COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A pinch of black malt and a splash of roasted barley break this IPA apart from tradition, Cascadian Dark. Join the shady revolution.

Not a lot of hops in the aroma. Nice black color. Flavor isn’t overly hoppsy, but is in fact pretty tasty. A bit chewy. Good beer.

Bottle from Safeway. Dark red-black, clear pour, with tan head which fades to a moderate coarse lace. Slightly chemical aroma, with an unusual mix of spruce, pepper and toasted malt in a light body. Mouth feel is lightweight. Not smooth enough or low-enough ABV for a session beer, and the overall impression is ’interesting for one pint and then move on.’

12 oz. bottle- Pours almost black with a thin tan head and good lacing, aroma is spruce and grass. The flavor is not as hoppy as I was expecting, it has a sweet malt with some bitterness and a roasted flavor, it is very good though.

Very interesting to say the least. Gives the impression that it will be roasty and slightly astringent...comes across as a bit of roast, quite a bit of bitterness, however lacking in the aroma hop department. Definite spice in the aroma and also a bit of a harsh finish. I really wanted to like this beer, however maybe it’s just the style that I don’t get.

BarZigKin (511) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - MAR 14, 2010
12oz bottle from Specs. Pours a deep brown body with mahogany highlights. Little head, but, lots of sticky lacing left. Aroma is light spruce and some malty sweetness. Flavor is an odd mix of very light roastiness, some pine hops, a bit of light chocolate malt and light sweetness. Thin to medium mouthfeel and a short (hop) bitter finish. Interesting.

BrewingFan (251) - Texas, USA - MAR 13, 2010
Interesting mix of earthy hops and chocolate roasted malt. Almost Pitch Black with a tan bubbly head. Taste is equally as interesting, smooth malty with a good bitterness presence. Lighter bodied than expected, very smooth and finishes with a bitter residue in the mouth. I like new things and this tickles my fancy.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - MAR 12, 2010
Not a bad beer. Signs of hops are pronounced in the aroma and flavor. A little thin up the back but decently balanced. I was looking for somehting a little more extreme I guess.

BOLTZ7555 (2823) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAR 11, 2010
Toasted malt, herbal/resinous hops, and little breadiness. Dark almond pour with a small eggshell head. Medium mouthfeel...inexpensive and tasty!!!

Sampled in a 12 oz. Pours dark black. Doesnt have too much of an IPA taste. Pours with a lot of head and bubbles. Drinks really nice and smooth, crisp aftertaste.
