Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

Served in a tulip pint glass at Beelow's.

Had some time to kill between flicks, so I figured I'd grab a pint or two at Beelow's, starting with this one. It pours a deep midnight garnet topped by a finger of wan slate foam. The nose comprises pine resin, blackened pretzels, and a touch of dark chocolate syrup. The taste opens with a gush of pine resin, pine needles, and a hint of grapefruit peel. This is then followed by a comparatively mild (very mild, in fact) wave of pretzel, chocolate malt, and char. Surprisingly, especially given those descriptors, the combination is fairly pleasant, if decidedly unbalanced. The body is a lithe medium, with a light moderated carbonation and a sorta/kinda drying finish. Overall, not a bad quaff, too unbalanced to be a great black IPA, but something in the category I may actually want to have again.
