COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Black IPA fuses speciality malts with a tropical punch bowl of new world hops to deliver a contradictory yet cultured concoction. A classically ‘pale’ aroma and quenchingly fruity palate belies a broodingly dark and deceptive appearance. Can a beer be both ‘black and pale’? Time to consult the Magic 8 Ball.

Bottle, bought @ Mybrewerytap.
Almost completely black with soft brown edges. Lovely, staying, creamy, light-beige head. Really lovely looking. Aroma has coffee, light roasted malts, some chocolate. Lots of good piney, fruity hops. Apricot, oranges, peach. Medium to low carbonation, great creamy and quite dry mouthfeel. Flavour is fat and malty, roasted, good deal of coffee. Great bitter finish, with piney, herbal and fruity hops notes. Very lovely.

Opaque black beer, tidy tan head. Crispy palate. Nice mellow dark malts with an undertone of toffee. Well integrated pine hops. Red berry fruits with mild orange hops. The lovely toffee dark malt comes back and rounds things off nicely. Semi dry finish. Great black IPA.

Sampled @ Borefts 2014. Dark brown color, small to average sized off-white head. Aroma is a bit faint, but that might be due to cold serving temperatures. Taste malts, dark malts, lightly some roast, nicely hoppy, nicely bitter. Quite good! Medium body and carbonation. Nice one!

[email protected] craft & co London. Small redblack. Intense resinous pine grass herbal Earthy notes. Great lingering pleasant bitterness. Full mouthfeel with absence of roasted malts, so the black malts more for the colour. Super brew.
