3.98/5 rDev -3.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance: dark brown, big layer of tan spongey foam, good head retention
Aroma: citrusy/piney hops, fresh cut grass, caramel, and a chocolatey undertone
Flavor: medium malt sweetness that first breaks with the citrusy hops and then with a mellow roast bitterness; finishes semi-dry with a lingering roast and grapefruit rind aftertaste
Mouthfeel: medium body, gentle carbonation, silky texture
Other comments: This is one of my top 5 favorite beer styles at the moment and I'm proud to live in the Pacific NW, where it originated. And I firmly support the CDA naming convention as opposed to "Black IPA".
Serving type: bottle

A: Black with a creamy lightish brown head.
S: Lots of floral and citric hops in the nose, and maybe just a touch of roasted malt, coffee, and dark chocolate.
T: Tons of pine and floral hops, yet not overly bitter, some citrus, some coffee and roasted malt. Hop heavy.
M: Smooth and full bodied, a bit creamy.
O: A great example of the style, and one of my favorites from Deschutes.
