22 ounce bottle. Pours an unclear brown with a two inch tan head. Taste is of hops, pine, citrus, grapefruit, caramel, chocolate and malt. Similar aroma. Has a decent, slightly oily body. The finish is rather dry and a bit bitter. Easy to drink and rather enjoyable. Not bad.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours dark brown with a thin tan head. The aroma is burnt caramel, breast, some hints of roast and coffee. The taste is coffee, roast, and some bitter hops. Not really hoppy enough for a black IPA. This one plays more like an American stout. Itís not bad.

Very nice! Aroma is hope, malt, citrus, sweet, Carmel. Pours a dark brown with thick creamy tan head. Nice carbonation. Taste is piny, citrus with malty leaves a good bitterness in the mouth. Overall a fantastic brew.

Pint @ Pub at Piperís Creek, $5.00. When I order a beer at bar, no matter how divey, I never expect it to look like muddy pond water. Imagine my surprise when thatís exactly what this brew looked like. Smelled hoppy enough but the body was thin and unsatisfying (something I find often with Rogueís new Risk Malt). Iím not angry, just unimpressed.

Growler. So darky w/ more roasted chocolate malt than expected (this really lost the IPA spirit). Hoppy, yeah, but the body was heavy.
