COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Legend had is Captín Krunkles is the most feared pirate on the high seas. No one has seen him, his ship, or the great beer his band of pirates drinks has lived to tell about it. Until now. Made with a bombardment of hops to defeat your tastebuds in battle and all the black malt you can stand before walking the plank, this Black I.P.A. will make it worth going down with the ship.

Picked this up while on vacation in Orlando at Knightly Spirits. Maybe my expectations were too high being a big fan of Stones Sublimely and Southern Tiers Iniquity black IPAs, but I expected more from this beer. Thought the hop profile was moderate at best.

6/26/2010. From bottle. Black with a tan head. Hoppy aromas with dark malt, citrus, tropical fruit. Bitter flavors with good balance all the way.

Reviewed 9-13-10. A couple of BA traders have asked me about this beer when I told them I could get Terrapin. I bought one for someone, and then picked one up for myself to see what all the Hooplah was about: Ap: Pours black as night, with a 1/2 inch head that left instantly, and carbonation to spare. Ar: Not really strong in the aroma department, but what Iím getting reminds me of Coca-Cola - slightly bitter, with a hop sizzle. T: Not at all vicious, actually very malty, and much smoother than I expected. P: Frothy lacing and very creamy in texture. Very soothing. O: Nothing really special about this one, but the beer itself is not too pretentious. Also, I REALLY love the bottle art!

Bottle, probably sat on this one too long. But it has aged well. Choclatety flavor, roasty, hops have diminished. Very flavorful, great mouthfeel, oily. Real nice.!

Maltajo (329) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 24, 2012
Bomber bottle from Dchmela, ( thanks Dave ). Nice black pour with a fine tan head. Roasted barly goodness with a nice balance of hops with a little wheat. Every sip was a pleasure.

These beers usually smell better than they taste, in my opinion, and this one was no exception. Rich chocolatey and citrusy nose comes with a palate that is just slightly too bitter and a flavor profile that clashes more than Iíd like. Still, pretty darn good and another impressive side project.

AdamJackson (2343) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 15, 2012
Acquired in a trade. Enjoyed in a Hill Farmstead Glass.

A - Gorgeous hazy wheat appearance with a golden light appearance. No head whatsoever.

S - Gigantic Bavarian wheat scent. Fresh wheat and light apricot scent. Very mellow hop scent. Loads of pineapple and lemon zest. Very nice and harmonious. Great balance really.

T - Yeah. Hard to tell a big difference between the hops and the wheat. Itís basically 50/50 with a big dry german yeast. Pretty well balanced but a very dry wheat taste on the finish.

M - 100% carbonation. Very borderline medium / light body. Big wheat and lemony finish.

O - Nice beer. Itís not a great wheat IPA but itís decent.. 81/100.

rudolf (2340) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JUL 15, 2011
Very deep brown, a little ruby light shines through. Nose is roast, caramel & piney hop. Flavor is caramel, nice roast, big pine character with some tropical hop notes. Finish is bittersweet chocolate & pine with lingering caramel. I recognize that this bottle isnít the freshest in the world but I prefer it to fresh samples of Captín Krunkles that I had.
