COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.

nuplastikk (4673) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 28, 2014
22oz bottle at CC/KY tasting. Nails it. Tropical citrus hop tones and a nice specialty malt backdrop. Balance, quite a solid Black IPA. Minty, chewy caramel, chocolate. Solid stuff.

HonkeyBra (3496) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - NOV 28, 2013
22 oz. bottle. Pours a rich black with a thick khaki colored head. Aroma of chocolate, roast, pine, resin, and citrus notes. Some grapefruit, some mango and peach notes come out after it sits as well. Flavor is bitter but not bracingly so, branching out into exploring more flavor hops combined with the roasty and chocolate malt bill. Some cake and biscuit doughy sweetness combined with fruity hop notes. Bitterness comes out a bit more towards the back end. Pillowy mouthfeel with a creamy texture. Finishes somewhat subtly hoppy. Whether it’s a cascadian dark ale or a black IPA, this is what the style should aspire to be.

Bottle thanks to Nick. Pours a dark brown with small beige head. The aroma is strong floral hop and roast malt. Medium mouthfeel with light roast and nice bitter hop. Easy to drink. Very nice.

SlackerMads (1681) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2014
Bottle. Black with a large creamy tan head. Fresh citrusy and soapy hops, dark chocolate, liquorice. Medium body - pretty light for what I expected, oily texture, medium carbonation. Low on sweetness, long bitter finish. Good drinkability and my kind of black IPA.

Black pour with a thin head. Really full mouth. Lots of lace. Pleasing aroma full of grass and pine. Taste is bitter with grapefruit, grain and a little bit of roast. Really tasty Black IPA.
