COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The rich darkness is not excessive as is sometimes seen in other craft iterations. A medium high hop flavor and aroma befits this style. The caramel and roasted malt flavors and aromas are enhanced with a well-controlled fruitiness.

kjohns (131) - North Dakota, USA - DEC 23, 2012
Dark brown pour with thin light tan head. Aroma is dominated by roast malt and some sweet caramel. Taste is also quite malt heavy, more sweet than roasty. Not enough IPA characteristics in this brew for me.

ljthiessen (325) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 3, 2014
Bottle. Very dark brown pour with almost no head. Dark roasty malts with some caramel in the aroma, a touch of hops shining through. More hops in the flavour, but not a lot for a black IPA. Lightly burnt, roasty malt flavour with a touch of caramel and fairly bitter at the end. Medium bodied. Decent flavour, but a little imbalanced and not incredible.

SpringsLicker (3121) - Tennessee, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Opaque black pour with a tall tan head. Roast malt aroma. Sweet and nutty. Lightly sweet flavor, nutty roast malts that were mirrored from the aroma. Not much hop aroma or flavor makes this black IPA lean towards the stout side.

HughConway (780) - Washington, USA - JUN 14, 2014
12oz bottle. Pours black, slight tan head. Coffee, chocolate aroma, taste is roasted coffee and chocolate. Bit of bitter at the back. There’s not much IPA about this, but it’s a tasty porter.

obguthr (3663) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - FEB 18, 2014
Coffee and raisn nose, not strong. Mahogany, thick tan head, good lacing. Medium body. Smoky charred oak, raisin accent, parsley, grass. Very slightly vegetal in a not so good way. Solid, but like so many IDAs, it comes across more like an hoppy porter.

islay (1074) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 31, 2014
12 oz. bottle, consumed on 1-30-14. Pleasant aroma features cookie, brownie, light black licorice, cumin, and char scents. Pours a very dark brown with a small amount of beige head. Ordinary appearance. In the flavor, hops are noticeable but overpowered by the roasted malts. Roasted coffee and vanilla flavors. A bit fruit-juicy in the finish; grape popsicle. Light to medium body. Fizzy, frothy, and a bit lively in the palate. Simple and forgettable overall.

Iphonephan (3059) - McLean, Virginia, USA - JAN 25, 2014
From a 12 oz bottle shared in Bozeman MT. Pours clear dark reddish brown with a tan head. Aromao of toasted nuts. Flavors roasted malt with some woody notes. Meidum bodied, high carbonation, bitter finish.

UkrainPubCrawler (92) - Minnesota, USA - NOV 14, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 29, 2013 I love dark IPA’s and this is definitely one of my favorites. Extremely hoppy but well balanced and with a smooth finish. Absolutely delicious!

djroehler (290) - Minnesota, USA - NOV 13, 2013
Bottle. Very dark brown, thick tan head. Aroma is coffee, roasted malt. Taste is rich dark roasted malt, coffee, bitter and herbal hops, then citrus comes through.
