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.

Bomber > Bow-tie pint

A - More of a dark brown than black, just shy of a full finger of khaki foamy head, thick lacing.
S - Aroma has some lighter roasted traits, toasted caramel and toffee, then a nice array of fruit, papaya, melon, peach, even a little banana.
T - Takes a step down in the flavor department, some burnt traits come through lightly then hang on to the end with some aggressive pine hop bite, sweet toasted caramel malt, orange juice, a little lemon zest.
M - Well carbonated and very balanced in feel, goes down easy too.
O - Really good black IPA, aroma has all the good stuff, flavor is good too, just doesnt match up the aroma as good as it should.

This one has a nice fruity tone with a minimal hop spiced edge. This is how I like my black ales: smooth and easy drinking, with just a hint of fruit and a non-abrasive degree of hop influence. Well balanced. I like it. Another good one from Revolution.
