Bottle. Dark brown body, big creamy offwhite head. Aroma of grapefruit, licorice, roast. Taste of caramel, pine, citrus, heavy bitterness, though a very short bitter fruity aftertaste. I feel it’s missing that final hop punch, but a bad beer it surely isn’t.

Camons (5067) - Hasselager, DENMARK - APR 12, 2014
Draught @ Open Baladin, Rome. Pours slightly hazy brown with a creamy tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel fruity hops, peach, citrus, grapefruit. Flavor is rich sweet roasted malts, caramel, fruity hops, peach, oranges, grapefruit. Medium body, soft carbonation, bitter finish. 070414

wyzzywyz22 (1890) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2014
Draught, 23 Club, Liverpool. Dark brown looks with a smallish tan head. Piney hop, citrus, choc and a hint of roast present in the beak. A similar yarn unfolded in the sweetish flavour with some very tidy hop bitterness. Extremely drinkable and moreish. Great stuff. Meow.

skoisirius (1473) - Earth, Washington, USA - APR 1, 2014
Tap at Mikkeller BKK in mid-March. An interesting Italian take on the IPA. More sour hop notes than you’d be used to drinking an American or English IPA. Still hoppy, but with sour grass. Good, not my favorite.

varanid99 (435) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 14, 2014
Cola-like pour with thin, quickly fading pale brown head. Slightly floral, slightly soapy aroma. Sweet, caramel, chocolate, a little aniseed, fairly strong bitterness. Interesting

hawthorne00 (2261) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 13, 2014
Growler. Amber with a modest pale beige head. Aroma of grapefruit, toast, a hint of chocolate. Truly bittersweet - no separate sweetness and bitterness, but lingering grapefruit and pine after sticky breadcrust and a little chocolate depart. Chirpy and engaging.

ourkid (4) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 7, 2014 does not count
Sold to me as a Black IPA but I’m not sure it quite fits the category. It’s still a fine beer; dark coloured, hoppy background but not overpowering, fresh malt and a sharp tang. Creamy head but perhaps a little lacking in complexity and bitterness.

Un gusto veramente elegante, con il tostato e l’amaro perfettamente bilanciati che ne fanno un gioiellino tra le black ipa italiane. Risulta piacevole da bere e ad ogni gusto si apprezza la nota erbacea molto particolare del luppolo e l’impatto leggero del caffé.
