12 ounce bottle. Pours a dark reddish-black with a two inch tan head that lasts. Taste is of roasted malt, hops, pine, citrus, fruit and resin. Similar aroma. Has a full body with a slight bitter and dry finish. Easy to drink and enjoyable.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark caramel color with thick creamy head with great retention. Big aromas of pine/citrus, slight pineapple, chocolate and coffee. Flavors of pine and chocolate upfront, slight earthy/herbal hops and a slight blend of caramel. More on the hop side but has a big malt backbone. Medium to high sweetness with a medium bitterness. On the sweet side all around but the hops poke their heads above it all to make a strong presence. One of the more enjoyable beers Iíve had in a while.

Incredible black ipa. I received this beer via a beer trade and they guy stated it was one of his staples. Very different from any other black ipa I ever had. Malty and well balanced. Very tasty.

Pours dark and black with a small off white head. Nose is wood and pine needles, some hay, light chocolate, coffee and berries. The taste is sweet at first but then accompanied but excellent bitterness. The mouthfeel is crisp and sticky, the body is light and the finish is long.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours deep brown with a thick beige head thatís frothy and long lasting with great lacing. Aroma is a great mix of roast and IPA, running the gamut from chocolate and caramel malts to tropical fruity hops. Taste is malt and alcohol up front, giving way to resiny hops that sustain some bitterness, eventually letting some roastiness through in the end with a faint bready malt aftertaste. Palate is smooth and thick, creamy with a dry finish. More hops than roast here, but overall it works out well. Alcohol is evident but not out of place. Not bad at all!

Pours a dark brownish-black with a fairly thick head. Strong scent of pine in the aroma. Flavor is a nice combination of citrus and pine with some sweetness in the background and finish. This is a very good IPA.

Clear, mahogany brown. Light tan head. Light molasses, some floral aromas, light pine. Some alcohol on the nose. Fairly bitter, rounded out by a moderate sweetness. Fairly long, acidic finish. Medium body, some carbonation. Good.

On draft at the brewery. Pours a murky dark golden-brown with off-white lacing. Aroma of pine hops and dark malt. Taste starts with a hoppy bitter bite then gets kind of watery, with some pine and sugar. Lingering light bitter pine notes. Eh, thereís not much going on here.

Black pour with a big, foamy, white head. Thereís lots of floral and citrusy hops with a touch of pine. The roasted malts add a bit of chocolate and roast but without the usual chalkiness that I donít like in most black IPAís. The body is creamy, medium-full with soft carbonation.
