COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dark and beautiful, this is the love child of American hops and German malt. Floral perfume and sultry smokiness blend to make a unique beer that you’ll find hard to quit.

On tap at Edley’s BBQ. Almost black pour with a tan head that sticks around. Really loved the smell of this one, nice biscuity dark grain and hops. Taste is mostly bread and grain with a very slight hop presence. Better than Terrapins IBA imo. Pleasantly surprised.

Hoppy bitter bite but more a chalky bitter bite than something enjoyable. Sweet start but very average. Not super impressed not bad good average beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pint at the brewery. This is one of the lightest bodied black IPA’s I’ve had and that is not a detriment at all. The malty body comes across like lighter roasted coffee with citrusy hops highlighting things. It’s clean with a dryish finish. Semi sweet cacao hints provide some balance. Very solid beer, interesting approach to the style.

shadey (1879) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 11, 2013
On tap at brewery. Also grabbed one of their nice Black Betty T-shirts. Black pour with a nice frothy cream head. Roasty and dark bitter chocolate. Light body. Subdued hops compared to many black IPAs. Good.

Great Black IPA. A little more malt forward than hops. Coffee, roasted malt flavor with a hoppy undertone. Solid.

Suttree (5041) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 24, 2013
Dark brown (not black, but I’m not holding it against ’em). Smells like coffee and pine, with hints of burnt toast. Pretty much the same players in the flavor, too. Very crisp and refreshing. I liked it. Sampled at 2013 ENBF.

16 oz draft pours black with a off white head. Aroma of citrus and roasted malts. Taste is the malts, citrus and pine. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma is light with citrus and floral. Taste is a little hop bitterness and grain bitterness with not much hop flavor.

Brown black pour with a tan head and lace. Light roasted malt and resiny hops. Roasted malt, burnt coffee, and a hard astrigent bitter. Medium bodied and foamy.

Awesome, strong, full bodied black IPA. This one will wake up your taste buds, but won’t dull you when you’re ready to change to something else.
