Black brown pour into a snifter. Small mocha head. Smell is citrus, juicy hops, roasted malts. Taste follows, tropical fruits, roast, bit of bakers chocolate bitterness. One of the best black IPAs I have had. Solid.

burg326 (3243) - Florida, USA - JAN 15, 2014
Poured a black color with aromas of roast, citrus and pine. Flavors were light roast and earth followed by citrus, hops and pine. One of the better black ipas out there.

paintedmaple (330) - Fenton, Michigan, USA - JAN 7, 2014
Silky almost black pour with bright fresh hop flavor over roasted coffee beans this also has a complex fruitiness (Citra) that really works well with the dark flavors. Nice.

DuffMan (6162) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 29, 2013
Bottle, from Sammy. Very dark brown, nearly black. Papaya fruit hop character, ripe melon, very sweet, with underlying silky roast. Big piney bitterness. Not bad.

deyholla (5972) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - DEC 28, 2013
Bottle. Pours black with a light brown head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has an interesting combination of citrus, light pine, dark grains and light roasted malts. Flavor starts with smooth roasted malts and a hint of chocolate and has bitter citrus in the finish.

phaleslu (5875) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 8, 2013
12 oz. bottle shared by b3shine- thanks, Beau! Pours a deep brown color with a small beige head. Aroma of toasted and chocolaty malts, nuts, tobacco, ash, and piney hops. The flavor is more heavily malty and toasty, and for some reason that works. Light-medium bodied, with a dry, toasty mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. I expected the Citra to be more pronounced here, but I really enjoyed the beer nonetheless. Really dig what I’ve had from this brewery so far.

jkwood04 (3408) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 8, 2013
12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours black with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of citrusy hops, roasted and dark malts, some pale malts, and light dough. Flavor the same with a good amount of hops. Average texture. An interesting beer, but I think the dark malts cover up the great flavor of these citrusy hops.

Sammy (8094) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 7, 2013
Fresh bottle from Champane’s Cellars. Very black and thick body. Smoke and ashtray aroma - unfortunately that was also the taste and therefore not so drinkable.

Tmoney99 (10085) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 6, 2013
Bottle shared by b3shine. Poured clear dark brown with an average frothy tan head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted malt, chocolate, citrus hop aroma. Medium to abundant body with a dry slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy dark bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a good complex beer.
