Appearance: pitch black with a huge tan head that just won’t drop. Great lacing. Aroma: fresh, citrusy and hoppy. Exactly how a Black IPA should smell. Even though it’s black, there’s no roastiness, no coffee, no chocolate in the aroma. Only fresh hops. Taste: pretty much the same as the aroma: hoppy, citrusy, however there are some roasty notes in the background, very subtle though. Medium bitterness, perfect for this beer. Mouthfeel: medium bodied, soft to medium carbonation. Overall: a perfect example of how a black IPA should look, smell and taste like. This one is one of my all time favourite beers and I enjoy drinking it every once in a while. Highly recommended. Enjoyed from a teku glass.

Fruity, spicy aroma. It smells green, and tastes the same. Small but stable head, lot of tropical fruit and hops. Long aftertaste with toned and balanced bitterness. My no.1 beer for half a year now. Still need to find something better :D

Draught @ Animal Bar. Pours dark brown with a moderate beige head. Aroma is hoppy, sweet, tropical fruity, light roasted malt. Flavor is quite the same, light sweet in the start fallowed by a moderate bitterness.

Very nice black IPA, I like it particularly because the roastiness is only in the background.

blankboy (5948) - 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.

500ml bottle. Black pour with a foamy tan head. Aroma is lemon, pine resin, grass and roasted malts. Taste is pine, citrus, licorice, roasted malts and smoke. Medium body, soft carbonation, creamy texture.

Svesse (6041) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - FEB 23, 2014
(Draught at Man in the Moon, Stockholm, 20 Feb 2014) Black colour with frothy, pale brown head. Malty, roasted nose with notes of pine needles, coffee, dark chocolate, black rye bread and hints of mint. Malty, roasted, hoppy taste with coffee, dark chocolate, pine needles, grapefruit, black rye bread and a generous piney, citric bitterness in the finish. More than medium body, with a touch of sweetness. Very tasty and well made black IPA. Very nice.

330 ml bottle from Świat Piwa, Cracow, Poland Black brownish color with small tan head. Grapefruit and pine aroma, some coffee and malty notes. Medium mouthfeel, carbonation is soft. Taste of grapefruit and roasted malt. Great balance between bitterness and malt. Really nice black IPA.

wilderthanyou (758) - Guelph, CANADA - FEB 19, 2014
Pours motor oil black with a foamy beige cap that leaves behind good lacing, sexy. The aroma is pine, peach, grapefruit, the dark malt presence rounds out the edges with an anise like note. The flavour follows suit exactly, finishes on a lingering mix of grapefruit and salted licorice, more grapefruit than licorice. Perhaps some of the juiciest grapefruit and peach notes I’ve ever experience in a beer, and unexpectedly from a black ipa! More IPA than black in my opinion, but super enjoyable either way. Loved it.
