3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 oz. bottle. Pours a dark brown almost black color with a tight foamy soapy khaki head that slowly fades way to a thin foamy film. Aroma has solid bitter hops of pine/spruce with big roasted malt burnt toffee and hidden coffee. Taste has more big bitterness of pine spruce some hidden citrus and roasted malt faded coffee and brunt toffee/caramel. Palate is medium smooth and dry with a coating feel in the finish. Really nice! This needs to be a regular, in their line-up!

Bomber. Pour is very dark brown, thin mocha head. Aroma is hoppy pine and dark roasted malt, some sweetness. Taste is big pine and lemon hops, dark roasted, but not black IPA levels, caramel malt, toffee, earthiness.

22oz bottle from KHOFF, pours a nice deep dark brown, with first little head, then second glass had a large foamy offwhite head, plenty of lacing hanging on the glass. nose is slightly hoppy with a touch of piney resin. mostly a roasted flavor and a bit bubbly on the tongue.. decent beer I’d say.

5/4/13. 22oz bomber thanks to CLe to the var, bitches! Darl brown pour with a nice khaki tan head. Nice hop aroma, pine as aforementioned, but also with a distinct fruitiness touching on Fruity Pebbles. Big hop flavor, a good bitterness as well, with big doses of pine, fruitiness, citrus, and a touch of roasted malts. Tasty!

Aroma is a nice pine and chocolate scent. Taste is hop forward pine, citrus, grapefruit, then there is some great malt chocolate, caramel, super balanced malt. Very good black ipa. I love steel toe!!

Bomber thanks to Caleb. Pours a pure black color with a large beige head. A sweet nose of pine and light chocolates. The flavor leans toward the darker porter side with roast, dry chocolate and ash, caramel, light bitter pine and citrus. Very flavorful.

Great brew. Nice balance between malt and hops. Both are predominant flavors to this beer. Best steel toe so far.

God this is awesome. Just a solidly balanced beer. Nice black IPA! Not many are great. This hits malt, hops, aromatics and amazing taste!
