Black IPA: A new style for me, this is in fact a dark IPA. Top fermented with insane hops but with dark roasted malt. Insane Jack!

A - almost bock or dunkelweiss in appearance. Medium head.
S - lots going on: citrus, malt, oatmeal, cafe au lait
T - like a berry/citrus cocktail with a dose of roasted coffee
M - medium body with great presence of hops
D - goes down balanced and easy without oppressive tannins

A surprising style, and on I enjoyed. It tastes like a dunkelweiss or even a bock but with some unique characteristics. Please someone else try this beer and review it because I sound insane on my review (lemon and oatmeal and coffee?!?!?!?)

On draft at the Deschutes Brewpub, Portland, Oregon.

Poured a deep black hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was good retention and lacing,

The smell featured a citrusy hop and a touch of dry coffee.

The taste consisted of a full blown citrus hop with an abundance of roasted barley at the finish.

The mouthfeel was typical of the style.

Overall a unique hop forward IPA.

Cascadian Dark Ale with 62 IBUs from Brewer's Gold, Cascade and Centennial Hops.

Appearance is a very dark brown with a tight, creamy dark tan head leaving scattered lace.

Smell is super pungent hops, wow! Fresh citrus, very dank herbal hop punch for sure.

Taste is also all about the hops, resinous, citrus, strong bitterness, very intense. So much so that I had trouble finding the dark malts, although once my palate adjusted a bit to the hop smack down, some acrid char from black patent malts peaked through, particularly on the finish.

Mouthfeel is very creamy, dry, with a medium body.

Drinkability isn't too bad, but it's an abrasively hoppy beer, and the 10 oz glass I had was plenty (they replaced there generic schooner with a logo'd, footed pil flute). While I love huge, fresh hops, this was lacking the mellow maltiness of other CDAs, such as caramel and chocolate. Rather, the bitterness was accentuated by the acrid black malt.
