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.

My wife picked-up this one for me. I have to thank her!

Pouted into my Samuel Smith Pint glass, the beer is black with brown highlights. It has a pretty impressive tan head and lacing.

The smell is a nice combo of pine and citrus with a little bit of roasted malts.

It’s a got a bit of a bite which I liked. Pine resin leads but there is a sturdy malt backbone with nice roasted qualities. There is just a hint of coffee and chocolate from the roasted malts.

The mouth is perfect. A bit oily and coating.

Overall, another great beer from Revolution. I would love to try this on tap.

Only BLACK IPA I've ever had that actually tastes like a great IPA as opposed a Stout with an IPA label slapped on the bottle for marketing purposes.
