Notes/Commercial Description:
Discord Dark IPA celebrates the marriage of two distinct flavors, the Dark Ale and the IPA. The traditional bitterness of an IPA is juxtaposed against a black malt canvas, creating an ale that keeps your taste buds working to discover all of the unique flavors imparted by the 5 different hops and malts.

A - Poured out a really dark brown with a ruby tint to it, explosive 2 finger of thick bubbly khakhi head, mild lacing.
S - Lots of dark fruit, some complex malt background, a touch of medicinal smell, and some earthy hops.
T - Taste follows a lot like the aroma, lots of big dark fruit taste, a touch of it is tart, then you get some dark toasted caramel, some sweeter candied kinda malt, a little bit of odd spice underneath.
M - Weird, a touch too carbonated, and papery dry bitterness.
O - Definitely complex, but it seems like this one is a little too weird, I dont think its a bad take on a black IPA, but it doesnt really have any dark roasted traits.

Pours a black color. 3/2 inch head of an off-tan color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of roasted malt, sweet malt, hops, citrus hops, pine, spice, and a hint of alcohol. Fits the style of an American Black Ale. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with a very high carbonation level. Tastes of hops, roasted malt, sweet malt, alcohol, hint of pale malt, slight pine, and caramel malt. Overall, good appearance, aroma, and blend, but the high carbonation is quite unfavorable.

Great head retention. Dark brown hue, just barely allows light to penetrate. Mild Pacific Northwest hop aroma. Hops on the front of the palate, a rush of dark malt, and a flourish of hops on the finish. Pretty good in the spectrum of dark IPA's I've tried this is above average.
