Pours a black colour with an off-white head. Aroma of lovely floral hops, citrus and some maltiness. Flavour of roasted malts, strong floral hops, citrus, mandarin orange and exotic fruitiness. Medium bodied, silky smooth mouthfeel and a smooth, roasty and nicely bitter finish. Really well balanced. Delicious.

On gravity at the Factoberfest, Tobacco Factory, Bristol September 2012. Near black with a slight, off-white head. Big aroma of citrus fruits, grassy hops, pine and a touch of sweetness. Flavour had plenty of dark fruits and tangerines, a hint of fruit cake and a dry, resinous finish. Excellent.

blankboy (6277) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 26, 2014
[Bottle (500ml)] Pours a very dark amber-brown with a large mostly-lasting rocky tan head and lots of lacing. Aroma has a surprising, in a good way, amount of hops along with malt and some coffee -- mostly just hops though. (Surprising because I didn’t realize this was a Black IPA) Flavour is also really hoppy along with some roasted malt, coffee and a long moderate hoppy finish. Medium bodied. Really good, I need to get more.
