Should be aliased to Black IPA IMHO!
Opaque black beer, decent pale tan head. Dry palate, slightly soft. Smooth dark malt, roast and bitterness free! Nice piney hops with a trace of tropical fruits - domintaed by that Galaxy earthy mango. Dry finish with some hop bitterness and a little dark malt bitterness finally emerging with some malt cream keeping it company!. Nice!

Brodies Birthday Fest at the King William. Think this was labelled ’American Black’? Opaque black beer that shows some red - brown at the edges. Residual tan head. Smooth palate with a tiny bit of carbonation. Smooth dark malt, robust but not bitter or roasty. Piney hops but the Galaxy hops also provide fresh zingy tropical fruits. Semi dry finish. A rich and tasty Black IPA and I thoroughly enjoyed my pint and the sneak preview of this the previous night - Cheers Jonathan!
Cask. Dark maroon colo, tiny beige head. Aroma of pine > tropical fruit. Taste is pine, lemon rind. Very nice.
