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

fiulijn (21022) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 1, 2014
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Dark brown color, near black, with creamy head. Aroma of boutique coffee, mild and fresh. Smooth mouthfeel; roasted malt and coffee flavor, dark but not burnt, with light residual sweetness, traces of roasted nuts; strong bitterness, with hop resins hidden by rising hop character.
A good beer, somehow different from other Black IPAs, but doesn’t get me too excited.
