UPDATED: NOV 25, 2012 Overall, a very drinkable beer. I consider this black ipa to be right up there with 21as back in black. Jeremy is proving to be a very capable brewer and definitely the best Brewer in Reno.

SDalkoholic (2146) - Linda Vista, California, USA - JAN 5, 2012
Bottle from South Bay Liquor: Created a monstrous thick fluffy head up top while the liquid was an opaque brown color. The aroma is mild and smells soapy with a minor scent of hops in the background. The flavor is smooth and evenly divided between the lightly roasted malts and a minimal addition of hops that in the end comes across as a tame and timid black IPA recipe.

BMan1113VR (7858) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 29, 2011
Bottle. Pours with a lightly hazed, very deep brown body with a large, khaki head with good lace and retention. Aromas are malty, crystal, brown sugar, light roast. Dusty chocolate. Some pine and citrus. Lightly spicy. Flavors are roasty, bitter, lightly spicy, a touch astringent. Pine, mild citrus. Lingering and lasting bitter. Lighter carbonation, chalky and dry.

Hophead22 (2880) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - DEC 24, 2011
22oz bottle. Rating #7. Very dark pour, almost black, but more of an extremely dark brown. Thin head, beigein color with a bit of lacing. Roasted hop aroma, a little coffee maybe with some sweet touches here and there. Big aggressive bitterness up front from a mix of hops and roasted malts. Lingering bitter aftertaste, not a huge bite, but it has a faint lingering on the sides of the tongue at the back of my mouth. Tasty overall. (2065)

marcus (6499) - Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 21, 2011
Bottle from Beer Revolution. Pours pitch black with a nice tan head and a citrus aroma. There is a smooth chocolate malt flavor with plenty of hop bitterness. Relatively balanced and tasty.

bhensonb (11074) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 22, 2011
Bomber from Beer Revolution. Pours black with a 2 finger creamy tan head. Aroma of lots of resin? hop over some dark roast malt. Med + body. Flavor seems a mix of resin/floral/grapefruit over smooth dark malt. It seems to rapidly become mostly grapefruit, imparting a hop burn. Very nice stuff.

Ratman197 (9808) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - NOV 20, 2011
Bomber poured a clear dark reddish brown with a lasting tan head. Aromas of charcoal, roastiness, grapefruit, pine and light cocoa. Palate was medium bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of charcoal, roastiness, grapefruit and a hint of pine with a crisp dry bitter lingering roasty finish.

Can’t believe this IPA is black. Nive hoppy aroma and flavor. What I like about this beer is that is doesn’t have a lot of dark malt flavors to it, but it’s still black.

oteyj (2130) - New Hampshire, USA - APR 13, 2011
Dark brown with a 1.5 finger brownish head. The aroma is earth citrus and pine with a nice backbone of roasted malts. The flavor is much the same, with various citrus and evergreen incarnations to balance out a bitter roasted caramel malt profile. The palate is medium for the style with supple effervescence.

craftycarl21 (2227) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 10, 2011
Dark plum colored pour with a large cola colored head. Aroma holds sticky citrus, resinous hop, some bitter roast, and nice grassy presence as well. Flavor is quite tasty, with a good balance of porter-like malt character with the aforementioned orange, grapefruit, and pine hoppiness. Average mouthfeel. Pretty good stuff.
