We call this an American Black Ale (the style is also known as Black IPA or Cascadian Dark Ale), and is a highly hopped black beer. Released 2011.

Tasting Notes:

Appearance - Coca-cola black, with a light brown head.

Aroma - The American hops deliver oranges in the aroma, backed up with oranges, pine and a hint of chocolate in the flavour.

Body & Mouthfeel - A deliciously smooth beer, striking a perfect balance between the hoppiness and smooth malt characters.
