Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

The beer pours a pitch black color with a thick frothy tan head that slowly fades to lacing. The aroma is good. It has a solid roasted and black malt scent along with a nice piney hop nose. The black malt bitterness and the hops compliment each other. The taste is great! It has a bitter hop bite that jumps up and grabs you. It's followed by an excellent malt base that's adds balance and complexity. The black malts provide their own bitterness as well as a roasted/earthy feel. The mouthfeel is fine. It's a full bodied beer with adequate carbonation. This is a delicious black IPA. It's complex while maintaining a high drinkability.

22oz bomber: this one pours a dark chocolate brown color. There was about a finger of a tan head on it that didn’t linger long. It has a surprisingly lighter nose. Malts, but not much sweetness at all. Perhaps a bit of chocolate roast and pine. It tastes OK, but I’m not sure why they call it a black IPA. Almost no bitterness to it. There is a good malt body, with some chocolate and roasted notes trying to peak thru but no real sweetness either. It needs a whole lot more hops to be in an IPA category. Let’s just call it a very good strong porter.
