Formerly Tail Wagger Black IPA
A Big Bold Hoppy IPA that finishes with a dark twist.
True to its IPA roots Dogzilla has a massive hop presence that is Piney and Citrusy. A malty backbone, along with the dark malt gives it a bit of a roasty finish. Brewed with Simcoe and Cascade Hops, Pale Malt, Munich, and Black Barley.

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!

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

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.

Pours a really dark brown with a little light shining through and a small beige ring of foam around the glass. Aroma is roasted malts, cocoa and citrus. Flavour is citrus, pine, roasted malts, cocoa, and some malty sweetness.

Reimer96 (1491) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 17, 2013
Pours a ear brown color with a big frothy light brown head. Aroma of pine and citrus hops, roasted malts & a bit of cocoa. Taste is pine, citrus, chocolate, roasted barley and even more pine on the finish. Excellent black ipa with a great balance of roasted malts and citrus hops.

TempeCoyote (63) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 17, 2013
Brownish head with a dark but clear body that allows more light to pass through than expected. Roastiness in the aroma mixed with candy like caramel malt coming through. The hops show up after that, but not potent enough to turn it bitter. I prefer this to other black IPAs with bigger hop kick but suspect some hop fans will think it's not enough. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Chudwick (2416) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - OCT 16, 2013
bomber (date of 7/2/12) - pours black with huge ivory head and skeletal lacing. Nose is resin, citrus and roast. I was reluctant to write citrus. Lots more IPA and less Black. Disappointing for a style I like and brewery I respect. A good brew nonetheless. all kinds of bitterness and latent sweetness. Iím amazed to find out Iím giving this a 3.7 but I stand with my rating.

Bamsen78 (4273) - SÝnderborg, DENMARK - OCT 12, 2013
Draught @ Smoke and Barrel, Washington, D.C. Pours hazy very dark chocolate brown with small light tan head. Clear, bitter aroma with notes of roast and malt. Roasty flavour with sweetish notes of malt. Coffee-like aftertaste. Nice but I have tried better beers within this style.

Black/ruby...almost see-through with a giant, whipped vanilla head. Perfume, floral hop aroma....yeast. Fruity, mild coffee, resin flavor. Unexpected....has a saison quality to it. Very tasty.

Was a little disappointed, had high hopes b/c i love black ipa, but this wasnt that dark, big white head, but missing the hops and anything too crazy. Not a big fan but drinkable.
