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.

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

r464 (2034) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 19, 2013
Very dark ruby-brown with a foamy tan head. Roasty malt with an earthiness and a bit of a hoppy finish. Rather full, toasty, dark.

Not the best black ipa. The pour on this was not great, it left a look of undesirable beer to drink. The taste was basic, not what I expect from a classic black ipa

ozarkspops (368) - - MAR 23, 2013
Black pour with ruby edges. Really thick khaki head. Tons of lacing. Aroma is fairly balanced. Mild roastiness and malt sweetness with some citrus, floral, and earthy hops. Taste is very similar. I pick up a little chocolate roastiness. A hint if coffee. Hops are similar to aroma. Mostly citrus, some floral and earthy notes. ---Rated via iPhone

Black pour from bomber from blackwells. Frothy and very foamy head. Carbonation and licorice aroma. Chocolate and stale type taste. It isnít bad but having a hard time getting into it
