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.

I wonder if I am tiring of this style already? This was a bit simple and a bit divided for me. Appearance is deep reddish brown with some light coming through, a nice creamy head, good lacing. Aroma is citrus and pine hops, pretty standard IPA profile nothing surprising. Hint of roast as it warms. Taste is first IPA citrus/ pine then a small amount of shallow roast. Palate is thin IPA like. Overall this is solid but not surprising or unexpected. THe roast and IPA seem separate and both seem really standard, when you are tasting hops it tastes like every other IPA when you are tasting roast it is super thin and not subtle at all.

Pours deep clear copper with a strong ivory colored head. Aroma is biscuity malt, grapefruit, some earthy notes. Taste is slightly toasted biscuits and grapefruit with noticeable alcohol presence. Body is medium, silky, soft carbonation, long bitter grapefruit ethanol finish. Overall, a reasonable example of the style but nothing crazy.

Oakes (13860) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 17, 2012
Kind of a murky chestnut brown with a thin bubbly head. The aroma is very toasty and earthy, both from malt and hops. Toasty palate with earthy hops, a dull bitterness and unfortunately not much brightness. Gets chewy towards the finish, possibly with some alcohol. Just needed something for me to latch onto.

This poured with an overwhelmingly thick head, and the color is a dark amber. Good hoppiness to the smell of the beer, though I get more of a mix of maltiness and hops in the taste. Slightly harsh up front, but an easy finish to the brew.

It poured a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma was of citrus, roasted malts and some pine. The taste was of hops and roasted maltiness. A very good Black IPA.

Bottle. Pours black with a medium-sized light tan head. Aroma is roasted malt, caramel, resinous, citrusy hops. Flavor leans toward the malt; hops are less pronounced than in the nose. Medium mouthfeel.

22 Looks brownish black. Smells mostly hoppy with a hint of dark malts. Tastes pretty good. Balanced for a American Black but not amazing

S. Philly Taproom. Nearly black with a small ring of tan head. I appreciate that the floral hops overpower the nose but it’s really hard to pick up much of any malt. Taste is a bit unbalanced, lacking the sweet backgone.

nuplastikk (5252) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 19, 2009
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.
