marcus (7473) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 11, 2012
Bottle from bhensonb. Pours dark brown with a huge beige head and a toffee aroma. There is a brown ale flavor with lots of treacle and a citrus finish. Complex and tasty.

Ibrew2or3 (7423) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 1, 2012
12oz bottle w/o a very imaginative name pours up brown – copper – amber, brownish with tiny floaties and thin tan head. The aroma is big and bold even while still pretty cold and delivers chewy pine and citrus hop goodness mixing with a bit of spicy hops, earthiness and faint roasted malts. The flavor, oh yeah, I’m liking this. It unloads a great mix of pine hops and somewhat malt sweetened grapefruit and tangelo citrus hops. The hops have a modest level of hops flavor but formidable hop bitterness. This is chewy yummy and bold and maintains a nice hop flavor into the finish. Lovely.

phaleslu (7419) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 1, 2012
12 oz. bottle shared by Aubrey Joe. Thanks again, Joe! Pours a brown-hued copper with a small off-white head. Aroma of leafy hops, caramel malts, mint, tobacco, grapefruit, and brown sugar. Flavor of mint, grapefruit, tobacco, wood, caramel malts, and tea leaves. Medium-bodied, with a cool, leafy mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Pretty good black IPA but didn’t blow me away.

Ughsmash (7354) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 10, 2012
Bottled. Poured a healthy shade of deeper brown with a short khaki head. The aroma picked up dank pine and perfumey hoppage over caramel and toasted chocolate malts.. I loved the fresh, vibrant hop presence, and the malts worked OK. The flavor found sweeter chocolate, iced tea, and roasty black patent notes at the core, with fresh, green pine and perfumey bitterness around.. dank and bitter on the finish.. good stuff. Medium-bodied with just the right amount of carbo on the palate.. I wasn’t the biggest fan of the malts in here, but the hops were really delicious and made up for it.

"As well balanced as possible for being much more of a hop monster than I thought. The malts are in the background a little, mainly Light roast, caramel, and molasses. The hops are abundantly grapefruit and pretty bitter on the back end. Nice brew."

12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear reddish brown color, medium to large beige head with quite a bit of sediment floating throughout. The aroma has some roasted caramel malt and ample amounts of fresh hops that make me want to take that first drink. The flavor does show a nice balance between the roasted malt and the resiny and light citrus hops. Moderate bitterness to the finish. The roasted notes come out a bit more as it warms. Medium bodied. Another solid black IPA from the producers of another favorite black ipa of mine.

swoopjones (6864) - Buffalo, New York, USA - APR 13, 2012
bottle, best black IPA yet...& i am not a real big fan of the type. great sticky, resiny piney aroma. Notes of roasted malts, medicinal , light eucalyptus. Great hop flavor, all about the hops here. Malts & roast add a touch of flavor & balance. Resiny bitterness, really good
