This American-style Black IPA is nearly jet black and perceived to have high hop bitterness, flavor and aroma with medium-high alcohol content, balanced with a medium body. The appearance may trick you into thinking you are about to enjoy a traditional stout beer when in fact your senses are about to be overwhelmed with our Black IPA. Juicy, fruity, floral, and pine from Pacific Northwest hops gives the beer a classic West Coast IPA hop character. The Black IPA is further characterized by a balanced and moderate degree of caramel malt and subdued dark roasted malt flavor and aroma. 7.2% ABV, 85 Hops used: Warrior, Citra, Cascade

My 2,000th Rate. Bottle, Beer Moth, Manchester. Deep dark brown pour with a small tan head. Citrus hop and dark malts protruded from the beak. Flavour-wise there were notes of pine, chocolate, malts, orange and booze. Decent balance struck. Full bodied and smooth mouthfeel. Plenty to like here and a very solid Black IPA. Im rarely disappointed in the output from this brewery and this is no exception. Cheers!

This is a pretty solid black IPA, though its very roasty. Enough hops with a fairly thick body. Good stuff.

Ferris (14104) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 23, 2014
Bottle - Piney hops and some light roast. Jet black with a nice rich beige head. Grapefruit, pine and burnt toast. With the big flavors this is surprisingly well balanced and subdued. Very nicely done.

BOSSbrewer (2705) - Arkansas, USA - OCT 21, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours very dark brown with one finger of tan head. Aroma is slightly roasty pine and slight citrus hoppiness. Flavor follows with slight caramel. Medium bodied. Finishes dry and bitter. Very smooth beer. I'm not a fan of the style but this is a good one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

czar (8708) - Qubec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 15, 2014
pours unclear dark brown, red hue, with a nice light beige head, reviving and leaving very nice lacing. mint and tangerine skin, earl grey tea leaves, chocolate-coated fresh roasted coffee beans, luscious chocolate, some sweetness - lactose, very ncie roasted profile, touch of tropical notes. light carbonation, medium body - oily, almost balanced resinous-citrusy finish. just a tad heavy but very tasty.

Botella de 65 cl en el momento en el lpulo el 19-09-2014. color negro intenso con espuma beige persistente. Aromas frescos herbceos lupulados al principio con ligeras maltas tostadas. Cuerpo medio de 7.2 vol fcil de beber y paso ligero por boca. Sabores intensos algo tostados y bastante herbceos de lpulos frescos. Bastante buena aunque con no mucho amargor final. Para repetir.

Good retention and medium lacing. Smells of molasses, roasted caramel and floral. Tastes of roasted malts, floral and bitter hop resin. Bitter aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Creamy head, hoppy aroma. First it hits you with a coffee note then it goes along with a classic citrussy taste. Moderate sweetness, medium biterness. Creamier than Raven from Thornbridge which is good. This is how black ipa should be done. Very good!

Re-he-Healy loved the hop combo used here, as well as the Carmel malt atop the black roasted and chocolate. Hop leaning, which is just fine by me, and the most grapefruity citric yummy black ipa Ive tried in some time."
