizza, Oxnard. Nose is pine, grapefruit, and a hint of roasted malt. Black with a big beige head. Flavor is bitter with piney resin and a hint of toasted bread.

JDUB (178) - Venice Beach, California, USA - MAR 17, 2012
Bomber bottle. Dark coffee, light tan head. Stout like nose. Hops pretty subdued.

ChazMania (653) - Pasadena, California, USA - MAR 5, 2012
Bomber- first beer from this brewery. Aroma is roasty and citrusy- nice and fresh smelling. Appearance is dark with small foamy head. Good taste, like a light version of Stone SSR. Body is a tad thin compared to others for the style that are chewier. An overall very enjoyable first beer from this place.

AmEricanbrew (5840) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - DEC 7, 2011
Black color with tan foam. Hoppy pine, florals with dusty black malts. medium bodied with average co2. Mildly astringent dry black malt flavors with pine, floral hoppage, late semi sweet chocolate, with a drying finish--good.

MattH (646) - California, USA - OCT 26, 2011
Tap. Light aroma of pine, sweet bready malts, and a little sour milk. Taste is mostly mellow roasted and bready malts, but there is a slight pine hop bite. Soft mouthfeel.

Hophead22 (2880) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - OCT 17, 2011
Tap at TDA, it was a big ’ole pint too. Rating #6. Dark black with a big beige head. Roasty hop aroma, light coffee. Clean roasty flavor, more piney hops and just pretty delicious overall. (1948)

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - AUG 16, 2011
Draught at the brewery. Black with a pale head. Dry malt flavor with some chocolate. Hoppy stuff as to be expected. Clean profile overall with some nice citrus flavor. Nice balance of chocolate and hops but does neither particularly well.
