Our black IPA is bursting with crisp, clean bitterness and layers of wonderful American hop character. Pale Ale, Munich and Naked Golden Oats give a toasty malt backbone with a smooth mouthfeel. The dark ominous color comes from the Chocolate Malt and the de-husked highly roasted malt. We want the layers of hops to shine against this roasty malt backdrop. Warrior, Citra, Chinook, Centennial and Amarillo lend bitterness as well as a wonderful cornucopia of aromas and flavors of fresh citrus fruit, pine, fresh cut mint and fresh flowers they offer.

Pours very dark coffee brown, almost opaque, nice foamy tan head. Aroma starts out hoppy, then adds a hint of the roasted malts to come. The taste is dominated by the dry/resinous hops, but the dark roasted grains form the underling structure. Palate is clean, with roasted grains lingering and final bitter kick from the hops. Overall, nice IPA with the added attraction of some dark roasted malt notes. Better than expected.

Pretty well balanced bipa. It's interesting. Each can presents a different story it seems. Had one 2 days prior and it presented a intense IPA aroma. Tonight so much more roast and dark malts are coming through and the "IPA" character is taking a back seat. Either way she's a good bipa. Revolution rarely disappoints. Good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

What a pleasant surprise. Really a nice balance between roasted malts, chocolate sweetness and hop bite. Quite a complex beer.

Dang, it taken me a while to figure it out, but finally I can say Im not a huge fan of pink resin. A little goes a long way. This is a bit too heavy in that department for my taste.

At work holiday party. Unlike others in the style this new when to quit. Not too bitter due to roastedness, not too hoppy. Decent stuff. Serving: Bottle

Purchased at Bottles and Cans in Chicago, IL; enjoyed at home on the first night of December which seems crazy to me right now. Appearance is pitch black with a huge billowy off white head. Aroma of chocolate and hops. Taste is fantastic, relatively straight forward black IPA, just done exceptionally well. Highly recommended.

sawbuck (669) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - NOV 30, 2016
Aroma of fresh pine and some roasted malt. Ebony color with a huge light tan head. Sweet coffee malt up front, Nice crisp roasty tone, with an immediate jolt of fresh piney hops. Malt has layers of dark chocolate and espresso. Bitterness builds on the finish. Slightly dry, not overpowering. Medium to light mouthfeel. Nice beer
