UPDATED: DEC 19, 2012 Black IPA di squisita fattura, malti tostati e luppolo in perfetto equilibrio, davvero una grande birra. Peccato sia una one shot.

In bottle. Amazing Aroma and taste to match. My young sun smelt it and said straight away, smells like lychees! He has a point. A smashing full well balanced beer. Top drawer. Forza Italia!

Fantastica Black IPA !! il malto tostato e torrefatto unito alla grande quantità di luppolo presente ne fanno una birra amara saporita e decisa nei suoi sapori.Veramente buona e beverina nonostante la combinazione amara del caffe e del luppolo!!

Ultimamente ho una passione davvero sfrenata per le black ipa! questapoi mi è piaciuta particolarmente. Bel colore nero come la notte tanta schiuma color nocciola, molto persistente, sapore di ipa e sapore di caffè e altro per via dei malti tostati, sapore di luppoli e caffè si sposano molto bene a mio avviso! Ottimo retrogusto complesso e duraturo!

Znakomite, Wloska innowacja tworcza nie ma granic. Wspaniale czarne piwo z intensywnym czekoladowo-chmielnym aromacie. Wielka brązowa piana utrzymująca sie sporo czasu. Piwo w smaku czekoladowe gozkie i ciezkie. Finisz jak najbardziej chmielowy.

Bottle @ home. What an amazing black ipa, or should I say black cascadian ale. First aroma is underwhelming with the first taste. Chocolate, creamy coffee, fruits, flowers, roasted malts, sweet caramel. Incredibly good balance. One of the best I had in the black ipa corner. Highly recommended. ---Rated via Beer Buddy (iOs)

draft sample @ Chez Moeder Lambic Fontainas // Italian Beer Festival // black with a mocha head // smells like mocha, I am getting sorachi ace, fruity with berries, dark fruits, grapefruit, pine, touch chocolate and roast // bitter cocoa, coffee, chocolate, touch roast, dark fruits, sorachi in the finish, nice finish, berries, grapefruit, pine, touch sweet earthly hops // smooth and creamy // I am begging to feel that Black IPA’s are beging to evolve to genuine black IPA’s as opposed to Imperial Porters with plenty of hops // I like them either way and this is a great one

Dark brown nearly black, with a medium beige head. Aroma is floral, hoppy and fruity, some coffee. Taste goes very complex, straight bitter-tart, coffee, grapefruit, very hoppy, some roasted malts. A great ale.
