Interesting beer. Poured like dark coffee into the glass with a 1/2 inch head of mocha foam, dark red notes when light shines through the beer. Aromas of citrus blend with roasted barley, coffee and cocoa. The hop bitterness hits the front of the tongue as you taste it, followed by coffee and roasted malt. Sits a bit heavy on the tongue for a black IPA, but listed as an an American Black Ale, it's on the mark. Overall, a very good beer.

My favorite One Trick Pony brew, and my favorite black IPA or as they say Cascadian Dark Ale). Either way a delicious brew that epitomizes the style. Smoke, hops and good as it gets.

This Black IPA has a rich but not overbearing flavor, it has just the right hop bite and a slight smokey flavor. Thanks to the Amarillo hops the aroma enhances the taste perfectly. This Black IPA does not go down too heavy like other brewers Black IPAs do. They brew this beer frequently but it is so popular never last long enough. A true treasure from a smaller craft brewer.

Served on tap.

A - Jet black in color with a minimal dark tan head. Left soft lacing after each sip.

S - Hops are dominant with real nice citrus and somewhat floral nose to it.

T - Follows the nose with the strong citrus flavors, but packs a perfectly roasted character to even it out. Superbly balanced and delicious.

M - Full, creamy, and smooth.

O - This is one of my favorite styles, and this happens to be one of the best examples of the style I've come across.
