The third beer in our IPA Project will be called North. I would say its closer to an India Brown Ale or maybe an India Dark Mahogany Ale, whatever. While the combination of Pale, Munich, Biscuit and Caramel. Aroma malts forms a nice bready base, this beer is dominated by a heavy dose of Centennial, Chinook and Columbus hops that lend a distinctly spicy and citrusy flavor and aroma.

(backlog) Draft at hulmeville inn. Brown pour with tan head. Pine and light citrus aromas. Flavor is citrus and pine, but no real dark tones outside of aesthetics.

DocLock (10465) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 8, 2011
Draft at Capones during Philly Beer Week. Poured dark brown with khaki head. Nose was piney resiny hops, scotch malt. Tasted assertively hoppy, with a good malt bill, sort of a middle of the road between a pale IPA and a black IPA, with good balance and a smooth finish. Nice beer, and my favorite so far from the IPA series.

Deep brownish pour off white head lots of lacing .... roasted and citrusy hop in the aroma ... taste is roasted malts and citrusy hoppy with a resiny hop and a not too strong bitterness that flows into the finish .... an average black ipa

Pours deep brown and clear with a creamy white head. Aroma was quite balanced between the hops and the malts. Earthy, piney hop aroma was complemented by roasted elements. Not overly bitter. A very solid beer that doesnt quite standout over other black IPAs.

On tap at Capones. This is a pretty run of the mill black IPA. Mahogany colored, smallish head. Lots of roast and some fruity like hops. This was the "roast IPA" type of Black IPA (against the happy Porter type), and not my favorite type. Some also goofy like milky flavors. Just meh.

On tap a Capones in Norristown. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Seems like a Black IPA. Aroma is of floral hops. Taste is dark, bitter and roasted malt with a very dry finish. Very light on the malt notes at the beginning then it goes straight to the roasted bitterness.
