COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Komodo Dragonfly Black IPA is a well-balanced, dark, bitter, and totally unique beer experience. We brewed this IPA with a base of fresh Pilsner Malts and darkened the color with pure Black Malts, creating a clean malt character that allows the liberal hop additions to shine through. Komodo is dry hopped and aged with a pinch of lavender to add to the overall aromatic experience.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 26, 2012
Bottle 35,5 cl. Courtesy of Doodler. Pours a pitch black with a dense light brown head. Hard roast aroma with only a hint of hops. Solid body, hard and a little harsh roasty malts while the hops don’t really add much but bitterness - and it sure ends bitter. I’d call this a Stout - simply. Hasn’t really got the good aroma hops to make this a Black IPA. 260412

brokensail (10833) - Orange County, California, USA - APR 29, 2010
A: The pour is a dark brown, almost black, color with a very fluffy tan colored head and some nice sheets of lacing. S: The primary aroma is roasted malt with some coffee notes and a noticeably acidity. T: Like the nose, the roasted malt is the primary component along with coffee, an acidic note, and a bitter finish. M: The body is medium with a lively and tingly carbonation. D: Not sure if the high carbonation and acidity were due to infection, but this one just seemed a bit "off". For a black IPA, this wasn’t all that hoppy.
