5000 (6239) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle:   Super deep ruby, large pillowy sandy head, nice lacing.   Pith and pine on the nose.   Soft sweetness, a little citrus peel.   On the tongue its the same, pine, astringent pith, citrus peel, hoppy.   Wished it were a bit sweeter.   Has a moderate amount of sweetness, but could use a touch more to balance the astringent pith and citrus peel.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Feels a bit chewy, but quickly fades.   Lingering pith and citrus peel.   Pretty good, a bit above average.

Pours a reddish orange color with a foamy head. Nose is hoppy and full of resin and pine . Taste is bitter and hoppy. Finish is bitter as well, not as flavorful as I expected. Quaff Score 5 / 10

zgaier (1359) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - MAR 4, 2013
Pours red brown with a tan head and hoppy aroma. Taste is bitter and toasty, of massive hops, caramel, and citrus with a heavy bitter, long finish.

Mora2000 (5650) - McKinney, Texas, USA - FEB 24, 2013
Thanks to 5000 for sending me this bottle. Pours a hazy reddish brown color with a white head. The aroma has a lot of biscuit and red malt in it, as well as a hint of pine. The flavor is more of the same. The grass and pine notes meld well with the strong malt backbone. There is also a decent amount of bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

mcberko (6272) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 13, 2013
22 oz. bottle, pours a deep dark amber with a medium off-white head. Aroma of citrusy hops, light roasted malt and some feint tropical fruits. Flavour is rich, with fruity, citrusy hops, moderate roasted malt character, and a bit of caramel malt. Great balance between the hops and malt, with a moderate sweetness. Great one here.

Aubrey (3431) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JAN 8, 2013
Murky and burgundy-brown. Snappy, assertive hops from start to finish. Lots of pine, resin and grass, followed by a nip of citrus. Healthy amount of bitterness. Malt side is somewhat roasted and toasty, which seems to be its main deviation from being a black IPA. Also has a grainy nuttiness to it, which builds over time. Subtle scorched-toffee sweetness is easily kept in check by the hop bitterness and a hint of burntness. Tasty beer.

Bacterial (1505) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - JAN 7, 2013
Pour from 22oz bottle. Dark dark red pour. Some tan lacing. Pine and faint citrus on the nose. Nicely hopped, strong pine and grapefruit. A very nice beer!

BrewDad (4890) - Olympia, Washington, USA - DEC 24, 2012
Dark brown with a hint of red. Clear with a thin head. Big hops and malt flavors and aroma. I do get some piney and light citrus flavors. This was a big tasty black beer. Thanks Tim for the taste.

riversideAK (5625) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - DEC 18, 2012
Piney and floral hops on the nose, rather pungent hoppiness really. Toasted malts, a little sweetness, and some vodka. Pours darker auburn/amber. Thin head and lace. The flavor consists of pine and floral hops, toasted malts, a little roast, a little sweetness, and vodka. After the vodka comes an assertive and rather agressive hop bitterness. Lingering hops and a little booze. Good.
