COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Deep and dark as a starless night, this beer is dominated by a pronounced hop aroma of pine and spruce, with subdued notes of fresh cut wood and special herbs. The flavor is characterized by a clean hop taste with a subtle dry roasted malt touch in the background. Draft only.

jbruner (2315) - Athens, Georgia, USA - APR 27, 2014
Pours an opaque brownish black on tap with fluffy tan head that leaves great lace. Aroma is a nice balance of roast, chocolate, and piney hops. Taste follows, dry and bitter, but the roast opens up more as it warms up. Very nice balance, good carbonation, better than I was expecting.

Cirrhosis (1208) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 31, 2014
Fresh taped keg at beer revolution. I have no clue what this is supposed to be……. Black IPA? Dark black brown no cap really. Dam you Jeff for tricking me into ordering this, me no likey!! Everything taste toasted, with coffee hints, and grapefruit. Not a fan of this style, this is a crap review by me…..sorry beer you deserve better.

reebtogi (4180) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 30, 2014
Pint on tap at Beer Revolution’s Edmonton location pours black in color with a small off-white head that leavers some thin lacing on the glass. Aroma is light roasted grains with some pine and grapefruit and a hint of chocolate. Taste is a roasted grain and pine, grapefruit hop bitterness balanced nicely with a light chocolate and malty sweetness. Medium bodied with decent carbonation. A well done black IPA that I really enjoyed tasting.

Reimer96 (1217) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 27, 2014
Pours a clear dark brown with a brown head that leaves lots of lacing up the glass. Aroma of pine, spruce, wood, roasted malts and a light bit of chocolate. Taste is roasted malts, pine, resin, spruce, roasted malts and a balanced bitterness throughout. Medium bodied ipa that shows excellent roast and malt character while balancing hop bitterness and flavor as well.
