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.

UPDATED: FEB 26, 2012 750ml growler from a recent trade. thank you.... pours a deeper blackish mahogany leaning somwehat in the porterish black quality although hints of red throughout. a soapy fluffy off-white head rests on top and retreats to a little less of it’s former self... aroma is piney dank fresh hoppiness upfront, green and pungent while still being enticing and welcoming. a mild roast quality co-exists but play a subordinate role. cohesiveness definitely achieved between the two complimenting qualities... piney citrus qualites extrememly evident upfront with a less intense roasted malt and cocoa character following quickly behind. the intermingling between the two is friendly and have a nice rapport. more fresh green hops develops through the middle and finishes off on a slightly more roasted note. shy of medium bodied with adequate carbonation. solid but i prefer the other black ipa just a hair more but i’d more than gladly have either.

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.

Tap at Blind Tiger. Super dank hoppy nose, lots of citrus, some roast and chocolate. Taste is fairly dry, lots of bitter chocolate, light brown sugar, boat loads of earthy and citrus pith hops. Rocking.

~ 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.

On tap at Capones. Pours a black color with beige head. Medium bodied. Aromas of citrus, wheat, cherry/lemon, kind of reminded me of motueka. Taste is roasted malts, fruits, some chocolate, and other spicy tones. Very good,

ReggieDunlap (3005) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 14, 2013
Pours black with a medium creamy tan head...nice lacing and retention. Aroma has bitter dark chocolate and mild pine. Flavor has slightly more pine, burnt/roastiness, dark chocolate, and even a hint of espresso...fairly bitter. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is roasty/piney and very bitter...dry and lingering.
