This is a very good example of a Cascadian Black Ale. Not to be a dick, but this isn't a black ipa, per se. Great rich and deep hop character in a very black ale kinda way. Great feel. Wonderful drinker. This is my last beer from Fairhope and I ended on a high note. Really nice. Love how it remains more subtle as opposed to a punch in the mouth.

The Painted Black IPA is one of the first examples of this new style to emerge from the South. It combines the dark-as-night color of a stout with a prominent "Northwest" hop aroma — citrusy, piney, and resinous. The body has some sweet malt flavors, with just a hint of roastiness and toasted malt. (7% ABV)
