Very dark brown to black color, light brown head. Fresh, hoppy, malty, bitter taste. Roasted aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel, medium high bitterness. Roasted scent.

GT2 (7875) - Carlsbad, California, USA - DEC 29, 2013
Tap at Rapp. Pours a clear deep red with nice whiter foam. Nose is herbal, tar, pine, hazelnut coffee, dense. Taste is hazelnut, pine, walnut, brazil nut. More of a well hopped hazelnut brown ale, though the pine needle content could make this pass for Black IPA. Impressed.

mcd410x (17) - Florida, USA - OCT 6, 2013
Draft at the brewery. Pours black with off-white head and lots of lacing. Aroma says IPA. Taste says coffee with a hoppy (happy?) finish. Really nice.

drowland (5958) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - JUL 14, 2013
7/10/13. On tap at the brewery. Black pour, maybe more of a deep brown, with a small khaki head. The aroma shows citrus, pine, and muted chocolate and roast. Pine and bitterness in the flavor with a cleaner roasted malt bitterness than the aroma led on.

Scopey (5511) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2013
Tap at Rapp. It pours very dark brown with a thick tan head. The nose is roasted malt, toast, pine, treacle, aniseed/liquorice and fresh citrus. The taste is roasted malt, coffee, pine, nice bitterness, cocoa, earth, pithy citrus and a touch of soap with a bitter finish. Medium+ body and moderate carbonation. Flavoursome, nice body and good depth of flavour. Another winner from Rapp.

rbrazell (1445) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 23, 2013
Draft at the brewery. Deep brown pour with a white head with lots of lacing. Roasted, coffee maltiness with bitter piney hops. Roast and coffee malts on the front of the tongue with a good dose of bitter pine and citrus hops on the back end. Pretty solid.

OmegaX (1156) - Florida, USA - JUN 23, 2013
Nice stuff. Aroma is big citrus and pine with some roasted and chocolate malts. Color is, uhhh, black. Flavor is big on hops with a tone of pine and citrus. The roasted malts are their but not overpowering. Light chocolate but more so on the roast. This is my kind of DIPA. Well balanced flavors and not just a garbled up mess of malt and hops.

Chipalsa (1306) - Florida, USA - JUN 23, 2013
Another job well done here. It’s very well balanced with dry hops and dark, roasted malt. The texture was nice too, and made this brew all the more enjoyable.
