Molto luppolata. Notre resinose decise dovute all utilizzo del luppolo simcoe, ma leggera e beverina.

6% draft glass at Rokko Diner. A very dark brown with a bit of a reddish quality to it with a beige head & a hoppy citrus & mild funk aroma. The taste is medium-full bodied, citrus hoppy then rich dark malts with a touch of chocolate. Quite nice

Glouglouburp (6022) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 17, 2013
In short: A very hoppy (piney) and well malted (nutty, caramel) Black IPA. Good beer.
How: From a bottle at Montreal Mondial 2013.
The look: Cloudy mahogany body topped by a persistent small beige head.
In long: The hop-dominated nose is very scented-pine-tree with resinous undertones. Decent mouthfeel with medium body, texture a bit chewy, medium carbonation. Taste is nutty caramelized cereals. Almonds and an enormous hops presence that tastes like freshly cut pine-tree. A clean and crisp bitterness with only light resinous notes. A good Black IPA. I’m not sure what a hoppy cat is, but I love cats and I love living with a cat and I love my cat, all the time it spends grooming itself and vomiting makes me feel like I’m living with a supermodel.

Fin (7538) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2013
Bottle picked up by my dad in a Eataly, Genoa, late Sept/early Oct 2013. consumed at home Saturday 12th October 2013 Pours black with off-white head. A very hoppy nose with some resiny pine in particular showing. Mmmhh.. this is a tasty decent black IPA, there are flavours of caramel and roasted malts coming through but this is very hoppy and the finish is bitter and dry. Really like this.

Bottiglia 33cl, 5,8 vol, comprata da eataly e bevuta al lavoro. Color caramello intenso con schiuma fine non troppo persistente. Tostata quel che basta, resinosa, profumata. Grande equilibrio fra corpo e bevibilità. Davvero una gran birra! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhold

TommyFi (101) - ITALY - AUG 12, 2013
Color cioccolato fondente, con un bel cappello di schiuma pannosa. Al naso sentori di luppolo fresco persistente ma non aggressivo e malto tostato insieme a cioccolato. In bocca è fresca, di corpo medio, rispecchia a pieno le sensazioni olfattive e presenta un retrogusto lievemente dolciastro da malto caramellato classico nelle Cascadian Dark Ale. Finale erbaceo molto persistente. Rispetto alle altre Black Ipa, o Cascadian Dark Ale che dir si voglia (a voi la scelta, e se avete voglia, leggete i mille articoli in giro per il web sulla diatriba) presenti in Italia, questa è in pieno stile, non è troppo spinta e aggressiva come altre dello stesso stile come ad esempio Space Invaders di Toccalmatto. Non si fatica a bere un secondo bicchiere e non stanca. Molto molto buona.

NBird (386) - Perth, West Australia, AUSTRALIA - AUG 4, 2013
Brown amber, medium light brown head. Smells..hops mostly piney, hints of dark fruit, caramel, malt and maybe a hint of spice but could be the pine I can smell. Tastes..pretty hoppy- piney and resinous, some citrus - mostly the bitter end, like grapefruit, potentially a little spice, nice malt and caramel to match bitterness.
