On tap at Greenbush Brewpub. Dark brown with ruby lowlights and thin off-white head. Aroma of cat pee, pine, resin, caramel and roasted malts. Taste is resinous with high alpha hops, lightly roasted malt, bubble gum, citrus and finishes up moderately bitter. Nice effort, I enjoyed this one!

patrick767 (3590) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - JUN 21, 2014
bottle - Pours black with a one finger, tan head. The aroma is of roast malt with underlying citrus. It tastes of roasted malt with high bitterness and some nice pine character. It works.

This is a dark beer with a big foamy beige head. Some cereal grains, some of them burnt, and citrus hops in the nose. Strong grapefruit juice and pine hop flavors with some roasted grains and burnt toast flavors. There is a wet caramel sweetness. The is a full flavored, sweet hoppy beer.

growler... dark brown with a light tan head, held up good for a growler... this is on the roastier spectrum for a black ipa but if you enjoy that you’re going to love this, excellent

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 5, 2011
Draft at Kuma’s. Pours a slightly murky dark brown verging on black, tan head. Nose is a blast of roast, floral hops, citrus and pine. The roast is too much for the style here. Lots of hops come across, though. On tasting, light savory roast is set aside for the strongly citrusy hop profile. Very firm bitterness enhanced by the drying roast. Clean fermentation but the roastiness is a bit distracting, keeping it from hitting the upper echelon. Solid.

Headbanger (3386) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUN 8, 2013
12oz bottle 6/8/13 (Binny’s Downers Grove Mix a Six)-40° in Shaker-Pours black with a small loose tan head. Aroma of hops, chocolate, and coffee. Taste of the same with more chocolate and coffee. This medium to full bodied brew has a lot darker tastes and is still easily drinkable. Great brew.

Full pour and first pint had at greenbush, rated last... Pours a deeper mostly opaque dark reddish black hue. A reluctant wispy ring if light beige head rests on top... Aroma of green citrusy pine hope, lighter roast and grain on the backend. Solid and without that yeast character. Thank goodness for that... Flavors follow suit consistently with a similar hop profile with more of a firmly planted roasted malt and grain presence. Medium bodied with adequate carbonation. A slightly bitter roast finish presents itself late.
