COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.

Dark with light tan head. Aroma is sweet. Taste is not for me. Perfumy ipa. I will not be buying again.

650ml brown bottle. Medium brown colour with some red shades. Medium sized tan head. Hoppy nose, big citrus. Light roasty taste, dark chocolate, tons of citrus hops. Light roasty finish, lingering citrus and pine, ok bitterness. Medium body, decent zippy carbonation. Quite an easy drinking black IPA, could be just a touch bolder, but still good.

Almost black pour. Big tan head. Plenty of lacing. Hoppy aroma with a nice maltiness. Hoppy flavor with the same malty back. Nice beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Don't usually like this style, but this was a very nice beer. Rated this beer using a different program and unfortunately I'm not able to transfer my comments here.

22oz bottle from Party Town. Shared with friends. WTF? My black IPA has a brettanomyces infection. Has a citrusy, grapefruity nose. Flavor is lightly tart. Soft, tingly carbonation. More dry finish. Thankfully, the infection does not ruin the beer. Itís kind of fascinating, really, brett black IPA... Just totally unexpected. Mostly clear, dark red / brown color. Thin khaki head, good bits of lace. Some light roast malt, hint of coffee. Earthy hop. A lot of citrus character, that I think is probably from the brett. Moderate tart taste, light bitter, minimal sweet. Really interesting beer. Itís infected, but not in a bad way. Tastes like itís intentionally supposed to be a brett black IPA, or black saison or something. Pretty refreshing.. black farmhouse ale.

Very good Black IPA with a great balance of roasted oats and toasted carmal malts and sweet fresh grapefruit and bitter hops. BEautiful nearly opaque black pour with a finger of beige head, The nose has roasted and oat malts as well as sweet citrus and grapefruits. Good balance with a nice bitter finish.
