Excellent black IPa, from Champane’s. Black bodied, smooth, juicy more than roasty. A gem worth seeking out.

Pours black with a brown head and hops, citrus, and roasted malt. Taste is of hops, citrus, and grapefruit that is underlined by roasted malt and chocolate that come through into the bitter, roasty finish. Delicious black IPA

deaconmike (375) - Roswell, Georgia, USA - MAR 12, 2014
Bottle from my good friend in Grand Rapids. Pours nearly black with a mountainous foamy head that leaves behind sea foam type lacing. Aroma is pleasant with roast, coffee and heavy citrus hops. The sweetness of the malt and bitterness of the hops mellow each other out, but the flavor combination is slightly odd IMHO. The beer has a nice creamy mouthfeel and the body is medium to medium-full. Cool beer; worth trying.

Bottle thanks to mikem409, pours black wit ha thick light brown head and lacing all through the glass, aroma is of bright juicy hops with a balance of light malt and chocolate roast, the flavor has a roasty front end with a finish of citrus and fruit, chocolate as well, really balanced through out, nice stuff.

Taster at Standard Market, and I’m finally popping the cap on my first Greenbush beer, too. Oh, yes, Amarillo right up the nose on the first sniff. This would indeed be a beer to inspire anger. Black with some brown highlight, and a persistent stoutlike-head. Taste is hit up hard by catbox Amarillo and Simcoe, which overrides much of the malt profile. Still, I get some spiciness from wheat more than any roastiness. A very light mouthfeel makes up for the rough palate, light carbonation makes it feel almost like there was some nitro involved (which there wasn’t). Alcohol starts to kick in after the second ounce, so be careful not to swig this.

Similar to alpha king, very nice malt balance, hop presence. Semi jet black appearance.
