#3000 for me. 3-1-11
This is one of the tastiest CDA or beers out there. Over the years I have talked beer and have come up with some of my all time favs. This is one of the all times for me.
Dark brown in color, clear with a thin tan head. Nice dark malt and hops aroma. Lots of good Malt and caramel and chocolate malts mixed with the big hops. HUB does one kiss ass beer here. This will go down as one of the best. Great finish it is hard not to order another. A must for any CDA fan.
Shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. Poured a very dark brown tending toward black with big foamy tan head. The nose is citrus and floral hops, Medium to full in body with a resin mouthfeel. The flavor is well roasted malts with a big hop set of flavors including pine, citrus, and flowers. There is a nice bitterness that carries over into the finish. To me this sort of defines what a black IPA should do with a great balance between the roasted malts and hops. Very nice. DialSquare (5028) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 23, 2014

Bottle thanks to thirdeye11. The smell is malts, hops, more malts, roasty, and slight chocolate. The look is brown, clear, not much head. The taste is hops, slight malts, more fruits.

Sample tray. Dark copper. Nice dance of malt and hops in the nose. Chocolate malt, nuttiness, light cinamon and hop flavour. IndianaRed (4609) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 27, 2014
On Tap at the River Room, Whole Foods, Boise. Clear dark redish brown. Dense tan head. Muted faint aromas of light west coast citrusy hops and a touch of toasted malt. Flavor is definiately down a notch from standard CDAs in its sessionability but it i still and nice example of the style. MrChopin (4304) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 11, 2010
Bottle thanks to olympuszymurgus!Transparent dark brown, red highlights. Dank mint, earthy nose of light flour. Flavor is more malt up front, light green bitterness and pine with something that reminds me of cat litter. Very salty, piney earth finish. Light profile throughout, nothing dominates the other elements, but then again there isn’t much here. shoulderbroken (4255) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUN 20, 2016
Tap at Craft Beer Creek. Quite malty for black IPA, hops toned down, some caramel, little spiciness. Hops are citrusy, some resin. Alright

Tap from Organic Brewers Fest... Poured deep brown with an off-white head. Hoppy, wood-like aroma. A little acidic but a nice hoppy tone. A little bit of toasty malts. Sweet, bread-like finish.
