KansaiBeerLvrs (1325) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 18, 2013
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

dreadnord (1013) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 9, 2012
Pours dark brown but turns black as it pools in the glass with a big off white head. Nose is fresh pine, roasted coffee and ocean spray. Taste is mostly bitter throughout. Light sweetness for balancing. Mouthfeel is crisp and clean. Medium body with a long aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

McNeillR (974) - SCOTLAND - JAN 2, 2014
Cola brown body, beige off white head. Sweet, buzzing hop nose. Floral gums. Initial taste is neatly hopped, fizzy and rich enough malt. Blindfolded it’s not a Black IPA at all, finish is resin and the lightest roast without being coffee. Linger is clean, more bitter and still fizzy.

Mortlach (955) - Rome, ITALY - JUN 9, 2012
03/06/2012 La Tana (tap). Marroncina, non molto intensa, torbida, bel cappello di schiuma bianco sporca, a grana grossolana, abbastanza persistente. Naso splendido, come consuetudine per le creazioni di Leonardo, luppoli e malti tostati si sposano alla perfezione. In bocca è un bel mix di malti tostati e luppoli, con un perfetto equilibrio generale. Corpo un po’ leggerino, carbonazione corretta. Birra magnifica.

humlelala (879) - DENMARK - MAY 12, 2012
Sample from 75 cl bottle at CBF. Pours clear copper with medium, white head and good lace. Aroma is hoppy with fuity nd leafy notes as well as amalty, resiny touch. Oily almost creamy mouthfill ith medium carbonation, full body and a sweet finish. Moderately sweet taste to the point of being an amber ale with a little dry bitterness at the end.

marcot (771) - Campomorone, ITALY - APR 7, 2011
Alla spina a Selezione Birra 2011, Rimini. Non la ricordavo così scura da essere considerata black IPA, ben luppolata e molto resinosa invece si. Il Simcoe è un luppolo molto interessante

BiereLuc (761) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 29, 2013
Bière brune-cuivrée aux allures un peu boueuses; très opaque. Nez herbeux et caramel. La texture est mince mais les saveurs prennent beaucoup de place. ON goûte du caramel et des agrumes... du pamplemousse en finale. Bel exercice!

greenclansman (701) - Nicosia, CYPRUS - JUL 11, 2012
"Aroma of cascade and more cascade, dark bronze color. Carbonated and bitter, but surprisingly light. Grapefruit flavors and surprisingly short palate. Very drinkable"-couldnt agree more... realy nice beer

Buongiorgio00 (576) - - JAN 6, 2014
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.
