Dark brown with and enormous chunky off-white head that persists. malty aroma with some hopes. Flavor is roasted malt with some floral and pine hops. Starts out very fizzy but calms down to medium carbonation.

On-Tap @ Bailey’s Taproom poured into Shaker glass. Pours a very deep, dark reddish-brown and edging that glows with a creamy tan colored head that lasts for sometime and remains a layer atop the glass. The aroma has sweet chocolate, roasted malts and some fruity hops, although faint. The flavor has much of the same although more sweetness and has a nice soft bitter finish. Its a medium bodied beer that is plenty carbonated and has a slightly dry finish. I found it to be a more balanced "Black IPA" than most others I have tried. Pretty good. It has a soft smokiness that becomes present as the beer the warms up.

BelvidereIPA (140) - Belvidere, Illinois, USA - JUL 6, 2011
Pours a dark brown with tan head. Looks too hazy for a "Black" IPA. Smells very distinctly of citrus and pine as advertised in the commercial description. Tastes a little too flat, a little too watered down to compete with other Black IPA. Good, not great.

very dark appearance with a nice head. Good taste of an IPA with a very nice malty finish to balance it out. Probably the best black IPA i’ve had.

Never had a black IPA before and not much a fan of dark beers so I didn’t really trust this going in. It’s not bad at all though. Smells legit, citrusy and sweeter than average for an IPA. Pour is AWESOME, gorgeous deep brown color with a huge bulbous tan head and insane lacing on the glass. Mouth is thick-ish and really nice. Flavor is good not great, definitely leaves something to be desired, it tastes like it’s good quality but all the complexities are extremely subdued and overwhelmed by the hops. An interesting and surprising brew with awesome intangibles, but lacking a bit where it counts, especially considering the price tag.

someviking (132) - old bridge, New Jersey, USA - FEB 12, 2011
poured a cloudy dark ruby brown color with an uncontrollable head. musty citrus hop aroma. generous amount of carbonation. slightly sweet and piney hop flavors. malts not showing through that much. reminds me of what a belgian beer rendition of this beer style would be. tastes a little bit watered down and sour. not a bad beer for the style but not one of my favorites.

From a bottle. Excellent dark IPA. Strong hops flavor, with a gentle dark roasty malt finish.

night black with a lovely head. smell is intense and intriguing... very citrus hoppy with a tiny little bit of the roast malt coming through... the balance almost creates a fruity aroma (not yeast fruity...) taste is citrus/pine hoppy up front then finishes with a pretty bitter dark malt taste.
