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.

Pours a dark brown, almost black color with an off white head and plenty of lacing. The brew smells roasted and charcoal like but also very hoppy with pine and floral notes. In the taste, chocolate maltyness and a strong piney hop presence. The brew leans towards the bitter side, but it is one tasty brew. Strong hop flavor and cocoa. Medium bodied, well carbonated brew that spent a week in the growler. Overall, a very nice American Black Ale.

22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours crystal clear very dark reddish brown color with a 2 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, papaya, lemon zest, orange peel, floral, grass, light pine, toast, light chocolate, and floral/grassy earthiness. Fantastic aromas with great complexity of juicy citrus/tropical hops with a light roasted malt presence; with great strength. Taste of big tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, papaya, lemon zest, orange peel, floral, grass, light pine, toast, chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, and floral/grassy earthiness. Fair amount of floral/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, papaya, lemon zest, orange peel, floral, grass, light pine, toast, chocolate, cocoa, roast, and floral/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity of juicy citrus/tropical hops with moderate roasted malt balance; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, moderately sticky, and slightly chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent black IPA. All around great complexity of juicy citrus/tropical hops and moderate roasted malt balance; and very smooth to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.
