A haughty black ipa with a bit of pent-up attitude for those "special" days. Our addicting little black IPA using Belgian dark malts and dry-hopped for intense aroma. 7.6% ABV and 85 IBUís. Release some bottled-up Anger and learn to enjoy life a little.

A little raw tasting but alot going on. I like the hops and dark malt backbone play. Definitely not one sided. But still not real clean on either hops taste a little vege and raw but all in all not bad...they will smooth out the edges and this will be a very fine beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle shared at Kickbacks. Pours a dark brown black with a tan head. Aromas of orange and pine. Slightly woody. Taste is balanced between bitter and roasty. Very good black IPA.

SG111 (673) - New York, USA - OCT 8, 2015
Bottled 07/08/15. Just about 90 days on it. Pour into tulip, black, almost chestnut as the light shines through on the pour. Big mocha colored head, very creamy. Looks good. First whiff, I get a big piece of candied orange, or some tropical fruit, maybe pineapple, def. citrus notes. But the power of that dissipates quickly into heavy roasted malt notes. Coffee dominant, some mild chocolate. Malt is really nice. If you dig for it, the citrus is there, but itís almost more of a hoppy stout. As for flavor,the stout qualities really dominate, but this may be b/c itís 90 days past bottling, maybe fresher itíd be more citrus-y. Still not into stout territory, but getting there. Roasted malt, chocolate, mild citrus in there except for the hop bite where the hops resurface. Pretty solid mouthfeel on that bad boy. Itís a good black IPA. Is it the best? No, but itís def. something Iíd drink again.

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 5, 2015
Bottle:   Black, very nice light khaki head, fine bubbles, very sticky lacing... probably one of the better looking Black IPAs.   Spicy nose, like a spiced dark chocolate.   Smooth on the tongue, sweet roasted malts, with that dark chocolate with a hint of some sort of spice.   I want to say some sort of cinnamon and maybe some chilies.   Very interesting, and different.   Smooth on the tongue, almost full bodied.   Clean finish, soft roasted malts, a bit sweet, with the aformentioned spices.   This one is very unique, and very welcomed.   Great example!

Very dark and very good. Chocolate notes mixed with hearty hops. This is a great example of a black ipa. Must try.

This black IPA pours a giant, foamy head with a nose of anise and resiny hops. First taste is of mild tobacco and black pat malt, then fades into roasty bitterness. Head retention is good. A medium bodied brew and a solid brew. Would like more juicy hops in this to make it stand out.

Damico (3003) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 3, 2015
Pours thick dark coffee in color with a lady beige head. The aroma is light roasted not quite burnt coffee. Flavor is nice roasted coffee notes and pretty subtle hops after that.

thedm (5214) - Fort Wayne, USA - JUN 26, 2015
This draft beer from a beer bar poured a small sized head of fine to medium sized mostly diminishing brown colored bubbles that left behind an opaque dark black colored body with no visible carbonation and a fair lacing. The aroma was mild with black malty notes. The palate was tingly from start to finish with a lingering black malt hoppy note. The flavor was good with strong black hops and a mild roasted malt note. A very good example of a Black IPA and one I would not mind having again.

Greenbush equals great beer. They knock it out of the park again with this dark and malty black pirates beer of an ipa. Enjoy.

12 oz pour at watershed in Chicago. Wonderful aroma of pine hops and roasted malt. Tasted fantastic with the same taste as was the aroma with a full bodied mouthfeel. Would definitely, and will drink again.
