Probably the best tasting black ipa Iíve ever had. Strong hoppy smell, strong grapefriuty taste. Definitely tell its dry hopped. Delicious!

12 oz bottle. Pours a nut brown color. Aroma is wonderfully hoppy with crisp citrus notes. Flavor is a great balance of roast and hops. Finishes smooth and clean. Mmmm Mmmm good

An interesting take on the dark IPA, one of my personal favorite beer styles. Poured a dark brown with a full light brown head. The mixture of citrus hops with the roast from the dark malts doesnít work very well. It certainly has a good bitterness and some astringency to it. Overall, a good beer, but there are definitely better black IPAs to choose from.

indigentone (10) - Colorado, USA - JUN 8, 2013
12oz bottle purchased somewhere in CO. Poured cloudy with a thick creamy head. Opaque redidh brown. Much more brown than black. Very light lacing. Aroma was strong grapefruit with light pine and a surprising dark fruit maltiness. The flavor was similar to the aroma with a bit sweetness followed by long lasting medium bitterness. Marvelous mouthfeel. Feels bigger than it is.

cocoapuph (10) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 27, 2012
Pours a root beer color with a lot or floaties throughout.. definitely smells of an ipa. A slight touch of pine and then grapefruit and orange peels. Taste comes through just a little bitter/hoppy but rounds out pretty nicely with more orange flavors than anything else. Mouth feel is chalky and yeasty. Was an OK beer but the cloudiness didnít do it for me.

Pours black, dark brown when held up to light. Hops aroma isnít strong, malt dominates the aroma. Tastes a lot lighter than it looks, but still robust in flavor. Lingering flavors redeem some of the previous "disappointments" in the beer and leave me impressed overall.

The hoppy aroma is not as pronounced as some other brews. But the true brown color of this massive brew is totally awesome. The brown taste shows through almost like you are tasting three brews, a brown, a stout and a black at once. Full bodied, with a thin texture happens to be fizzy on the tongue with a true IPA finish, yet also with a good deal of smoke. Recommended for just about everyone that likes strong IPAís.

Pours a dark brown color with frosty tan head. The immense hop taste mixed with natural roast flavor make this a brew for a hop head who loves massive flavor
