jake65 (2959) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 21, 2011
Bottle - very dark brown pour with a modest creamy brown head. Aroma of florals and light roast. Tastes heavier with roast and finishes clean with floral bitters. Nice transition between the dark roast and the floral hops. Good.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - OCT 31, 2011
Solid black with some yeast chunks, frothy, big, creamy brown head. Aroma of roast malt, light coffee, floral and resinous hops. Taste has bitterness from burnt malt and hops, solid malt body. It seems like I’ve been having a lot of good Black IPA’s in the last few months and each time I think, "Wow, this is the best Black IPA I’ve had." I can honestly say, THIS is the best Black IPA I’ve ever had. It is perfectly balanced, there is a lot of coffee/burnt malt taste, but it doesn’t mask the hops at all. Same for the hops, they are bold and vibrant, but they do not conflict with the creamy malty body and burnt flavor. I will be buying more of this next time I see it.

harrymel (1551) - Spokane, Washington, USA - OCT 31, 2011
On tap at brews on Washington in Spokane A: black, finger of tan foam, abysmal. Looks appropriate. Rings of lace. (3.5) S: coffee, citrus, resin, oats, robust porter like nose. A little hollow through the middle with soily, dry finish. (3) T: dry and muddled with coffee tones and nutty suggestions. Hops are bitter with some fruity and resiny notes. The juxtaposition of the profiles is a hare off. (3) M: full bodied with a little too much carb. Slick finish. (2.5) O: needs some tweaking, but a decent effort. (3)

Torontoblue (85) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 6, 2011
Draught at the Tamarack Brewpub, Missoula. Lovely dark brown/black in colour. Big hop aroma; Orange peel, grapefruit & pine, with an underlying hint of roasted malt. Medium bodied, with nice juicy hops leading to a very pleasant bitter finish. There wasn’t as much of the roast flavours coming through as I’ve witnessed with other "black" IPA’s, but overall this is a very more-ish version of the style.

nearbeer (4291) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 25, 2011
22 oz, labeled "Last Cast" Black IPA. I assume this is the same beer. Nose is coffee, grapefruit, resin and juicy orange. Taste is the same with some ash and cocoa as well. Medium-to-heavy body is slightly sticky, but well dried by the hops and the lightly astringent roast.

3fourths (8701) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 26, 2010
draft. deep brown. juicy, resinous hop nose: grapefruit, pine needles and orange oil. medium body, medium to heavy toasted malt up front with mild roast across the back. juicy and resinous hop oils leave a tingling numbness on the tongue. medium+ dryness. very clean throughout, and very fresh.
