On tap at Barley Browns in Baker City, OR (thanks to Tyler and Shawn for this one!)--Poured a bright orange amber body with a wispy white head and lots of legs on the glass. Hop monster with lingering bitterness and big floral presence. Not as overwhelming as their IPA with bittering hops. At least it didn’t seem that way until I got my growler home and my head starting tingling from all the alphas. Yum!

On tap. Black pour with an off white top. Scent is citrus and pine with roasted malts. Taste is roasted malt and then a staggering amount of hops, piney bitter finish. Love it!

mcberko (6020) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 28, 2013
On tap at Belmont Station’s Bier Cafe, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma brings out a great mix of roasted malt and piney hops, like a well-balanced black IPA should. Flavour is super pungent, with loads of roasted malt, dry dark fruits, and potent pine hops. Impeccably well-balanced, without any harsh elements. Damn fine flavours. Fantastic double black IPA.

On draught at Apex. Midnight black color. Aroma is sweet and tart tropical fruit, with some dark grain notes. Taste is tropical fruit, dark chocolate and cocoa nibs, roasted malt, and a hint of cherry. Finishes with a refreshing fruit and chocolate aftertaste.

JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - NOV 3, 2007
Sampled on tap and handbottled. Extremely dark chestnut brown with a tan head. Robust hop aroma - a lot of grapefruit, but a floral undertone - and a bit of nuttiness way in the back. A very light roastiness with a vicious hop wallop behind, mostly grapefruit rind. Great in the bottle, fantastic fresh. A well done brew - mad hops, but the dark character adds something interesting.

Got to try a sample of the ’08 Stranahan’s whisky barrel version of this from a growler that someone brought to the 2010 pre Fred-Fest tasting at the home of, "hannont". Colour... amber-brown with no head. Nose... HOLY HOPS!! Palate... opens with a nice shot of whisky then follows with loads of flagellatingly sinful hops, scorched pine bark, grapefruit skin extractives and a finish that just won’t quit!

A vigorous pour yields a thin, light khaki head that’s soapy and sparkling, mostly diminishing. The body is very dark brown with mahogany tints. The aroma is chock full of evident bitterness and astringency, with heapings of grapefruit and overflowing pine. In this instance, excess smells terrific. Toasted grains are accompanied by lesser roasted ones. Mild chocolate, coffee are noted as well. No notable flaws, nothing offensive. Alcohol is very concealed. This is quite close to greatness. The flavor introduces a thick, intricate and consistent malt profile that has massive hoppiness interwoven with nice moderate sweetness and minor roast. Carbonation, though a touch on the high side, is adequate and pleasant. The body is medium and smooth. Finishes, toasty, hoppy with ample resiny bitterness. For the size and scope of this it’s really balanced - mainly due to the darker malts and heavy caramelization. Awesome. This doesn’t need work, but with a few minor tweaks this could hang with just about anything. More complexity and this would be a surefire contender every time.

raphael (873) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 21, 2009
At Belmont station they said the alcohol was 11%. And calling this a double ipa is oddm bt where else could you put. More hybrid styles springing out all the time, Big hop aromy\a, floral, with resin. Abundant brown head over darkest brown. Light and smooth inthe mouth, but a little turbulent. Strong hop flavor, with oak, cherry, roast malt and alcohol. burnt finish, warming.

From notes. Black double ipa. Reminds me of a more drinkable version of Stone XI. Excellent. Need to rerate this.

Growler thanks to the Boise crew. Pours a dark brown color with a medium white head. An excellent fruity nose with light chocolates. The flavor comes across as a massive very fruity, light resiny hop forward brew, some lighter chocolate and roast. Excellent.
