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!

Bacterial (1552) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - APR 23, 2013
Another well crafted by Jason at Steel Toe. Big pine on the nose. Dark brown pour with an off-white head. Some lacing here. Malt quickly gives way to pine hops and some nice bitterness on the finish. Excellent!

TheHOFF43 (1751) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - APR 22, 2013
Bottle. Pours a dark black with good head. Aroma is piney hops, roasted malts with a matching flavor. Awesome beer for the price.

April 20, 2013 - bottle shared by Brandon. Brown pour with nice white head that faded quickly and lacing. Aroma was piney hops and roasted malt. Taste was consistent with aroma and was nicely balanced.

badgerben (4400) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - APR 20, 2013
Dark brown color with a very thin head. Perfume and pine-laden aroma. Very piney flavor. Some bergamot and roasted barley. Moderate to strong bitterness. Dry finish. Full body.

DalzAle (1984) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - APR 19, 2013
Bottle. Dark black pour, lasting lacing and an aroma of spruce and roasty malt. Flavor is also more roasty dark malt, roasty herbal spruce and finished very earthy/peaty. $5 a bomber? Totally worth it.

Atom (1342) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 17, 2013
Bomber pours a dark brown/black with a large khaki head. Aroma is very hoppy pine citrus, with roasted and chocolate malts. Taste is a solid hop bitterness from start to finish with roasted chocolate malts underneath. Nice!

Had on tap at steel toe. Smell is hoppy with a hint of roasted malts. Flavor is predominitely hops, wouldn’t mind a bit more of the maltiness/bitterness from the roasted malts coming through on this one. One of my favorites from Steel Toe so far, would drink again.

BVery (6208) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - APR 17, 2013
Tap at Steel Toe. Dark murky amber pour with a frothy light beige head. Big roasted malts and citrus hops on the aroma. Full palate. Bold hops in the taste but still a pretty easy drinker. Great full-flavored brew.
