Pours a deliciously thick black with an amazing hop burst rising out of the glass. Packed with the pungent fruit of citra hops the beer’s backbone holds it up well. Exquisitely balanced, with a moderate roast character letting the hops do the bittering. There is sweetness in there but exactly the right amount. This is a hell of a beer.

Black with a brown head - Roasted malt aroma with a nice hop aroma in the back - Good malt body with a good hop profile that gives a good bitterness - The bitterness from the hops goes into the finish - This was good

HogTownHarry (6371) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - NOV 14, 2015
October 19, 2013 - gravity cask at Cask Days 2013. Brown-black, cloudy, small tan head. Black IPA all right - gee, wish it were just an IPA, but - stuck record; lush resin, middlin dry roast malt, middlin alcohol - nice balance. Taste follows - tons of resin, a little sweeter than the aroma, but still fairly dry; average body, slick, astringent (very much so), long dry bitter diminishing finish, not overly coating - very very nice one.
