Rich walnut color. Roasted aromas and flavors of mocha, dark toasted pumpernickel, chocolate orange peel, and pine forest with a supple, vibrant, finely carbonated, dryish medium body and a smooth, interesting, long finish imparting notes of coffee, baking chocolate, grapefruit and blood orange, and rapini finish.

Black IPAs 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.
