12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 3/4/2013. Pours pitch black color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of huge mango, passionfruit, tangerine, caramel, toast, floral, light roast, and floral earthiness. Nice and interesting aromas with huge tropical hop presence and minimal malts. Taste of mango, passionfruit, tangerine, orange zest, roasted malt, light char, toast, coffee, floral, and roasted earthiness. Fair amount of floral bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, tropical, roasted malt, light char, toast, and floral on the finish for a bit. Good complexity of roasted malt and hop flavors; with a good malt/hop balance and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly creamy and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a good black IPA. Good balance of malt and hop flavors; and smooth to sip on. An enjoyable offering.

DrSilverworm (6416) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 12, 2013
12oz bottle, shared with DanielCoor. Dark brown, slightly red color. More clear around the edges, but from a reasonable distance, more than dark enough for a black IPA. Medium body. More dry texture. Good, super-smooth lighter carbonation. Nice piney, lightly earthy, light herbal hop aroma. Good, light roasted malt aroma, a nice balanced amount. Lightly toasty, just a hint of burnt / ashiness. Good herbal bitterness, light sweet taste in the finish. Very tasty aftertaste. Super good, drinkable, and tasty. Was not expecting that, as I was told that this was less than fresh. Very fresh, assertive, citrusy piney nose. Much better than expected, very solid

Draft at Sheffield. Pours black with creamy tan head. Aroma of hops and cocoa. Thick and rich. Good half IPA half porter combo - very well done.

Mittenator (1305) - Michigan, USA - APR 4, 2013
Bottle. Near black pour with a beige head. Strong hop aroma, sugar, coffee and chocolate. Much more malt and coffee in the flavor. The hops are totally overpowered.

TheBear11D (242) - Michigan, USA - APR 3, 2013
Anger pours a dark chocolate color with a thick dark brown head that leaves lacing everywhere. The aroma is sharp floral hops. Floral hops are the backbone of this beer. Overall this is an enjoyable brew. I would recommend you have one if you enjoy IPAs. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ReggieDunlap (3080) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 29, 2013
pours black with a thin tan head. aroma has charred notes, caramel, a touch of anise, and a bit of a magic marker note. flavor is roasty with good burnt bitterness...notes of anise and citrusy hops...thankfully no magic marker taste. mouthfeel is medium and silky with a dry burnt/bitter roasty/dark fruit/anise finish.

Atom (1346) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 29, 2013
12oz bottle pours a dark brown/black with a large tan head. Aroma of floral and resinous hops, citrus, with caramel and roasted malts. Taste of upfront piney hops and citrus ending with bitterness and dark malts. A nice balance all the way through, very drinkable.

milewide (1514) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAR 25, 2013
Too much "Black" and too little "IPA". A decent brew, but leans too much on the dark malts. Almost a porter.

Bottle fromMikem409. First bottle I?ve opened that had part of the glass top break and fell into the bottle. Black pour with creamy tan head. Aroma is piney hops and roast. Taste is nice roast and hints of biterness. Pretty good.
