22 oz. bottle from Whole Foods in Bellevue. Nice dark brown, almost black, appearance. This beer has a thin, and yet, wispy head. A little roast is complimented by a nice orange citrus hop aroma. The aroma is quite pungent, and nice. Very roasted at first, but the roast is soon dominated by the hop flavor, which actually has a pine taste, instead of a citrus taste. The beer is rather dry, and the roast mixes well with the aforementioned hop flavor. This has a bit of a milky flavor, as well. This is pretty good, and has a nice lingering bitterness, which pleases me.

Tap @ Noble Fir. Dark ruby brown clear pour with a short white head leaving a coarse lace. Nose predicts the body: fresh citrus and pine hops and dark-roasted malt. Medium, moderately carbonated body has flavors of pine, burnt caramel, slight baker’s chocolate and a nice cane sugar sweetness emerges as the ale warms. Secession finishes with a slight citrus tartness and a long coffee and pine bitterness. A solid black IPA from an exceptional organic craft brewer.

Sasparilla black body with browned froth head. Lovely merging of carafa roast and cascade hops. Clean, de-bittered roast presence with rolling waves of floral cascade goodness and chocolate undertones. The finish is also Cascade juicy bitterness.

draft. deep brown with cola colored edges and a tan head. up front it’s licorice astringent black patent and roast with cheesecloth yeast / hop character... so it has the bitterness of the roasts grains with an oily soy sauce flavor, and a terribly thinning and acidic / fizzy texture. weak malt structre throughout, and lacks pretty much any aromatic hop character expected in IPA.

Pours darker than their stout. Nice, interesting citrus/pine hop aroma, matched in the flavor, which adds some roastiness. Nice - best on their taplist aside from the IPA.

Thanks Kevin for sharing this brew! A- Body is an opaque dark brown hue that pours with a foamy 2 finger off white head. Plenty of lacing is left down the glass. S- Nose is very earthy, herbal, grassy, and mossy with a hint of roasted malt in the background. T- Taste is very similar to the smell. This is a hoppy beer indeed-but more the medicinal, herbal remedy, hippie, going green type hop than the bright american hop profile that I am used to. A very faint roasted malt backbone is there-but the highlight here is the hops. M- Carbonation is soft with a medium weight body. D- This is probably more earthy than unearthly. Certainly a different, atypical type of IPA. If I was into the more earthy hop I would love this brew-but I like my hoppy beers bright or floral. Still a decent beer overall.

My favorite black IPA (besides the ones I’ve brewed myself). Hopworks doesn’t go overboard with roasty flavors, nor to they make a ful-bodied caramelly mess like many other black IPA’s I’ve had. This one hits the right balance of hops, malt, and roast. I’ve had this at Hopworks, though, and never from a bottle, so I can’t say how it ages.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - SEP 9, 2010
Bottle: Black color with a light head. The nose is grassy and hoppy with a dry roasted malt note. The flavor shows more roasted malts than hops and it seems a little disconnected. Interesting though, the black IPAs are proving not to be so easy to brew.

Tap. Black, roast and citrus aroma. Pretty big hop flavor then nice roast going on. Yum BIPA!

(22oz bottle, courtesy of AmEricanbrew) Pours a mahogany body with a medium beige head. Aroma of roasted grain, grapefruit, and herbs. Flavor of roasted malt, citrus, grass, caramel malt, and pine with a moderately bitter finish.
