teorn88 (6741) - Out of the EU, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 3, 2014
Backlog rating. Keg at Kings Arms tap takeover, London. It pours a hazy dark brown color with ruby edges and a medium sized off-white head. Aroma is roasted malts and dried fruits, toffee. Taste is quite harsh roasty and bitter with notes of coffee, earth, cocoa, tangy red berries and piny hops. Finishes resinous and bitter. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Decent BIPA, not the freshest hops

olsvammel (6293) - Örebro, SWEDEN - SEP 5, 2015
On tap at Bishops Arms in Örebro. Hoppy smell with citrus. Similar taste, some grapefruit but not roasted. Definitely hop forward. It isn’t really black, more dark brown and I didn’t get any dark malty or chocolaty aromas. So not really a BIPA but still a nice beer.

Glouglouburp (6103) - 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.

Light brown . Aroma of syrupy, fruity peaches. Flavour really gets hoppy and dry in the finish. Nice balance.

jfb (5567) - Freising, GERMANY - OCT 19, 2016
(draught) slightly opalescent copper-amber colour with a frothy beige head. aroma of gooseberries and strawberries, with a touch of herbal hops, some gently roasted malts and sugar icing. flavour is mostly pale malts and red bell peppers, quite musty, with lots of sweatsocks, some mango, black pepper and yeast in the semi-dry finish. full-bodied with average carbonation.

erickok (5453) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAY 7, 2011
Great combo of hoppy taste and malty sweetness. Overall a full bitter (but not overdone) taste. Very dark red, solid lasting head. Long aftertaste, only a little astringent. Grass, cherry.
