Dark gold slightly hazy beer with decent white head on top.

Aroma is citrusy american hops blended with some gentle malt sweetness. No smoke on the nose, you could trick your friends so far into thinking its a normal DIPA.

Tobacco leaf smokiness hits the palate, not like a freight train but certainly not like someone thats adverse to second hand smoke. Crisp, smokey and acrid on the tongue quickly runs straight into a wall of flavor composed of citrusy bright american hops and more of the malt sweetness.

You know what? It works! I don't like Black IPAs, I don't like roasted malt mixed with citrus hops, but this blend tastes great to me. The acrid dryness of the smoked malt lays down a bright white canvas for the american hops to paint on.

The mouthfeel is thick and sticky which works perfect for the vastly differeng flavors at play. Heavy duty canvas carries the bold flavors. The acrid earthy-smoke of the smoked grain plays on top of cisrusy hops dancing in a decedently thick malt body. Excellent.

Serving type: on-tap

Smoked IPA? Had to try that.

Orange and brown with a citrus/pine aroma marked with a hint of smoke. Taste was much like the smell with more pronounced smokiness on the finish. The mouthfeel was oily with a srtong, dry finish. A very cool combination that I've never seen, nice play on words with rauch and very pleased to see Ska's name appear in Ohio.

A smoked double IPA? Sign me up.

This pours a hazy straw-orange with cottony clouds.

Smoke and a candied orange hop compete in the aroma for attention.

The flavor hits with a hoppy orange preserve piney punch, followed by a touch of campfire smoke. As a concept it’s one I’d like to see more of.
