mikkelmohr (2) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 12, 2014 does not count
Growler from taproom - same day as tapped. Aroma: strong citrussy hops - very nice hop aroma that blends well with the roasted aromas. Appearance: Pours into a fine caramel colored foam that quickly sets. Very dark brown. medium sweetness, medium bitterness, bitterness from hops and dark malt combines nicely at the back of the throat. But not a strong aftertaste - very drinkable. Roasty flavors enhances with temperature. A really nice drinkable black IPA, that appears a bit sweeter than other black IPA. The best balanced black IPA i have had.

RedSox2004 (1252) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - SEP 1, 2014
On tap at the Orange Street location. Dark brown with a smallish beige head and decent lace. Herbal and citrus hop aromas with roasted malts. Hop bitterness belies the color of the beer, but is offset well by a toasty malt sweetness. Medium body, lively carbonation, prickly mouthfeel and a dry finish.

monk191 (927) - California, USA - AUG 27, 2014
A nicely balanced black IPA. Pours a nice brown-black with a bubbly tan head. Smells of hops and a bit of sweetness, maybe some vanilla. Taste starts hoppy, but then is cut for some vanilla, ice cream, cocoa and dark chocolate. Some bitterness comes back in for the finish. Paired with steak tacos, the characters are accentuated, some bigger sweet vanilla in the beginning, with a bit more bitterness in the finish. Good pairing. Had in the bottle.

Bottle. Dark mahogany beer with a tan head. Big grapefruit aroma with light summer fruit. Grapefruit and light pine flavor with light roast. Medium bodied. Ruby grapefruit and light pine linger with light caramel and light darker malts.

mcberko (6419) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 9, 2014
On tap at Bailey’s Taproom, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma brings out musty roasted malt, with a light hoppiness to it. Flavour is chalky, with powdery roasted malt and cocoa, with a dry hoppiness in back. Well-balanced and drinkable, without any harshness. Good stuff.

beer-yum (470) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 1, 2014
An engaging aroma is backed up by a well balanced and full bodied flavour. Reasonable alcohol content means you can have another in safety too. An excellent example of the style.

chinchill (1866) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 22, 2014
On tap at the Orange Street brewpub location. IBU = 75 Pours black with a fine creamy tan head that is very durable and leaves a complete coat of sticky lacing on th glass. Aroma: herbal/citrus hops Taste: strong hop flavor clashes with some dark roasted malts. High bitterness. Feel: full body; smooth but slightly astringent. O: Challenging Black IPA for hop-heads only.

jrodooo5 (1015) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUL 13, 2014
A nice & relatively sessionable black ipa. Huge dark roasted hop notes. Beautiful dark pour w/ a tan head & great lacing. The roasted flavor & hop kick sticks w/ u but is medium in body so it goes down easy! This is a damn good beer!

bhensonb (11053) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 26, 2014
Bomber from Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours dark brown with a foamy beige head. Lots of citrus for aroma. Nearly cat pee. Med + body. There’s a whole lot of citrus for flavor with some light chocolate/dark malt support. Seems to get a bit of fruit/floral towards the finish. Finishes bitter, dryish and tasty. Nice!
