COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Cascadian Dark Ale, otherwise know as our Double Black IPA, emerged stylistically from the Pacific North West. It has an IPA backbone with a "special blend" of choice roasted malts combined with a hard hitting matchup of hops, knocking this beer into a new weight class. Dry hopped and unfiltered for maximum flavor and punch. Enjoy it with a trainer!

Semi-sweet chocolate and toasted almond dominate from start to finish. Bitterness (85 IBU hard to believe), citrus, pine and floral notes could kicked be up a notch or two. Good.

rjplumer (1018) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 22, 2015
Dark fruit malt aroma. Black body with a light tan head. Roasted malt character with a light bitter sweet fruit to balance things out. Heavy mouth feel. Although not bad but not really to my personal liking.

Bebum (806) - USA - JUL 15, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 10, 2016 Opaque, tan and fluffy head. Intense and complex nose. Very full body, intense flavor, silky texture, hot mouthfeel with abundant carbonation, lingering palate, tasty and balanced finish. Sweet, bitter, crisp, well balanced. Roast flavors predominate, as expected, tar, coffee, milk chocolate, lactose, hoppy, yeasty, resiny, malty. Superb, what a discovery! And a local brewery.
