On tap at The Oak Cafe. Really nice and true to IPA with a clean hoppy finish, but plenty of dark malt and syrupy flavors up front. Pours black in a dark bar, with a nice head.

First off, Iím not a big fan of black IPAs, but a beer buddy here in the office is a monster fan, so I get to try lots of them. Anger is black with a tiny tan head. The aroma is roasted grain, coffee, dark chocolate and booze. The taste is essentially identical, with citrus and pine hops thrown in. The roasting seems to be a tad on the burnt side. Anger isnít quite for me, but it is a quality beer nonetheless.

Black pour with a single finger espresso head. Lots of pine and citrus, along with a little grass. Creamy full mouth. Long bitter finish. Nice caramel sweetness with a little chocolate. Nice roast. Very easy drinking.

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.

patrick767 (3528) - 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.

From bottle. Pours opaque black with a big foamy head that stays forever. Huge lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus and roasted malts. Taste is bitter, citrus, roasted malts. rich and delicious. Medium mouthfeel. Bitter finish.

Homer321 (1744) - Rock Ridge, Florida, USA - MAY 1, 2014
Bottle, pours a dark brown to black with a large rocky light brown head. Nose is chocolate with some grassy notes. Smells like bakers chocolate and flour. Taste is a gawd awful burnt hop flavor at first. Yup, this is why I donít like Black IPAs. Just a muddled mess of hops, roast, and armpits. The hops and chocolate/roast are not balanced at all and fight each other for which can be most aggressive. and all they do is smother each other and the consumer is left with the bloody mess of the aftermath of a 12 round steel cage fight.

Aroma is pine, dark malts and a hint of mint. The flavor is grapefruit, hop resin, tangy notes and a mild/medium spicy/heat finish.

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

Taster at Standard Market, and Iím 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 wasnít). Alcohol starts to kick in after the second ounce, so be careful not to swig this.
