Very good Black IPA with a great balance of roasted oats and toasted carmal malts and sweet fresh grapefruit and bitter hops.

reebtogi (4141) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 5, 2013
650ml bottle pours black in color with a 2 finger white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is pine and citrus with some caramel and light roasted grains. Taste is a dark fruity and malty sweetness with a roasted grain with citrus and pine hop bitterness. Well balanced and quite tasty. Medium bodied with some nice carbonation leaving a pleasant sensation on the palate. Well done brew for the style and highly recommended.

Bomber. Nice IPA taste and great appearance but I was hoping for a black IPA that had a touch more fruitiness like cranberry. It's above average but not outstanding. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

651 ml. bottle. Pours a thick, very well retained ivory head, with extensive lacing, over a clear brown (SRM 25) body.....nose is pine, grapefruit, coffee, chocolate.....taste is pine, chocolate, coffee, grapefruit, leading to a moderate, bitter hop finish.....mouth feel medium, minimally astringent, slightly acid, with tingling carbonation. This is a nicely balanced Black IPA, with all of the ingredients adding their bit. The result is a roasty, hoppy, happy combination of aromas and flavors. BJCP 8/3/15/5/7

A - Pours a very dark hazy brown. A thick frothy 2 finger light-tan head that refuses to sink. The color is weak but it gets points for the solid head. S - Pine resin, citrus, roasted barley, old leftover coffee grinds, also a strange arm-pit body odor that Iím not loving. T - A mix tape of heavy evergreen and citrus. The bitterness is great at first but turns to a chalky aspirin flavor toward the end. A roasted smokey flavor from the black malt. Has a dry mineral aftertaste. M - Creamy and medium to full bodied. Moderate carbonation. This is a love hate kinda beer. There are great things and not so great thing about it. The good: Big on hops. The bad: Chalky sour aspirin, body odor smell. I donít know if this is infected or what. Itís good but has flaws. I did a blind taste test with another "un-named" Black IPA and this one lost. Serving type: bottle 12-04-2010
