Huhzubendah (3327) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 25, 2012
Growler shared by Thorpe429. Thanks Mike! The beer is dark brown and appears nearly transparent, in spite of the dark color. The head is about 1/2" thick, and leaves some decent lacing behind. The aroma is primarily of citric hops, with mild roast. The flavor follows suit, and marries the roast with hops nicely. Flavorful and well balanced. A good brew, but nowhere near the quality of their regular IPA lineup. Serving type: growler Reviewed on: 05-27-2011

Draught at Toronado, San Diego. Black beer with a small brownish head. Malty roasted aroma, caramel, licorice, floral notes, metal, grassy, hay, herbal, licorice, chocolate notes. Hoppy roasted chocolate flavor, cocoa, citrus, grass, licorice notes, hay, grapefruit, some caramel. Good beer.

Draft @ ritual tavern: toasted malts and hops in the nose. Dark pour, solid of white head. Clean toasted malt and hop interplay in the flavors, some licorice to boot...you know the normal black ipa flavors...they all pretty much taste the same...this one is clean but nothing out of the ordinary.

marcus (8593) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 26, 2011
On tap at Downtown Johnny Browns. Pours black with a light brown head and a treacle aroma. There is a carbonated roasted malt flavor with a piney hop finish. The malt sticks to the palate.

JorisPPattyn (9081) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAY 8, 2012
Draught Shortlived white head, over practically black beer. Typically mandarine/tangerine smell from Alpine hopgifts. Again this special mandarineflavour, quite delicate. Very bitter finish, but ever so slighlty empty. Dark malts are there, but very modest in flavour; touch of cigarette ashes in the finish. Not very well-bodied, bit empty in the finish. Very inviting, ends in a slighlty minor key.

BrewDad (5324) - Olympia, Washington, USA - MAY 12, 2012
Black in color, clear with a thin head. Nice dark malt and hops aroma. Good floral hops flavor lingers with the roasty dark malts. Very tasty CDA made in San Diego

dcschiller (2207) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 3, 2013
On draught at Alpine. Pour dark brown/near black with a khaki head. Aroma is bright and juicy citrus, cocoa, and roast and some anise. Taste is sweet with some mild bitterness. Medium bodied and a bit sticky. Good for the style.

wheresyourball (572) - El Cajon, California, USA - SEP 24, 2015
Poured from a growler shared by Steve. Black pour with a small head. Nose is hops mixed with malt/chocolate. Flavor is toasted malt, chocolate, with a hoppy finish. Definitely different. Flavors don’t go together great.
