Pours very dark brown with nice off-white head. Mid range hoppy aroma. Roasty middle with dry finish. OK - a ways to go before its the Stone Self-Righteous.

Cracking open the bottle unleashes loads of west coast hops - grapefruit being the big player. In the glass its a clear dark brown with a touch of red around the edges. Thin, but lingering head. Aroma remains the same (good). Taste. Opens very IPA-ish - doing this blindfolded I wouldn’t guess it was dark. But part way through, and mostly on the finish. there is a bit of a roasty kick that comes in. All in all though I would like a bit more of a roasty punch to this. And maybe a touch more body.

22 oz. bottle from curly- thanks, Jason! Pours a dark copper-brown with a big, foamy tan head. Aroma of citrusy hops, toasted malts, powdery chocolate, and dust. Flavor of citrusy hops, grapefruit, roasted malts, wood, chocolate, and coffee. Light-medium bodied, with a citrusy, bitter, toasty mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Really nice take on the style, and I’ve been impressed with everything from HUB I’ve tried so far.

Powertrip (1000) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 10, 2011
Single bottle purchased from Co-op Liqour Store in Calgary, AB on 05/25/2011. Colour: Extremely dark red with hints of brown and low white head. Nose: Maple laced coffee, chai spice, yeast. Hops are abundant and full of fresh zest. Taste: Medium-light sweet, medium bitter, light sour. Tea leaves, and lots of them. Earl Grey? Some buttered toast pops its head in to say hi. Touch of soap. Hops are consistent. End trails off characterwise and leaves solid bitterness.

Bomber thanks to Mike. Pours a dark brown color with a medium beige head and lots of lacing. A fruity pine hop nose, quite rich. The flavor is a light roast, caramel, rich cascade and some syrupy amarillo, light bitterness. Tasty but missing a real heft. This is dominated by PNW hops, perhaps a heavier roast would be nice. Still, quite nice.

UPDATED: JUL 8, 2012 Somewhat disapointing for the style, as a beer. Fresh bottle from Zyn in Calgary. Black body, high IBU, more roastiness in he flavour. Lacey Lots of really roasty as in burnt parts. Hops and citrus in finish. Lace rings. Grows on me, but I am just OK on it.

Solid solid CDA right here. I love this style. Nice and roasty up front, backed with mild dark fruit flavors and sweeter malts. Mild hints of chocolate. And then of course, hopped up near the back! All the flavors blend perfectly. This is something I’d love to see in 6er’s...

Pour is a dark brown with tons of ruby red highlights. The head is beautifully creamy looking and a light beige. The head looks absolutely delicious. Aroma is hop forward with a large grapefruit hop. Roasty espresso, chocolate and burnt notes. The middle is sweet and sweet with a dark roasty malt and coffee. The finish is quite bitter and finishes with a burnt roasted coffee bean flavour. I love this beer as a CDA or Black IPA. Very sweet, roasty and hoppy. Hand in hand, they work together in this beer.
