This is not so interesting a black ale, to me. It looks a lot thinner than any black ale I have seen, to date. Flavor profile is...okay. A lot of this really strikes me more as a brown ale than a black ale. There are some hop characteristics that pop in at the end of this, but it really isn't enough to save the experience. A nice "beer" to drink, but not really all that great as a black ale.

I picked this one up at the brewery in Hood River late last spring. I would say it has stood the test of time rather well. Poured in to a pint glass.

Pours a black walnut color and is translucent with a modest off-white head.

Smell is a mild hoppy sour citrus aroma, with a hint of smoke along side.

Taste is very good, a citrus grapefruit flavor, with a bitetr charcoal flavor on the finish.

Mouthfeel is crisp and clean, with a dry charcoal aftertaste.

Overall a very nice drinkable IPA, and the dark roasted flavors are a nice twist. I'm still coming to grips with the style, but this one is very good.
