UPDATED: NOV 24, 2012 On tap at Bad Apple. Pours dark brown with tan head. Aromas of pine, citrusy hops, and a fair amount of bready malts. Flavors of chocolate, bitter hops, citrus, and some pine. Nice black IPA.

In short: A roasted and citrusy Black IPA of above average quality.
How: Growler shared at Camping Brewdown 2012.
The look: Very near black body topped by a small beige head
In long: Nose is inviting with pleasant bright hop aroma (mostly citrusy but also a bit grassy) and a good roast. Taste has highly roasted blackened malts with some of the usual suspects of this type of malt backbone (cacao sensation, ground coffee), nothing fruity here. Hopping shines, mostly citrusy, bitterness of medium intensity. The roast and bitterness create a somewhat dry finish. Good mouthfeel with a lot of soft bubbles. My type of Black IPA, an above average example of the style. Another good growler shared at week-end long Camping Brewdown 2012, that party was so epic that it should have been narrated by Morgan Freeman.

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

DrSilverworm (8172) - 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

Pours dark brown. Smell is full of hops. Taste is very hoppy with citrus with an underlying sweetness. Finishes with lingering bitterness. Very good beer from a young brewery.

brokephibroke (294) - Mead, Colorado, USA - JUL 2, 2013
Bottle from trade with Silphium. Deep black pour with red hues, latte like head. aroma is sweet malt with some raw herbs. Smooth chocolate up front with roasted coffee. Bitter linger denotes the happiness. To me this is almost a stout. The choice of hops makes this a unique beer. The simcoe dominates to me.

Bottle. Pours a dark black color with a large loose wispy java head. Nose is deep citrus with notes of resin and pine. Taste is hoppy and bitter and well balanced with deep chocolate malts. Finish is bitter, dry, with moderate lingering. A very tasteful and flavorful BIPA. Quaff Score 8 / 10

ben4321 (4546) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUL 30, 2014
Location: Draft at Girl and the Goat, 7/5/14

Aroma: The nose is a nice mix of chocolate malts and pine/resiny hops
Appearance: It pours a dark brown color with a nice forth of tan/light brown head
Flavor: The taste is similar to the nose, nice balance, some sweetness, but leans bitter
Palate: The body is medium, it has a solid mouthfeel, smooth, with a decent dryness
Overall Impression: A very nice example of the style overall. I enjoyed this beer, and I also thought it held up well with the food at this excellent restaurant.
