COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Her er den ene halvdel af en ‘Black and Tan’ øl. Ikke hvilken som helst Black and Tan, men den hvor en opblæst, tyktflydende stodder og en tilbagelænet, humlet fyr mødes, og perfekt øl-balance opstår. Bland Yang med Yin, eller nyd denne flabede gode Imperial IPA solo.

fidelis83 (2003) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - JUL 21, 2013
Hazy copper pour with a 2 finger, creamy beige head that has great retention and leaves a little lacing. Aroma of blood orange- like citrus hops, floral, grassy, spicy and light tropical hops, toast, biscuit, light caramel and a little cat box and pine, more noticeable as it warms. Flavor is caramel, white bread crust, sweet fruity notes, the hops roll in with some nice, sweet citrus, resinous hops, light mango/tropical fruit, bitter sweet grass and a light, nutty, almond like note in the fairly bitter, grapefruit finish. Medium body with and amazingly creamy entry, all the way up to the creamy, but slightly dry finish. The dryness lingers and becomes pretty astringent after that. Carbonation is light, to moderate, with a somewhat sharp feel. Very good overall, though the finish is a bit bracingly bitter and a little medicinal after an otherwise fairly sweet IIPA drink.

flatmatt (1154) - Northville, Michigan, USA - DEC 18, 2014
12 oz bottle. Pours a lightly hazed orange amber, but with lots of small to medium particles, and an off-white head. Very juicy citrus aroma, fruity berry, pine. Flavor is more pine, grassy, and floral hops, still some citrus in there, though. Tastes a bit stale. Still pretty good, though.

VT (1666) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 11, 2014
355 ml bottle. Pours a very flaky copper amber with a resilient, thick white head. Aroma is tea, herbal tea, caramel, fruits, citrus. Flavor is loads of fruits, citrus, caramel, resin, cedar and pine. Finish is herbal, grapefruit, resin, pine....very bitter. Lingering tea, fruit and booze. Full body, sticky, oily mouthfeel and weak carbonation.

fakebeersnob (182) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - DEC 9, 2014
Bought this along with the Yin to make the Black and Tan. Wanted to try both solo first. Smells like light citrus, very subtle pine, and a bit of lemon. Pours a cloudy orange/copper. Lacing is clumpy. Taste: hoppy. Light pine, but more citrus. Feels a tingle on the tongue, but can feel the taste all the way to the in throat (weird sensation, but not unpleasant). The citrus (grapefruit) hits upfront but the back lingers more of pine. Overall, I like this. Maybe not at the price point (but that could change while trying the black and tan Yin and Yang.)

freretoc (819) - Besançon, FRANCE - DEC 7, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 33cl à la brasserie, couleur blonde très trouble,, mousse blanche, effervescence moyenne, une bière avec une grosse attaque sur l’amertume, on ressent le fruit de la passion et le houblon citronné, mais en très grosse quantité. Un peu pateu en bouche pas assez fine en fin de bouche.

pictoman (605) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 7, 2014
Poured from 12 fl oz bottle. Cloudy dark orange with off-white head. Caramel and toffee malt with grapefruit and piney hops. The taste gives a surprising hint of subtle chocolate. Medium body, resinous finish.

Renobob (830) - Besançon, FRANCE - DEC 6, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 33cl. Grosse amertume pour cette IPA. L'alcool tape bien et l'amertume est de plus en plus présente. Goûtée également en blend avec la Yin et étonnamment c'est très bon ;)

dnicolaescu (938) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - DEC 5, 2014
BOTTLE 12 OZ. Bottled FEB-2014. Lots of fruity caramel malts, balanced by an equally impressive amount of hops (less so in aroma, unfortunately). The result is what I call "a hoppy candy". Medium body, alcohol well hidden.

bulldogops (1108) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 30, 2014
Rating #1103 - May 24, 2014 - Spring Fling at Liquor Select - Bottle 10%. Pours a darker amber, with a bubbly tan head. Aroma is citrusy, lemony, piney hops predominant. Taste is extremely hoppy, tempered with a pleasant cookie dough malty sweetness that disguises the higher abv quite well, mild lemon, mild pine, mild resin. Phenomenal good DIPA that tempers the evil of the Yin in an ultimate craft beer geek’s Black and Tan.

Tasty Imperial IPA. Hard to believe it's 10% ABV. nice subtle citrus and pine favors. Moderate after taste that is only mildly bitter. Over very good IPA.
