Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Jaycase on 02-28-2014

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.

Revolution Brewing Jukebox Hero, I'm into this one after the pour into my new IPA glass, I'm sold. Pours a dark almost pitch black with brown ruby highlights around the base of the glass, light cream khaki head forms thick and to the point fine lacing speckled evenly.

Aroma has dark green pine, citrus pith, crushed aspirin, earthiness blended with mild dark chocolate like an herbal mint chocolate Andes chocolate notes.

Flavor creamy dark chocolate, upfront bitter hops earthy piney floral notes a bit of citrus peel in the back end, I can tell this has a bit of age on it no dating on the bottle it must have rubbed off mysteriously. Super solid reasonably drinkable style of black IPA.

Mouthfeel is solid creamy textured slight hop oils, with even flowing carbonation going down. Medium bodied ale, smooth going down on the palate.

Overall, a very tasty option from Chicago, looks like something I would like to drink.

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.
