On tap at Parker pie. Opaque brown black pour with super lacy tan head. Aroma is super hoppy, very dank, grassy hop, light roast. Taste is bitter, lots of juicy fresh hop flavor, oatmeal malty notes, very hop heavy (very tasty). Palate is med bodied and creamy, light carbonation. Quite good.

Pours a dark brown with a thick tan head. The aroma is pungent citrus, with notes of grapefruit followed by chocolate. The flavor is moderately bitter

Draft at the Blackback. Pours a dark black, fairly clear for a dark, and had a medium off white head to it. Aroma had some coffee, pine, resin to it. Flavor was very good and not what I was expecting. Surprisingly very hoppy. I got notes of citrus, pine, resin, coffee, and hints of chocolate. Medium body, thin texture, average carbonation. Mildly bitter on the finish. Overall, one of the better black IPAs.

Another offline rating from last December. Taster at the source. Jet black with a nice head. Smell was very hop forward, like I would expect from HF "lighter" hoppy ales, roasted malts, slight cocoa, and a bit of hay. Taste again with the hops, piney, resin, slight juicy citrus, roast, bit of cocoa, and a nice bitterness. Best I have ever had of the black IPA style.

catching up with an old rating from 2010. From a growler thanks jedwards! Appears super dark cola color with a nice tan head than falls to a blanket. Smell is citrus, chocolate and dark malt. The taste is slightly sweet up front, lightly bitter in the middle with a subtle dryness on the aftertaste. Medium body with elegant, smooth fine carbonation.

750mL swing top thanks to GT2 via yourefragile. Thanks! Great appearance : opaque black with a fluffy tan head. Webby lacing. Aroma is peat moss, ash, wet earth. Taste is woody, bitter, hints of fresh grapefruit juice paired with coffee. Strange combination of aromas and flavors that don’t meld as well as its rivals. Palate is okay, thinner, needs more body. Feels overly bitter and sharp. Definitely good beer but disappointing for hill farmstead.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - JAN 31, 2013
750mL flip-top growler big thanks to yourefragile! Dark sepia pour, clearish. Thick mocha head erupts. Sheen, rocky retention. Big swathes of lace. Nose is soft, peaty, some spicy melon like chili powder rubbed pomelo (Thai snack),chocolate milkshake. Taste is light bodied like a 5% oatmeal stout, bitter, roasty, coffee heavy, some light soil and earthiness. Palate is lighter, bitter, easy to drink than expected. As it warms, it really gains some silkiness, mild alcohol warming, fudge, ganache. Palate really improves density at warm temperatures. Really nice improvement. Goes from a 3.7 to a 3.9 for me. Delicious but delicate, could easily be under appreciated if you don’t let it warm up and see how it evolves. I really liked it, especially how it is sessionable at 6.5%. Well done.

Draft at lord hobo. Best black IPA to date. Big roast, chocolate, big piney bitterness. Full creamy mouthfeel . Roast and pine feed off of each other beautifully. Great beer

Tap at prohibition pig. Notes of banana cream pie. Touch of roasted coffee. Pleasant juicy grapefruit hop presence. Wheat roast grapefruit hop actually work quite well together. Tasty interesting brew. Liked quite a bit. Dry. Nice body. Nice.
