"Nice breakfast beer, as this was a spot in mix of orange and grapefruit hops, coffee and a touch of chocolate. No heat. Sessionable yet complex and very tasty."

RedSox2004 (1314) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Dark brown, almost opaque, with ruby highlights, a two-finger foamy tan head and very nice lace. Rich aromas of cocoa powder, roasted malt, earth and a touch of citrus. Taste is similar, with the malt and chocolate sweetness offset by pleasant pine and citrus hop bitterness. The bitterness takes over and lingers through the finish. Medium body, lively carbonation, creamy smooth mouthfeel and a crisp finish.

Oakes (12777) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 17, 2014
Pretty dark brown with a big rocky, smells floral, citrusy, a little roasty, really rich toasty dark malts, aggressive hop bitterness, full body. A very assertive character, big example, I really like it.

BrewGoblin (448) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - MAY 21, 2014
The time between midnight and the next sunrise eh? Wonderfully, this beer is perfect anytime and was enjoyed on a sunny midday with a great friend. Dark, almost black with a thick tan head. A good meaty, mid carbonated body with a bit of oiliness. Sort of tastes like a hopped up, sweeter and less dry Guinness, that’s a good thing. Bitter coffee and pine resin flavours catapult this one into 4/5 range.

nimbleprop (5094) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 9, 2014
4oz pour at Jack Rose DC. Pours an oddly murky brown with some bright, cream colored head. Very muddy appearance. Nose has some watermelon, leafy hop, pickled watermelon rind, vinous, lemon, plenty of C hops, a hint of bread crust. Flavor has some malty sweetness, a hint of caramel, orange peel, white grape, pine, soap, lemon. Sticky finish.

radagast83 (4945) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - MAY 8, 2014
Draft at Jack Rose. Poured a dark brown color with a tan. Aroma was pleasant citrus notes - grapefruit character, nice roasted notes. Nice citrus character, earthy notes, malt, coffee. Nice and refreshing - nice balance here, perhaps a bit heavy on the hop, something that is often missing in these Black IPAs.

Draft. Medium beige head atop dark brown body. Aroma is medium sweet, roast, some coffee, grapefruit/earthy. Taste is medium sweet, roast, grapefruit, some earthy, coffee. Light-medium body, fairly smooth, thought of it as a Black APA.
