Six Pints Cascadian Dark IPA

Six Pints Cascadian Dark IPA is produced by the Six Pints Specialty Beer Co., in Toronto, Ontario. Six Pints is (I'm pretty certain) operated by Molson. It is housed in the Beer Academy.

This beer comes in a 625mL bottle. It contains 5.8% alcohol and 60 IBUs. It's a black IPA and it has a snazzy, if simple, label.

An alluringly dark beer, Cascadian Dark is topped with a lush tan head. There is an understated bitter aroma with evergreen notes. The flavour moves from malt to bitter. An earthy grain and dank malt overture is quickly swallowed by a hop heavy finish.

While the front end is a bit unexciting, the finish is really solid, with resinous notes and some foresty hops vibes. This was a pretty nice brew, though I expect more alcoholic bang from my black IPAs.
Rating: 7.5 out of 10.
