radzik5555 (425) - Gdynia, POLAND - NOV 24, 2014
Butelka 0.33L.
Wygląd: Ciemny miedziany/jasny brunatny, lekko mętne. Piana jasno beżowa.
Aromat: Intensywny, słodki chmielowy, głównie marakuja, melon, mango, ananas, żywica. Prażone bakalie, przypalony cukier, lekko tytoniowy. Świetny!
Odczucie: Wysycenie niskie, ciało średnie, faktura gładka, kremowo-oleista.
Smak: Lekko słodkie, zupełnie inaczej smakuje niż pachnie. Ma nuty palonych słodów, których w aromacie nie ma prawie wcale. Goryczka niska grejpfrutowa.
Całość: Nie wygląda jak BIPA ale poza tym świetne, genialnie nachmielone na zimno.

first thing - a really nice bottle and label, it stands out. surprisingly, the beer isn’t black, but dark-brown - but I think it can be the case with CDAs. the best thing about this beer is the aroma, hoppy, with lots of esters, it comes out really nice. the taste is also very hoppy - not only in bitterness, which is quite high but very noble and short, but also in the taste as such. It’s really enjoyable. foam is nice, too. drawbacks? a bit too thin, I think it would be better with a slightly more ’full’ body. a bit soury too, but it’s not a problem for me - it’s got this estry-fruity character which not everyone might like, but for me it’s great. a good beer with a fabulous aroma.

dark brown, small but solid head, loads of lacing. Tropical nose, obvious simcoe character. Quite easy with a bitter finish. Easily the best black IPA I have ever had

Travlr (12986) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 22, 2014
Draft at Churchkey’s 5th anniversary, courtesy of staff, thank you! Clear dark maroon color, fluffy beige head. Roasty coffee grounds aroma, light pine. Taste is very malty. Taste is OK, but it doesn’t taste anything like any black IPA I’ve ever had before. Off style.

fedexs (19) - ITALY - OCT 8, 2014
At the apparence red rubin with thin foam. Its aroma is hoppy with not so more fruits. Drinking it it is like an IPA but less bitter even if bitter taste and notes of fruits characterize its really nice body.
