3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Brewery Creek, Vancouver
Black color, with medium sized beige head. Very nice aroma of coffee, some roasted malt, light dust and hops. Good body structure, dark chocolate and coffee flavor, quite dry mouthfeel, with a strong bitterness; it ends with loads of roasted malts, and hidden hop resins, but never ashy. Very good.

light brown, slight lime nose with toast and woody hop character. Earthy front, sweet, has some mellow haselnuss character, with toasted almonds, bitter chocolate. Sweeter interpretation, leaning towards the old India brown idea.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours very dark brown with a 3 finger creamy tan head. The aroma is hop. Seems rather resin. Med plus body. Flavor is some sweet charred caramel with pine/citrus/floral/godonlyknows hop. It’s very bitter. Much more charred than other BIPAs. I can imagine a touch of coffee. The nose is great. The taste is great. It has much more oomph than 6.5% would suggest. A really great ale.

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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
draft. deep brown with cola colored edges and a tan head. up front it’s licorice astringent black patent and roast with cheesecloth yeast / hop character... so it has the bitterness of the roasts grains with an oily soy sauce flavor, and a terribly thinning and acidic / fizzy texture. weak malt structre throughout, and lacks pretty much any aromatic hop character
expected in IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at the Tap House Grill in Seattle. Pours reddish-brownish-black with a medium fluffy light beige head that diminishes steadily. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt and hops. Medium body with flavors of sweet roasted malt and resiny hops. The finish is piney hops up front and leaves a sweet malty aftertaste. Decent overall.
