Huge citrus on a black beer. A lot of orange and lime. Flavor is thin and medium bitter. Not sweet at all. Really nice hop roast.

The aroma is a bit hops and some malts, bread, chocolate and spruce. Pours a black with a slight red hint with a big creamy head and excellent lacing. The taste is bitter and a slight umami. The body is medium, the texture creamy, the carbonation a touch flat and the finish abrupt. Overall I felt it came up lacking, not enough hops and a little too much of the malts, the combination wasn’t good.

Foxbush (1215) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 13, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 14, 2014 22 oz bottle The black IPAs are new style that i have grown to like. This is a good one. The ale pours with a large tan head and nice lacing. The color is brown to black that you see light clearly through the glass. The aroma is mixture of some coffee and citrus. the medium body ale has average carbonation. The taste of roasted malts and coffee greet you with every sip. A bitter edge adds texture and lenght to the finish. This is a very drinkable black IPA.

12. oz bottle. Pours with a thick brownish head that does last. Looks dark brown in appearance, dark but not opaque. Aroma of roasted grains. A little chocolate. Some hop aroma. Tastes sweet up front. Bitterness in the end. It was decent

Pours dark brown with a huge, lacy tan head. Grapefruit hops and roasty malts in the aroma. Burnt dark malts on the palate along with sharp citrus hops. Lingering bitterness on the finish. I’m not a fan of this style but if you are this is a good one.

CopterScott (81) - Kansas, USA - DEC 21, 2013
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.

750ml bottle. Pours brown with a pale beige head that’s mostly lasting which leaves excellent lacing. Aroma is pine, citrus, fabulously fresh, fragrantly floral. Really great aroma! Lightly sweet, light to medium bitter taste, and dark malts. Medium body, average carbonation, thin to oily texture and a bitter finish. Aroma blows me away! Worth revisiting.
