Bottle shared with timber and wazzy. Surprisingly lacks in aroma - but then again itís like minus fifty outside. Love the taste, hoppy, malt, bread. Always good

From bottle in Belgian ale glass. Outstanding mix of hop and malt aroma that carries through to rich taste on the palate. Brings together the best of both worlds like a good black&tan. Another beer Iím glad to see available in QLD!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bomber purchased from Grocery Outlet of all places.
Pours a very thick hazy darker brown with a large thick and frothy tan head.
Spicy rye and malt aromas..seems like citrus and floral hopping very strong, off course darker roast coffee from the malts..very nice.
Taste is darker malts, dark dried fruit and espresso coffee some candy and rye spice and the hops take a back seat but they are there.
The mouthfeel is just very nice and thick but with enough carbonation to move it..no alcohol tasted.
A good beer but i am sure this is past its best being at GC.

Superb. Almost black with lacing tan head. Citrus aromas... big malt roast flavours, with a sharp citrus hop backbone... slightly spicy. Dry bitter finish. Has the most amazing mouthfeel Iíve had from a Black IPA, almost like a stout, really thick and oily. Best BIPA Iíve had to date.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Rich dark brown coloured body with a nice, two centimetre tall tan head that fades relatively fast. Aroma of super pungent and resinous hop notes of pine, grapefruit, citrus and a nice pleasant sweet honey smell as well. Medium to Full-bodied; Deep rich malty flavour with a good grassy and herbal flavour at first and a pungent hop character showing some nice sweetness and a very fragrant flavour at the end as well - complex and super balanced. Aftertaste shows a touch of the alcohol warmth, but after that, a great hop character with a touch of the rye grain noticeable, but just a roasty flavour that shows well against the pungent hops. Overall, a very interesting, well-balanced and rich beer that shows very well in the category and overall - great to try, especially on draught/growler and especially for a nice price. I sampled this beer on draught in a thirty-two ounce growler for US$8,99 from Total Wine in Alexandria, Virginia on 05-July-2015 sampled a day later at home in Washington.

bottle at home from brewdog online
dark brown tinged black with fluffy grey-beige head. fruity citrus and sticky gingerbread on nose, full bodied, wel intergrated alcohol and full flavoured without any roast character. a very good BIPA but the ABV is a little excessive, can certainly feel it in your head by end of bottle.

Keg, Brewdog Leicester. Dark brown with red tints and a beige head. Earthy coffee with juicy, bitter grapefruit and oak barrel. Boozy with bready yeast and leafy green, herbal pine. Gritty dark chocolate with bready yeast. So drinkable for its strength. Great.

Gerat rye IPA. Lots of spice, and plenty of woody aromas and flavors, like cider and oats and tangy toffee. Some orange and citrus notes. Full and complex. Drying rich finish.
