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.

Bottle received via trade with ditmier. Pours clear dark brown with an average, creamy, off-white head, mostly lasting with good lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (cookie, caramel, toasted grain), heavy hops (flowers, perfume, pine), average yeast (sweat, earth) with notes of alcohol, grape, apple, and pear. Medium bodied, sticky and mineral texture, lively carbonation, and a bitter finish. Average duration, light sweetness, heavy acidity and bitterness.

UPDATED: MAR 20, 2009 Bottle. Cola brown body, tan head. Peppery herbal hop nose, light bread crust, light cheese. First taste is yeast-heavy acidic cheesecloth and stenchy rotting vegetables. Down the drain you go.

Incredible beer. This was such a complex and different brew. Poured pitch black with a nice tan head, You could smell massive hops instantly. The flavor was hard to comprehend. This was the first of this style of "black IPA’s" I ever had.I kept thinking i was going to get a stout but nope, tasted very hoppy but there definately was a big malt presence as well. Very well done.

Bottle. Pours a medium coffee brown with a small tan head. Nose is milky, a little funky. Flavors off at first but grow on you a bit. Nice malty backbone, hops poke through a little with some mild spiced grapefruit. Glad I sampled but nothing outstanding.

On tap @ TFD. Fragrant citrusy hop. Smooth mouthfeel. Dark, dark ruby color. Slight chocolate-like backbone. Good bitter bite. The beer that looks like a porter, but tastes like an IPA, beautiful!

boFNjackson (4200) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 19, 2009
Tap @ Belmont Station... Poured deep, almost opaque, brown with an off-white head. Hops on the nose with a pleasant, toasted roundness. Pretty hoppy up front. Cracker and biscuit flavors in the finish. Straight up IPA that poured like porter.

22oz bomber. Pours a deep brown/stained glass red color. Big, thick, foamy head. Sweet dark malt and syrupy hop aroma. The taste is odd, not quite what I had hoped for in the style. Harsh soapy hops with a sugary sweet malt background. A little disappointing, but the brown sugary sweetness kind of saves it. Unique at best.
