Pours dark brown with a huge, lacy tan head. Grapefruit hops and roasty malts in the aroma. Burnt dark malts on the palate along with sharp citrus hops. Lingering bitterness on the finish. Iím not a fan of this style but if you are this is a good one.

750ml bottle. Pours brown with a pale beige head thatís mostly lasting which leaves excellent lacing. Aroma is pine, citrus, fabulously fresh, fragrantly floral. Really great aroma! Lightly sweet, light to medium bitter taste, and dark malts. Medium body, average carbonation, thin to oily texture and a bitter finish. Aroma blows me away! Worth revisiting.

22 oz. bomber. Almost black, clear dark brown with humongous beige rocky head, fluffy lacing, head at leas 1 inch over the lip of the glass. Floral, citrusy hops with some roasty malt in the background. Wonderful!

Dal9000 (183) - Ohio, USA - NOV 9, 2013
22 oz bottle. Pours with a huge solid head. Actually mild for being so dark. It's a combo of IPA citrus pine with a light caramel taste. And the head was still there when I finished the glass. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Bookseeb (116) - Wenatchee, Washington, USA - OCT 23, 2013
Appearance has a nice dark brown amber color supporting a thick supporting head leaving fair lace. Smell has a nice balance of the malt and citric piney hop aroma. Taste is predominant black malt coming through with the sweeter palt malt coming through balanced by the hops. Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation. One of the more enjoyable BIPA Iíve had.
