Unusually inviting aroma of candied orange and a hint of coffee. Taste is subtle but dark chocolate, with a bit of orange peel popping up a second or so in. The malt integration is much better than most bipas, and the beer is pleasingly dry.

Veeks (62) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 4, 2014
Malty great blend of hops - smell of burnt wood-nice blend had at the good life in Massapequa - the cost of $16 was a downer but the taste was really nice

[Bottle (500ml) shared with HogTownHarry, jercraigs & mabel -- c/o j&m] Pours a very dark brown, almost black, with an average size frothy light-brown head. Aroma of toasted malt, light leafy hops and some coffee. Nice flavour of toasted malt, some coffee,a good amount of leafy hops and a medium bitter finish. medium bodied. Quite good.

jercraigs (9154) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 30, 2014
2014-10-09. Black body with a small creamy brown head. 3++ Aroma of celery and green leafy hops. Flavour is a pleasant melange of green hops and roast malt, with light caramel touches. Smooth average plus bodied palate, soft carbonation. Cellared longer than might have been wise but it is quite enjoyable. Bottle from forgotten bottleshop, NYC

zizzybalubba (1735) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - OCT 28, 2014
500 mL bottle from Total Wine, Virginia Beach, VA (bottled October 7, 2014). Dark brown, almost black, pour with a frothy khaki head. Aroma of pineapple, tangerine, pine, and wet grass. Taste is a perfect balance of roasted malt and hops featuring coffee and chocolate flavors that are in harmony with citrus and pine. An outstanding black IPA.

bellco33 (534) - Willington, Connecticut, USA - OCT 16, 2014
On tap at the Reservoir in Waterbury: Pours black with a thin tan head. Aroma is roasted malts, cocoa, resin, and citrus. Taste is unreal. Dark and roasted like a porter, but the pine and citrus hops are still the stars of the show. Orange zest and resin are very much present after the initial wave of roasted malts. Full body, well balanced, slightly sticky mouthfeel, this might be my favorite black IPA.

HogTownHarry (6372) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - OCT 9, 2014
September 9, 2014 - shared by J&K with me and blankboy. 500ml bottle. Inky black pour, smallish lasting frothy tan head. Lovely roast and herbal bitter aroma taste follows, but a little stale and milky. Average body, light carbonation, medium bitter finish - I am not a huge fan of the style, but this is pretty solid - and past its best before date too!

SpongeRuiner (1044) - Michigan, USA - OCT 2, 2014
Picked up a bottle while in Chicago. Pours a straight solid smooth black with a light brown head that is thick. A citrus hopped aroma with a roasty background. A nice roasty hop flavor upfront with a very nice mouthfeel. A carbonated tongue. A big smokiness comes in about halfway through that really mixes it up well. Very drinkable. Ends with a dry smoky finish. Pretty damn good stuff considering not particularly my go to style. This brewery continues to impress me.

crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - SEP 21, 2014
A black body with a tan head that faded to a thin coating, but had nice lace. Aroma had a strong mix of hops. A blend of citrus and pine. Roasted malts were very good. Flavor seemed to blend the roasted flavors from the malts really complemented the hop flavor. Grapefruit hops were not over powering. Finish was slightly dry Nice mouth feel.
