patrickfannon (1236) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 8, 2011
5 oz flight. Pours dark cherry mahogany with some crazy, sticky tan lacing. Aroma of pine hops, chocolate, soft black tea, and some resiny, citrusy hops. Full, sticky nearly chewy mouth feel with some heavy toasted chocolate and coffee notes. Excellent Black IPA.

BrewBoxer (1886) - New York, New York, USA - APR 8, 2011

egajdzis (5275) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 4, 2011
Hazy dark brown color with a medium sized, light tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of rye, roasted malts, citrus, and light burnt bread. Taste of roast, some ash, citrus, light pine, rye bread, and a hoppy finish.

theisti (3185) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - APR 1, 2011
~ 12 oz tulip glass draft at the Blind Tiger in New York City. Pour is dark brown, black with an ever so slight ruby twinge. Nice one inch off white head falls slowly with pretty lacing. Aroma is the rye up front, followed close behind with roast malt and pine hops. Really fresh clean and balance nose. Taste follows suit, rye, roasted malt and pine hops all nicely blended and well balanced. Palate is medium bodied, aftertaste lingers with the nice soft roastiness. Nice one.

jrallen34 (3478) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 30, 2011
Growler provided by Chris, drank from my Hill Farmstead glass... Dark brown body with a light tan head that is very bright. Good retention and lacing... The aroma is very nice lots of rye, coffee, hoppy finish... The taste has more hops than anything, a very hoppy rye beer. Light roast coffee with lots of pine hops. The roast and hops are perfectly intertwined and compliment each other perfectly. A great hoppy rye ipa.

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - MAR 27, 2011
On tap at the Blackback Pub & Fly Shop - Pours a quite dark brown/black in color with a hefty tan head. Aroma is quite hoppy... both pine and some citrus. Flavor was medium bitter and hoppy with a hefty dose of the rye’s spiciness filling in the middle. Finish is lingering and quite bitter.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAR 25, 2011
Draft. Pours a black body with a tan head. Hoppy body with nice spicy hop tones, light citrus notes, bitter dry and roast y. The hops almost resemble vines, nice and spicy, pricky with a nice subtle drying body and an earth y finish. Very easy drinking and delicious. Score another 4 for HF.
