Hop Noir is a delectable Black IPA, dripping with piney, aromatic Centennial hops. The malt base is dark and rich, anchored by organic black malt. This provides a strong foundation for the extravagant kettle hopping and dry-hopping that this beer experiences. Enjoy with a night-light.

Bottle at home in CT, USA. Pours black with a creamy, beige cap. Big pine and grass hop nose, with decent roast, too. Medium sweet flavor with heavy grassy bitterness, heavy roasted malts and burnt cocoa. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Fairly dry on the finish, with burnt wood, charred malts and roast, pine, mild oily resins and grass. Lingering bitter roast and grass. A very decent black IPA.

Draft at NOVA BrewFest. Poured a dark, almost black color with a dark tan, almost brown colored head. Aroma was citrus malts, nice lightly roasted and sweet malt balance. Flavor was citrus and pine hops, with a nice malty balance to it. Enjoyable.

Why is it so hard to make a decent black IPA? Seriously? I mean, this is ok, but that’s about it.

a nice full nose with chocolate hints and coffee. the flavor was a bit mild and a hoppy finish that doesn’t really deliver enough hops for the style

kerenmk (5169) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUN 5, 2012
Bottle sample at a tasting in our place. Thanks beerandbeyond. Pours black, opaque, tan head. Wine and sycamore aroma, soft bitterness, a little roast and wine taste. Medium body, soft carbonation, roasty finish.

BREWMUSKCLES (2744) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 4, 2012
piney and a bit on the mellow side with some smoke in a bit of salt. a little grapefruit and not much malt that you can discern but the smoke is where that is at. acrid, salt and hop and i like this brew. The body is a 3.5 on the scale of 1 to 10, it is refreshing.

DSG (15237) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUN 3, 2012
Bottle sample at a tasting at kerenmk’s place. Thanks beerandbeyond. Dark brown. Aroma has a bit of dark fruits, a bit of old hops and some roastiness. Sweetish roasty flavor with a bitter finish. Medium-bodied. OK.

PhatB420 (855) - Pittsfield, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 23, 2012
12oz into a tulip. Pours a coal black with a brown laced head the rings around the top. Taste is dark chocolate, malty extravagence, and hoppy interludes between an ipa, porter and a black lager. Not the best blakc ipa out there, but certaintly not the worst. the abv is well hidden here, so watch out. Aroma is hoppy, dark choco, cocoa, and roasted fig. Aftertaste is slight bitter, dry, hoppy, and full bodied. A nice offering from peaks and the great state of Maine.

bhensonb (15760) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 8, 2012
Bottle from Half Time. Pours dark brown with a creamy light tan head. Mixed aroma of resin and cat pee. Near med body. Flavor is mild chocolate with resin and a touch of citrus. It’s dry and hoppy. Not harshly hoppy, but hoppy. The finish is ashy chocolate and a lot of hop. Pretty nicely done.
