COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hoppy Feet has been lovingly crafted by combining premium malt with lots of Amarillo and Columbus hops.
Grapefruit and Pine are balanced on the nose and on the palate by a nutty, dark chocolate, roasted backbone.

Dark black pour from a bomber. Strong coffee and chocolate in the aroma with a hint of citrus hops. Roasted malts and kona coffee dominate the flavor. Theres some bitterness and a light hop spiciness at the end. To me, this is a slightly hoppy stout, not a black ipa.

Spookgolds (241) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 28, 2012
bottle from craft beer outlet. pours dark, with some hops/coffee on the aroma. Taste is pretty overwhelming cocoa powder, with some coffee. A bit of hop bitterness at the end. Not really what I would expect from a black ipa.

jtclockwork (8595) - , New Jersey, USA - APR 22, 2012
Bottle thanks to BlackIPA. Pours black with tan head. Nose/taste of roasty chocolate malt, coffee, hops, pine and resin. Some grapefruit rind. Finishes dry pine wood and roasty black malt. Medium body.

SpringsLicker (3156) - Tennessee, USA - APR 18, 2012
Pours opaque black with a tan head. Roast malt, chocolate, espresso aroma. The flavor is bitter - both roast malt bitterness and hop bitterness that plays between the two. I call this one an American Stout.

aracauna (3094) - Georgia, USA - APR 17, 2012
Very nice beer. Not quite rich enough to be a stout, otherwise this could just be a really hoppy stout. Nice coffee and cocoa, slight ash in the finish. Hops are a touch harsh in the back, but pair nicely with the malt flavors.

ccex (931) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 16, 2012
Bomber pours black with a big beige head and good lacing. I could smell the cirtus and piney hops from 2 feet away. Aroma has lemon, chocolate, coffee and roasted malts. It looks like a porter but tastes bitter like an IPA. Lively carbonation and a medium body. The malts come out in the finish. I have no complaints about this one.

Travlr (12349) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 16, 2012
Bottle. Almost completely black, gigantic beige ice cream cone head. Aroma of pine, melted chocolate, coffee. Taste is very roasted coffee grounds and black pepper. Very hi carbonation detracts from the flavor.

Bottle. Nice hop up front, bit metallic through the middle. Good malt backings. Pours black with tan head.

MartinT (7956) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 13, 2012
My Bottom Line:
Roasted bread crumbs, dark chocolate and pine needles merge for a lengthy finish in this frothy, dry Black IPA.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A humongous foam mushroom erupts from the darkness, lacing all the way down the pint glass. This is obviously overly carbonated.
-Letting the beer breathe for a while helps the mouthfeel greatly.
-Licorice and dark fruit angles are also tasted.
-The first half of each sip is much less compelling than the multifaceted finish.
-Hops contribute citrus fruit as well.

Bottle.

StPeteBeerMan (52) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - APR 12, 2012
Pours a dark brown/black. Smells of sweet citrus and malts. Dominant roasted malt flavor with strong coffee notes followed by citrus and spicy hops with a medium body. Spicy hop resin and coffee lingers in the aftertaste.
