Great black ipa really enjoyed. Poors a nice black with thin just off head the laces nicely. Aroma of slight chocolate roast, citrus slight pine and grapefruit. Little thin on the body but brilliant dry bitterness. Very nice.

<bottle> deep dark pour that is ruby red int he light. Bags and bags of hops, bags of them, but this does not finish overly dry and is all quaffable. The dark colour leads you on and draws you in to something, but this is an IPA all out, none of that fruits and sweets nonsense, just a banging good beer. Epic bitterness, lovely balance,may might do with some more body to make this the leader of the world in it’s class. Can I have another please.

Amazing initial aroma, so fruity! Great dry finish, malty and strong, a little smokey. Excellent winter beer. Cheers.

Was hoping this would be close to their "Repocalypse" (one of my all time favourite beers) - but it was not to be. Still an enjoyable brew - but somewhat lacking the usual Epic hop forward balance.

From tap at The Twisted Hop. Black as sin, but fragrant and hoppy aromas. Medium body with grapefruit and herbaceous hoppiness. Bitterness wasn’t in spadefuls like I was expecting, but for all that (and the always weird Black IPA incongruity), not a bad pint.

On tap at Scratch Bar. Good looking black colour. One of the better black IPA’s that I have had.
