COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

gnashville (4) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 26, 2014 does not count
Pours deep black with a creamy off white head that dissipates fairly quickly. Faint roasted notes and a whiff of hops on the nose. This follows through well into the palate with a nice dark chocolate bitterness, though it is slightly one noted. This doesn’t detract too much as it’s a great note. The finish is somewhat creamy with a hint of sweetness. Perfect weight and mouthfeel. Slickity do da day. On tap at The Guild Freehouse.

Slipstream (2651) - USA - JUL 25, 2014
The piny, floral aroma is rich but not too aggressive. The flavor contains pine, tobacco, resin, rye, and wheat bran. It is smoky, lightly acidic, and nicely balanced with no screwy sweet notes. Black IPA isn’t my favorite style, but this is a good one.

Torrefacto (1677) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUL 18, 2014
Color caoba oscuro con densa espuma beige. Aromas de frutas tropicales, pino y tostados. Cuerpo medio con inicio afrutado y lúpulo "picante" con un final amargo, seco y resinoso. Excelente.
