Jury Duty - And a Question

Off doing my civic duty, which is bound to hamper blogging. But while I'm gone, could I crowdsource an answer to this question: which CDAs were released this year? (I'm starting to think about my annual year-end wrap-ups, and CDAs are getting some ink.) Widmer started things off with W '10. Then there was Oakshire O'Dark 30, Deschutes' Hop in the Dark and recently Full Sail's Bump in the Night. Am I missing any?


  1. Are you looking for strictly packaged options, or strictly OR beers? Need more criteria!

    Ignoring any restrictions, here's what I've got for bottles released in the last year:

    ~Stone/BrewDog Bashah
    ~HUB Secession
    ~Mad River Serious Madness
    ~SDouthern Tier Iniquity
    ~21st Amendment Back In Black
    ~Alaskan Double Black IPA

    That's everything that was released in Oregon in the last year. I left off a couple others like Stone Sublimely Self-Righteous and Rogue Brewer because they came out in 2009 or prior.

  2. I'll add to Chris' list draft wise;
    -Pyramid Discord
    -Terminal Gravity CDA
    -Boneyard Armored Fist
    -Collaborator Ale-X

    Ones older than this year;
    Three Creeks 8 second IBA,
    Laughing Dog Dogzilla
    Barley Brown's Turmoil
    Walking Man Big Black Homo

  3. I should have waited a few minutes before posting the previous comment because Victory Yakima Glory just rolled in as well.

  4. We did one at Alameda. Cascadian Coal. We did 2 batches and it's all gone for the time being.

  5. My 2010 Predictions wrap-up will also be spending some time on CDAs. Here are a few more from people still calling them Black IPAs:

    Alaskan - Double Black IPA
    Alchemist - El Jefe
    Amager - Black Nitro (Denmark)
    Bitter Root - Black IPA
    Clown Shoes - Hoppy Feet
    Grand Teton - Trout Hop
    LoneRider - Grave Robber
    Odell - Mountain Standard
    Otter Creek - Alpine Black IPA
    Speakeasy - Midnight Run
    Terrapin - Capt'n Krunkles
    Tied House - Menage a Singe
    Twisted Pine - Hoppy Knight
    Upland - Komodo Dragon Fly

    Beer and Coding

  6. Another one that apparently started in 2009, although I didn't see it until the 2010 batch: Big Time Dark Days Black IPA.

  7. This is fantastic--thanks, all! Further proof that you are smarter than I.

    (Also: I didn't get selected to serve on an actual jury, sadly. I was looking forward to it.)

  8. Down San Diego way, Alpine Brewing put out a Black IPA this year named - appropriately enough - Ugly. It's the single best example of the style that I've ever sampled. Those boys do have a way with the hoppy stuff - sure wish we could get some of their beers up here.

  9. Hopworks Secession!

    That was my favorite, came out about the same time the Oakshire CDA came out
