750mL swingtop growler shared by yourefragile. Served in a Hill Farmstead wine glass. Pours black with a good tan head and some nice lacing on the way down. Thin collar throughout. The nose carries a good dosing of roast plus a really nice bouquet of pine hops with just a touch of citrus. Flavor has a nice roasty character with a bit of a dry maltiness in the background. Nice hops throughout. Finishes bitter and dry; just right. Really good brew.

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,

750ml from brewery. Pours a slick black color with a big three finger off white foam that sticks and laces nicely. Aromas a re roasted chocolate, citrus and pine. On the palate its lighter than I expected... it poured like a porter but the mouthfeel is much more inline with an IPA. Great rasted chocolate notes provide a great base for some ripe clean hop flavors of pine and citrus. A nice clean refreshing finish that is more hop bitterness than roasty malty stickiness. A true black ipa that is another must try from the Hill !

Growler at my parents house, shared with my dad. Thanks Frank!!! Pour is pitch black with a pillowy brown head and great lacing. Pine, grass, roasted cocoa, light coffee, a touch of vanilla, and wood in the aroma. Pine needles, earthy hops, roasted malt, dark chocolate, bread, and graham crackers with a big bitter finish. Medium mouthfeel with medium-to-soft carbonation. Not my favorite HF beer, but a damn solid Black IPA.

750 mL growler. Thanks Tucker. Pours a clear dark brown, near black with a thick foam tan head. Good retention and sticky lacing throughout. Strong roast malt aroma with a strong punch of pine, light smoke and faint citrus. Flavor has a strong roast malt backbone with a subtle spice and breadiness throughout before a dry finish with strong pine hops and mild citrus sweetness. Enjoyed the balance of malt and hops more so with this than James. Creamy, medium thick body with light carbonation. A very nice black IPA with subtle rye spiciness.

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.

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.
