This ale pours a dark brown almost black hue with a large and lasting light tan head. The aroma is malty with some notes of coffee and chocolate. This one sips light and smooth for an ale with its abv. The flavor is almost reminiscent of root beer with a sweet roasty maltiness accented by notes of vanilla, coffee, and creme soda. This is by no means a bad black ipa but given some of the other offerings out there, it makes one wonder why you would try this witb so many much better offerings out there.

A: The beer is black when viewed from afar but is clear, very dark amber in color with no visible carbonation. It poured with a short tan head that died down, leaving lacing on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of dark roasted malts are present in the nose along with faint hints of resins from the hops.
T: The taste very much follows the smell and has prominent flavors of roasted malts along with a moderate amount of bitterness and associated hints of pine resin malts.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little crisp on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I really liked this Cascadian IPA because it had an excellent balance between the malts and hops.
