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.

Good balance between sweetness and hops. Caramel aroma, sweeter than your typical IPA. Bitter finish.

obguthr (3435) - Lynchburg, 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 (888) - 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.

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!

vikingguy (761) - Chaska, Minnesota, USA - OCT 11, 2013
Dark brown. Chocolate malts and some grassy hops on the nose. Tastes like a bitter chocolate stout. Just alright for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark body with off white head. This is definitely more on the stout side of the black IPA style. Like a really nice stout with noticable hops, rather than just a darkened or slightly roasted malt IPA, which is more typical of black IPAs. Anyway, this was unique and very tasty.
