4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Absolutely phenomenal BIPA. Pours a stout black with a nice tan head that last for a little while and leaving good lacing on the pint glass. Aroma of coffee beans, vanilla, grapefruit, citrus, some burnt toast. The striking part of this beer is the wonderful balance between that Porter-like roasted character and the American style hop notes. Delicious, much much better than the rating would suggest.

Pitch black pour with a smallish brown lid. Decent lacing. Malty, citrus, lemon, coriander, pepper, slight pine, catty. Chocolate, coffee with the hoppy bitterness providing the backbone. Some sweetness from the malts. Very good.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Drinkstore, Dublin 
Black, thin dark tan head, light lacing
Aroma - Herbal zest hop nose, slight rubber on the nose, cut vegetable stems, car tyre, not liking the hop aroma in this
Taste - Bitter dry zest, herbal hops, some dark bitter roast, plant material, dab of burnt rubber, odd, oh this isn’t working for me
Palate - Soft carb, thinnish body, bitter hop, dry. Finish - dry bitter herbal hop finish, rather astringent
Overall - Oh I’m the only one here not liking this - the hop profile didn’t agree with my palate at all

330ml bottle, present from a friend. Pours a dark brown with a patchy tan head. Burnt toast, citrus, marijuana aroma. Light woody sweetness, bitter and slightly smoked. Prickly dry and toasted finish. Tasty and complex but there’s something lacking.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cl bottle. Pitch black with tan head. Aroma gives plenty of sweet, dank papaya and tangerine, pine needles, grapefruit and a decent bit of peppery spice. There’s some burnt coffee hanging around too. The taste is pretty hefty: lots of tropical fruit, burnt coffee, some tobacco, thick pine, big grapefruit, dark roasted malt. Medium bodied with a good amount of carbonation lifting everything. Really rough bitter fruits in the finish, some heavy smokey roasted malt bitterness. Massive bite to it. Very decent stuff.
