This Cascadian Immutable Dusk-style ale is as unwavering in its dark and beguiling flavor as it’s namesake. Enjoy this black IPA brewed with our friends in the band PELICAN.

Bottle pours deep dark brown and ruby hues. Nose lots of aromatic hop, pine, resin, tropical fruit. Taste bitter up front, the the dark roast/burnt typical of black IPA. Some balancing sweetness. Bitter finish with slight soapy hop. Black IPA has never been one of my favorite styles, but this one not bad.

22oz bottle pours rich dark brown with 2 finger tan head. Nose is musty, dusty, coffee grinds and fruity pine. Taste is roasty cocoa and coffee up front with a finish of subtle citrus fruit and pine. Nice.

Bomber from Three Floyds brewpub pours an opaque black with creamy tan head and excellent lacing. Aroma is full of pine resin, roasted malts and grapefruit. Taste is mostly bitter with lots of roasted malts, and even some chocolate and coffee in the middle before the big hoppy FFF signature finish. Body is medium with slight carbonation and a sticky, oily mouthfeel. A very well balanced black IPA which exceeded my expectations

Bottle from Three Floyds. Pours solid black with a continually growing head. Aroma is typical Black IPA - roasted malt and C-hops. Taste is ultra roasty, with light chocolate notes, licorice, light floral/citrus hops, and a huge bitter finish. Medium-bodied. Very nice Black IPA.

Sampled at esbls. Interesting looking dark brown. Little head. This has fairly big bitterness. Grapefruit. It numbs my yongue. Dark grains. Definitely has the FFF attitude. A bit gnarly and quite interesting.

Tmoney99 (13466) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 16, 2013
Bottle. Poured hazy dark brown with a large frothy tan head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted malt and earthy hop with a small alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a dry slick texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy dark bitter flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a very good complex beer.

22 oz. bottle shared by nuplastikk- thanks a lot, Greg! Pours a cloudy dark brown with a small beige head. Aroma of grapefruit, chocolate, earth, toast, dust, and a bit of rubber. Flavor is the same, with some more roast and florals. Medium-bodied, with a roasty, bitter mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Hardcore. Tasty BIPA.

Purchased as a bomber at Three Floyds, enjoyed at home while relaxing on a Thursday night watching football. Great beer, great band! Appearance is a ruby dark brown / black with a very pronounced, bulbous off white head that nicely laces to the glass. Aroma is a fantastic floral hop profile, along with a nice roasted chocolate malt. Taste has a nice passion fruit hop profile, goes down with a light sweetness and is hop forward without being overtly bitter. Really nice brew.
