MartinT (7779) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 1, 2014
My Bottom Line:
This fruity, resinous and chocolatey Black IPA pleases from aroma to finish, lending plenty of complexity and flavor.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A stable sheet of foam decorates the brown-edged black.
-Carbonation might be a bit zealous.
-Hop profile is more coniferous than citrusy.
-Bitterness is a blend of hop resins and malt roastiness.
-Drinkability is pretty high for the style.

Bottle. Merci, Ian!

FROMTHEBOTTLE (4) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 29, 2014 does not count
500ml bottle. Pours jet black with frothy tan head, Could be visually mistaken for a porter until you smell the unmistakable hops. Then no doubt it is a black ipa.. Nose is citrus and grapefruit, Subtle malt, licorice and pine resin undertones lead to a lingering bitterness, Cheers.

500ml bottle from LCBO. Pours very dark brown with a spongy tan head. Hoppy citrus aroma with some molasses, coffee malt. Medium, creamy body. A hint of floral. Balanced and smooth with a bitter finish. This is a great flavourful black IPA.
