COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The tenacious grip of big, juicy hop aroma and character slides smoothly into rich, dark malts. This heavyweight battle between fresh, Yakima Valley hops and dark, roasted malts is resolved harmoniously as the flavors merge to deliver complex satisfaction with a warming edge. Enjoy the ‘twilight’ for the bright and brassy hops!

Sammy (10327) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 25, 2009
Draft at Coles rare beer fest, a Black IPA. A sub-style I like, exceeding on this day the Phillips I have enjoyed from British Columbia. Its black, a west coast IPA with some shwartzbeer character. Lots of lace. C-hop in aroma not over the top.Above verage mouthfeel.

crossovert (10314) - Illinois, USA - SEP 15, 2012
Really nothing special. More of a brown IPa and that means I should like it but the pervasive malt just kills it.

adnielsen (10312) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 23, 2010
Tasted on tap at FreshCraft in Denver, Colorado. Dark reddish appearance reminiscent of a Bock. Also has a foamy carbonated head which almost looks like a nitro. Weak dark malty and hoppy aroma. Not too dark of body with the floral hoppy flavor. Doesn’t at all taste like it has almost 9% alcohol. Pretty good beer.

Botella. Clear deep amber brown colour. Sweet hoppy fruity caramel aroma. Pleasantly sweet fruity hoppy caramel bitter flavour. Dry bitter finish.

DSG (9748) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - APR 30, 2012
Bottle shared at a tasting at Dagan’s place. Clear dark brown color with a beige head. Roasty-hoppy aroma with some citrus, a bit of pine and floral notes. Flavor has some roastiness, light sweetness, grapefruity and piney hops and a bitter, roasty and hoppy finish. Medium-bodied. Very nice.

DrSilverworm (9467) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 17, 2011
12oz bottle. Very dark brown-red appearance, minimal head. Very roasty aroma, like a stout almost, but without the creaminess. It has a very crisp, lightly carbonated body, and the roastiness persists in force throughout the aftertaste. I’d expect this kind of flavor to result from an imbalance of malt, but that’s not the case with the brew. It’s hop notes are just noticable enough from behind their roasty veils to make this beer the definitive Black IPA (amongst the two that I’ve sampled so far, anyway)

GT2 (9411) - Oceanside, California, USA - OCT 29, 2009
355 mL. This is awesome! Pours a dark, clear amber with a thin beige cap that has okay retentions and leaves some spotty lacing. Huge piney hop aroma with rye toast, black pepper, toffee, caramel, burnt sugar. Taste is a lot like Arrogant Bastard- huge piney and resiny hops but there is a nice heavy rye malt backing that is spicy and a bit alcoholic. Chewy, syrupy mouthfeel. This is like having a dark DIPA. Really awesome. Gotta drink it fresh though.

deyholla (9269) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 30, 2009
On tap. Poured a clear dark burgundy with an off-white head that laced nicely. Aroma had strong pine notes with undertone of both roasted malt and citrus. Flavor was more balanced with the pine notes balancing with the roasted malts.

jercraigs (9154) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 28, 2009
2009-01-24. Dark brown body with a modest beige head. (3+) Very green hop aroma, like fresh hop pellets. Lovely. (8+) Flavour has a fresh hop character up front, some dark malt in the middle, moderate bitterness throughout, lingering green hops in the aftertaste. (8+) Smooth average plus palate. Nice! Hit the right buttons at the right time. Tap at Coles Rare Beer Fest, Buffalo

arminjewell (9152) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 28, 2011
Pours dark brownish black with off white head, aroma has big pine notes to compliment the chocolate and roast present. Taste is simple, but delicious with notes of pine, some resin and citrus leading into sweet caramel, chocolate, finishing roasted and bitter.
