nearbeer (3729) - 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.

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 wasnít as much of the roast flavours coming through as Iíve witnessed with other "black" IPAís, but overall this is a very more-ish version of the style.

DuffMan (6745) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 4, 2012
Bottle. Everything about this brew makes it the best offering yet from the Bitter Root Brewing Company, from the label art to the beer itself. Hazy dark brown with a light brown head that laces the glass nicely. Aroma is very piney and fresh, and given time, some chocolates notes come forward. Fresh piney foresty hops steal the show, with dark malts underlying. Solid bitter finish. Excellent!

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 Iíve been having a lot of good Black IPAís in the last few months and each time I think, "Wow, this is the best Black IPA Iíve had." I can honestly say, THIS is the best Black IPA Iíve ever had. It is perfectly balanced, there is a lot of coffee/burnt malt taste, but it doesnít 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.

bhensonb (11074) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 24, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 26, 2014 Bomber from Brewforia. Good to be #10! Pours very dark brown with a frothy 3 finger light tan head. Mild cat piss aroma. Med body. Strong cat piss, aka citrus, flavor over some slightly burnt malt. Itís so hoppy itís astringent - or maybe thatís the burnt malt. Cleans the nasal passages - good stuff. Good stuff on repeat.

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.

TimE (3189) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 28, 2011
Very dark brown color. Grapefruity, roasted malts, a touch of mocha in the nose. The mouth has tons of roasted malts with great dark fruit character with just some minor note of citrus. Full bodied, excellent balance. Very enjoyable. Light bitter finish with lingering citrus.
