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.

slitcher (266) - Freeport, Illinois, USA - MAY 25, 2011
On draught @ The Olympic Tavern. Pours an extreme.y dark brown (almost black) with a thick tan head. Aromas of citrus, dark chocolate and caramel. Flavor of choclate up front with the hop bitterness coming through in the midde. Finish is citrus and bitter chocolate. Body is on the thin side. Black IPA or highly-hopped stout? Either way, pretty damned tasty.

Starts with good roasted flavors and then slides over to hoppy and bitter flavors. What I want a black ipa to taste like

porterhouse (1581) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - MAY 15, 2011
(22 oz. bottle) Pours very dark brown with some brown highlights. Large khaki head settles to a lumpy cap. Aroma of citrus/grapefruit and light pine over dark caramel. Mouthfeel smooth, medium-heavy. Lots of weepy, webby rings of lacing stick to the glass. Sweet and hoppy flavor of citrus and light pine over dark caramel, vanilla and mild coffee roast. ABV mostly covered. Pretty good example of the style.

The aroma is heavy grapefruit nose followed by a mildly roasted dark malt. Citrus with a hint of tangerine. Hops have a touch of bitterness. The appearance is dark brown with reddish tinge. Big pillowy head that lasts. Glassy brick red in the light. Impressive lace. The flavor is malt, and more burnt flavor, being the primary bitter flavor. The hops are a bitter aftertaste and accent. Malts are earthy after they breathe a bit; amber-ish. The palate is smooth, buttery, coats the palate. Itís a well-balanced beer with a double barrel of bitter hops and roasted malts. Good example of style.

thegreenrooster (3417) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - APR 30, 2011
Pour is a black with a large tan head. Aroma is deffinatly a fresh pine hop. Flavor is at first a dark roasted malt then comes a nice pine hop and some chocolate left on the tounge. Of all the black IPAís Iíve had this one fits the bill the most. Pleanty of hops with roasted things going on in the backround.

Good hoppy black beer. Good hops, Amarillo gives it orange taste, its a little strange with the malted chocolate malts, drinkable but not as integrated as you would think. Dark black, a little retained head. Hoppy aromas.

jstraw (1942) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 27, 2011
Dark brown with decent, tan, creamy head / Nose of roast coffee and cocoa / Light to medium body, chewy, a little watery, with good balance and good finish / Somewhat weak flavors of burnt coffee, caramel, grapefruit, and dried pine / Needs work.

Bottle provided by Huhzubendah. Thanks, Matt. Served in a tulip. Pours near black with a fairly-good off-white to tan head. Mild lacing and a thin cap. The nose brings forward some slight roast as well as a bit of hoppy character--mostly a bit of pine. Some toasted malt in the background as well. Nothing really seems to gel here. The taste follows along the same lines. Thereís some roast and thereís some pine, but I donít really get anything coming together. The finish has something off with a very strange dryness. A bit too much chocolate for the style. The finish is a bit astringent. I liked their brown much better; something about this one just didnít really work for me.

TheBeerGod (5455) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - APR 19, 2011
Bottle. Black bodied with a tall, dense, dark brown head. Aroma is piney with roasted malt, citrus fruit and floral hops. Taste is big citrus and pine atop roasted malt, light licorice, and floral hops. Citrus oils and pine resins in the body along with medium carbonation and a medium full overall feel. Ends with more big citrus notes, strong floral hops, pine notes, grapefruit juice and roasted malt.

draft at Coles, Buffalo. Darker brown black pour. Great citrusy piney hop aroma with roasted maltiness. bitter almost harsh flavor. Decent flavor but hard to match that aroma.
