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.

On tap at The Pony-HK. Pours dark brown with small tan head. Aromas of roast, pine, little wheat, and some fruit. Flavors much the same with nice amount and pine and roast with a little citrus and fruit. Lighter body which made it easy to drink. Good stuff.

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.

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.

Draft at W.o.R’s. Poured a blackish-brown with a smaller off white head. Aroma is very hoppy, pine and citrus, caramel and chocolate along with sweet dough. Flavor is basically the same as the aroma. Medium bidy with average carbonation.
