Blacklight IPA is a hop-forward, sessionable 4.2 percent ABV black ale with a heavy dose of five different hop varieties and stained black with cold-steeped dark malts. The beer focuses on big hop flavor and aroma, without the harsh bitterness and heavy roast that the beer’s dark color suggests.

Pours cola brown with a creamy off-white head. Aroma of pine and roasted malt. Watered down flavor with hints of roasted malt, pine, and hint of grapefruit. A bit disappointed as I usually really enjoy Widmer beers.

Bomber picked up at a random Safeway. Bitchin label. Pours a muddy reddish brown/black with a head that disappears immediately. Black ipa’s always smell like dirt to me. Some fruity hop aroma, and earthy dirt. Pretty astringent flavor. Watery, astringent, and it won’t even get me drunk. Not my style.

On tap at Widmer, pours a dark copper brown with a small beige head. Aroma smells very English-style, with biscuity malt and very mild English hops. Flavour is very restrained and mild, with an interesting mix of hop varieties. Very light and sessionable. Pleasant but boring.

Mora2000 (5664) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JUL 9, 2014
Dark brown pour with a white head. The aroma has some pine and dark malt notes. The flavor is smiler. I get some bitter pine as well as some black malt and medium bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

On tap at Capitol Beer & Tap Room. Pours near black with a decent tan head and a treacle aroma. There is a medium-bodied dark malt flavor with a bitter finish.
