Keg at The University Club, Oxford. Dark brown with cream head. Straight in to heavily bittering hops, drying but with a tropical fruit and citric edge. The chocolate and black malts balance out the beer nicely. Full on the palate, rich and a tad jarring but a very decent beer altogether.

Keg at the Lovibonds tap takeover Brewdog Camden. Hazrd chestnut brown coloured pour with a lasting thin cream coloured head. Aroma is nutty malts, light roast, toast, pine resin hop. Flavour is composed of burnt toast, pinch of caramel. Lemon and piney hop, toast in the finish. Palate is semi sweet, medium body, little nice sticky resin, highish carbonation. Good black IPA.

Brewdog Sheps Bush. Keg. Clear deep amber beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is minerally crisp and semi dry. Thin and very mild dark malts, the colour of the beer is a giveaway! Whisper of coffee and dry malt cream. Nice piney hops with lesser citrus and a touch of red berry fruits. Light crisp finish. Dark chocolate malt linger. Not bad.

Bammers54 (90) - Camberely, Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2014
Keg from BrewDog Shepherds Bush, given the aggressive hoppiness of the brew, this is a very accessible IPA, quiet a taste bomb, lots of complexity on the palette. I really enjoyed this beer, recommended for hop heads

Keg Half Pint at White Horse American Beer Festival 2012, Parsons Green, London in July 2012 - Black in colour. Hoppy; piney resinous hops. Malty; burnt/roasty malts, caramel, some chocolate, hint of coffee. Fruity; grapefruit citrus. Bitter hoppy burnt/roast malty throughout. Overwhelming burnt taste; rather disappointing.

maneliquor (3479) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 6, 2014
Tap at BD Shepherds Bush. Nothing out of the ordinary. Very woody and pine driven with a hint of bubblegum. Decent stuff

teorn88 (4702) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 2, 2014
Keg at BD Shep Bush. It pours brown with amber edges. Medium beige head that sticks around for a while. Aroma is spot on with woody notes along citrus, lime, pine needles, roasted malts. Taste is similarly balanced between roasted notes and hops. More wood, roasted malts, grassy piney hops and long bitter finish. Medium bodied with lively carbonation. A textbook example of the style. Good.
