superspak (2562) - Michigan, USA - MAR 29, 2012
22 ounce bottle into signature pint glass, bottle 12/16/2011. Pours crystal clear dark reddish brown color with a nice 2 finger dense khaki head with very good retention that reduces to a thick cap that lasts. Some nice spotty lacing on the glass. Aromas of grapefruit, caramel, orange, toasted malt, biscuit, light chocolate, and herbal spiciness. Some good aromas here, but they are also very muted. Taste of big grapefruit, caramel, pine, roasted malt, biscuit, orange, light chocolate, and herbal spiciness. Good amount of bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, pine, roasted malt, caramel, and herbal spiciness for a good bit. Some decent flavor balance, but the hops are more prominent in the taste. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly creamy mouthfeel. Alcohol presence is invisible at 5.5%, no warming noticed at all. Overall this is a nice and enjoyable black IPA. Very smooth to drink; with a good amount of flavor and balance.

nuplastikk (4347) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 24, 2012
Draft at Dexters. Opaque black with a solid beige head. Oily resinous burnt coffee/toffee aroma. More enjoyable than the Farmhouse, a very drinkable BIPA. Steady semi-soapy hops. Clean for the style, medium to full bodied. Middle of the road, enjoyable enough. Well executed, but pretty tame.
