Bottle. Pours all but black with a huge tan head. Aroma of hops. Flavor is hoppy with some fruit flavors and a sweet bitterness. Good mouthfeel. Good beer.

Bottle: Pours a dark brown with a nice tan head. The aroma is more subdued than I expected. I get roasted notes and a lighter hop aroma. The taste is roasty with coffee and some pine hops. This is actually pretty balanced. The mouthfeel is light to medium. Overall an okay beer.

ehhh.............................................. IPA and Dog, I was sold. But, the experience...more like the smush and push of BIPAs; you know, it’ll do.

it pours out like a thin stout that was dark in color and it has an off white thin head. it has slight lacing as it goes down the glass. it has moderate carbonation and has a great hoppy, piney, malty flavour. i can smell citrus and wet moss along with wood. it kind of has a "tobaco’y" , earthy taste when it finishes. pretty good beer.

22 oz. from Uptown. Pours black with a tan head. Smells hoppy like an IPA. A little too much roasted flavor for a black IPA. Not my favorite but I would never dump it out. :-)

Served from bottle into a Stone nonic. Pours a dark amber with a three finger off white head that is very frothy but subsided to one finger very slowly. Maintained decent lacing throughout. The aroma was comprised of sweet hops and malt. The flavor was of dark malt and hops. It had a medium feel on the palate with medium carbonation. Overall this was a very nice IPA. The head retention was epic on this one. Just glad I was able to try this one. The flavors and aromas were definitely on par for this style and it was one of the top black IPA’s I’ve tried to date.

(Bottle) The initial taste is actually pretty good but there’s a very bitter piney citrus aftermath that is totally at odds with it. Very unbalanced and a poorly-constructed black IPA attempt although not without some merrit.

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.
