UncleKorm (825) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAR 28, 2014
On tap at brewery, poured a clear bronze hue w/ small white head and sticky lacing. Bold sweet hop aromas. Initial flavor is moderate sweet w/ a big bitter finish. Tastes are pine, orange citrus, clover, honey, and grapefruit. Full bodied, syrupy mouthfeel, and dry finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

locapour (6) - Austin, USA - AUG 3, 2013 does not count
I shot an episode of Locapour that features the Black Star Vulcan: http://locapour.tv/austin/blackstarcoopvulcan T color of the beer is amazing. It is truly lives up to its fiery namesake. If you are in the mood for an IPA but don’t want to be punched in the nose with a bushel of hops, the Vulcan will be a good choice. The rye rounds it out and gives it an incredible mouthfeel.

Caytinator (948) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 2, 2013
On tap. Caramel-colored cloudy beer with a small head. One of the better "Rye IPAs" I’ve had. Brewers usually lay it on too thick, this has pretty good balance. The rye does muscle out some of the pleasant hop notes, but adds some pleasant complex burnt flavors.

ttoadee (656) - Austin, Texas, USA - DEC 20, 2012

phaleslu (6554) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 8, 2012
Draft at the brewpub. Pours a clear amber collor with almost no head. Big tropical fruity aroma. Notes of apple juice, floral and herbal character, some caramel and rye. Light-bodied, with a fruity, juicy mouthfeel and modest carbonation. Nice, fruity IPA.
