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.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAR 16, 2011
Bottle, Pours a deep black body with a yellow off white head with good light retention and a sticky sides. Aromatically malty with pine notes, and some light earth a touch of soap. Not the normal grassy aromatics i’m use to. A bit ash y a light roast y bitter chocolate tone, finishes very dry almost chalk like. Very roast y with a quickly bitter and drying finsh. Weak for style but a decent beer overall.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - MAR 15, 2011
22oz bottle with "bottled first week of February 2011" written on the label. Pours a black colored body with an inch thick, dense and creamy, light brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing throughout. Aroma is great. Full of citrusy, fresh pines and florals. Lots of grapefruits with a bit of a peppery resin to the hops. A really nice chocolate and light roast behind the fresh hops. Flavor is quite bold. Lots of bitter, piney and leafy hops up front with a good amount of resins. Some light florals, but this is mainly about the brash bitterness. A decent chocolate and caramel comes in, but not as rich as the aroma. Roast comes out towards the end and adds to the bitterness along with lots of grapefruit. Finishes very dry with a higher bitterness before leaving a lengthy aftertaste. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Overall, a very bold Black IPA. Lots of bitter hops and pretty intense roasts. I like the balance on the aroma better, but I certainly didn’t mind the intense flavor.

Strykzone (5072) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAR 10, 2011
Sampled at an ESBLS tasting at Bigelo’s. Very dark with a small tan head that becomes a ring. Dark roasted notes in the aroma. Huge, overdone roasted blast hits the mouth first. It is almost anise but not quite. Immediately after the malt some big bitter hops hit. Overdone on both ends.

HonkeyBra (3528) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - FEB 25, 2011
Black pour with thick tan head. Aroma of strong pine, chocolate, grapefruit. Nice amount of roast, light sugary sweetness. Flavor is definitely hop forward, with leafy green hops, piney hops, light earthy hops. Some chocolate, some roast and coffee. Nice hoppiness, and the roast compliments rather than being out of control. Medium to full bodied, thick on the palate. Average carbonation, finishes with bitter hops. Really solid Black IPA.

A deep dark IPA with a thin moka head. In aroma, classic c-hops with chocolate notes, pinhey and smooth. In mouth, a smooth pinhey hops with smooth chocolate, classy and lovely. On tap at Boston Beer Summit, Jan. 15 2011.

Damico (2684) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 30, 2011
It pours dark black, no hue, with an off-white bubbly head. The aroma is predominantly hops with some malts way in the background. There are a lot of hops up front in the flavor with light roasted notes on a smooth, medium body.

22 oz bottle. Pretty, dark brown pour with a thick light brown head. Aroma of grapefruit, roasted malt and faint bitter chocolate. Sharp taste of pepper and citrus hops with a lasting bitter finish. Really different, really good.
