Hazy brown color. Bright, meaty, interesting aromas of chocolate fondue, roasted mangos and grapefruits, and soy with a soft, finely carbonated, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a tingling, long pepper, chive muffin, chicory coffee, and white ash finish. A robust and flavorful black IPA with pleasant smoky roastiness.

American style black ales are dark brown to black in color and range in alcohol from 6-8%. This style is also known as Cascadian dark ale or black India pale ale. These beers feature an intense hop aroma and flavor that is balanced by roasted chocolate and caramel malt notes. Originating in the Pacific Northwest, this relatively new style has quickly gained popularity amongst US craft brewers and IPA fans alike.

Noteworthy examples of this style include: Stone Sublimely Self-Righteous Black IPA, Full Sail Brewing Bump in the Night Cascadian Dark Ale, Samuel Adams Dark Depths Baltic IPA and Lakefront Brewery Lakefront IBA.
