Pours a dark black with a very foamy, long-lasting tan head. Has an aroma of pine and roasted malts. Flavor is roasted malts with some pine and bitterness. Flavors are blended together perfectly. Delicious.

A very nice take on what is fast becoming one of my favorite styles. Coffee and chocolate up front, mild bitterness in back. Dark appearance with nice head. Picked this one up in Grand Rapids on my trip to Toronto in 2013.

12 oz bottle. The pour is a brilliant dark brown/black that you can't see through. There is a nice light khaki colored head that fades down to a nice film, leaving some nice lace as it goes. The aroma is quite hoppy and citrusy for a dark beer, which is just lovely. There is a light roasted malt character on the very end. The flavor shows a little roast on the front and then fades through a great hoppiness. There isn't lovely lingering aftertaste and the mouth feel is just right for a nice DIPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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!

Dark and thick-looking black pour with a billowing tan head. The smell is intruiging, it is liek a chocolate cherry pie, there are also elements of roast, pine, and citrus. Not hoppy in the smell but wow what a nice malt scent. The flavor brings the hops. The nice thing is they arent overly furity or citrusy they provide backing support but don’t clash with the malt. It leaves the beer a dry, bitter, cocoaey type ipa. Not super sweet, very nice.

On tap at Blackthorn Pub, Holly,MI...this could easily pass as an Imperial Stout as it is deep black and viscous. But it is balanced with a green leafiness and a delightful funk that was very appealing. My first Greenbush tap...outstanding!

A dense black IPA with a great roasted malt texture and scent. Superbly blended with a lot of nice grains going on. Chocolate, malt, wheat, and hop notes all mix nicely.
