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

tectactoe (3099) - Michigan, USA - JAN 8, 2015
Bottle: Black pour, outlined with some dark brown. A tan head settles quickly to a thin layer. Modest lacing on the glass. Aroma of sticky pungent hops, dank, full of hemp oil & resin. Some sharp ashy roast in the back; bitter citrus, heavy herbaceous notes. Flavor is loaded with hops as well, kind of wet & spicy, but still carrying through with tons of oily, dank resins. Getting more notes of white pepper, grapefruit pith, ashy leaves, burnt roasted malt, & charcoal. Burnt. Hoppy. Oily. Finish is reminiscent of dry, over-toasted rye bread. Not bad, perhaps just a little overboard in terms of perceivable bitterness.

It pours black with a medium brown head. Lacing is significant as the head recedes from the mouth of the glass. It has a sweet citrus aroma with dried fruit elements. The aroma has touches of roasted aromas as well. The carbonation is a bit too lively for my tastes. Roasted malts dominate the taste with a bit of citrus flavor.
