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

onceblind (8897) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 13, 2013
Clear dark dark brown with a lovely aroma of herbal and grassy hops with dark sweet burnt caramel and roasty black malts. Flavor has some nice bitterness up front with some acidic pine and grapefruit, followed by some toastiness and roasted black malt. Sweet overall with a nice balancing resinous bitterness. Delightful.

Ibrew2or3 (8493) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 15, 2014
22oz bomber pours with a nice dark body that supports a mocha colored head of foam. The aroma offers up modest yet playful juicy hops mixing with dark roasted malts and chocolate brownie. Yes! Smells great. The taste starts with dark roasted malts to some burnt malts that are blended with a modest yet nicely balanced array of citrus hops and spicy dank onion like hoppiness. This is all going so well together as some chocolate surfaces into the finish. This isnt a huge rich Black IPA but it has plenty of flavor and hop to malty balance. Nice.

1pt. 9fl.oz., Best By 07/21/14
Dark in the glass with a very nice beige head. The nose is floral and some kind of dark. The beer starts intense floral hopped, very nice with hints of pine and resin. In the mainpart there comes the roasted aroma, espresso, roasted bread. This mix of aroma is great. In the aftertaste there is a nice bitter note, which adds to the slightly sweet body a nice counterpart. The aftertaste is long - very floral with nice roasted aroma together with a nice moderate bitterness. And at 7.2% still highly drinkable.
A very great Black IPA! --> 14/13/14/15

Small pour from a bottle. Pours clear black with a medium tan head and great lacing. Aroma is strong pine, dank wet leaves, perhaps a touch of roast. Medium sweet, light bitter, a lot of pine, some citrus, some malty notes, but not a lot of, well, black in this one; very light roasty notes are in there, but you have to be looking for them to notice. Medium body, Meh.
