This is a BIG beer. We basically took the Hoppy Feet recipe and multiplied everything by 1.5. This created a wonderfully unique beer that has a deeper malt balance, bolder hop profile, and an extremely fresh aroma. When comparing to regular Hoppy Feet you will notice much sweeter malt notes mixed in with a more pronounced chocolate and dark fruit flavor. The malt flavors are balanced off with strong pine and citrus notes from the addition of A LOT of hops. This beer was actually dry-hopped not once but TWICE with each of the hop varieties (Columbus, Cascade, and Amarillo).

Pine needle, charred oak, peanut hulls, and freshly cut oak aroma, rustic and woody. Dark mahogany, medium beige head, uniform glass coating. Flavor is as much split wood as anything but charred oak, chocolate, and licorice notes come and go and are more prominent upon warming. There is a consistent yet vague bitterness from start to finish. This bitterness is a little too much, but that’s my sole nit pick. My guess is that it comes more from the black malt than any hopping. Stone Sublimely is still the undisputed champion but I really like this. This is a session beer for imperial stout fans. Greg, keep these fine beers coming.

22oz bottle. almost black with a large, fluffy, tan head. citrus hops and cocoa nose. surprisingly the chocolate malt wins the battle here with a nice cocoa flavor that almost mellows the hop bite. occasional coffee notes. pot brownies. a really smooth BIPA for the size of it. i would never guess the abv. one of the few impressive black ipa’s.

Cavie (3898) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - NOV 1, 2011
Bottle. Pours a dark brown color. Very dark indeed. Tan colored head. Aroma is dark chocolate, celery and hops. Flavor is dry hops, roasted malts and a light bitter finish. Not bad despite the veggie smell.

22 oz bottle via trade. Poured a good looking pitch black body underneath a huge foamy light beige head. Aroma of dark chocolate, grapefruit, dark toast, oranges, dark fruit and citrus rinds. Fuler chewy body with average tight carbonaton and a lingering bitter bite on the end. Flavor is much like the aroma and loaded with burnt malts, darker chocolate, lots of citrus rind, grapefruit and some dark fruit. This is good stuff and no hint of the ridiculous 11% ABV, well at least until you stand up.

Not a lot in the aroma; looks great though. This is pretty tasty. Definitely roasty, but lots of hops. Actually smoother than the original. Seems more like a 7 or 8% beer.

bottle at Pizza Plant. Strong brew. Dark black pour. Roasty, boozy & piney hop aroma. Hops were very prevelent in the aroma. Strong flavor of the aforementioned aroma, big piney bitterness, boozy, good amount of roasted malts. pretty extreme but it all seemed to work pretty well. Nice

22oz bottle. I wasn’t too impressed with the regular Hoppy Feet and decided to give this a try. I did enjoy this more than the non 1.5 version but I tend to like my beers big and complex. Deep black pour with a sticky tan head. Aromas of chocolate, roast, dank pine hops, and some graham cracker. Flavor is a nice mix of roasted malt, chocolate, and hop punch.

I’m not usually a fan of this style but this was a very good beer. Aroma was big and hoppy. Strong mix of citrus, grapefruit hops and a slight roasted malt note. Pour was a nice deep dark brown with a thin near tan ring for a head. Taste was very deceptive. This does not taste like an 11% beer. Full of flavor. Strong grapefruit and piney hops from start to finish with a subtle hint of roasted malt weaving in and out. A little chocolate comes out as it warms but doesn’t distract from the heavy bitter hop flavor. Finish is extremely bitter and hoppy. Strong carbonation. Great beer

Bottle. Pours a nice black color with a tan head. Aroma is of floral and grapefuity hoppy notes, along with stouty flavors underneath of roasted malt, cocoa, coffee and chocolate. The flavor is again fairly hoppy with floral, grapefruit and orange flavors, along with cocoa, roasted malt, coffee and liqourice. The body is medium with a dry mouthfeel. Overall a pretty nice Black IPA, but I would love to have tried it fresher.
