Deschutes Hop In The Dark Cascadian Dark Ale

A – Poured out a dark brown color with a small, off-white head of bubbly foam. It left minimal lacing.

S – It smelled of roasted malt, grasses and pine.

T – It had a nice bitter hop bite with a piney/resiney flavor. Good roasted malt backbone provides needed balance.

M – It had a nice pop and bite on the tongue with a dry finish. Medium bodied and relatively sessionable.

D – This is a good black IPA. Liking the west coast pine aromas and flavor.
