deyholla (5959) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - FEB 9, 2012
Bottle. Pours brown with a reddish hue, cola carbonation and an off white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a real nice pine and fresh cut grass note backed by light roasted malts. Flavor has a lighter pine note with more roasted malts and hints of bread and coffee,

1/4/12. 12oz bottle courtesy ratebeef! Hazy brown pour with a small tan head that sticks and laces plenty. Pungent, almost sour hoppy aroma with cattiness, lemon peel, weed, and more. Sweet entry with caramel and chocolate that gives way to pungent hoppiness, again with cattiness and citrus. Nice!

Glouglouburp (5929) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 4, 2012
In short: A not-so-malty and very hoppy-bitter dark ale with an innapropriate acrid/tart character. Overall just ok.
How: Bottle 12oz. Consumed approximately 3 months after the beer release
The look: Dark mahogany body topped by a long-lasting small beige head leaving lots of lacings on the glass
In long: Nose is very bright, an explosion of piney and grapefruity hops, so bright and hoppy that with my eyes closed Iím not sure I would have guessed this is a Black IPA. Taste proposes a somewhat low-profile maltiness, far from a thick full body, some cake malts with a nougat flavor and some caramel. Hops dominate this beer. Lots of pine, grapefruity and lemony hops, high alpha acid, razor sharp and very assertive bitterness. The aggressive carbonation adds an extra dose of acidity to the citric hops and it makes this beer overall a bit too acrid. Iím rating this collaboration beer between three fine American breweries today July 4th when the USA are celebrating over 200 years of independence(*).
does not include foreign oil

12-oz. Pours a murky ebony with a dense and creamy tan head. Big tangy sweet nose, lots of oily hop poking through a sweet malty presence. Blood oranges, orange pith, grapefruit. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Tangy blood oranges and lots of other bitingly citric qualities from the acidity of the hop oils are bouncing around, almost a little too much but in a pleasant and decadent way. Tangy sharp oily finish, hoppy grapefruit bitterness.

phaleslu (5867) - 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 didnít blow me away.

arminjewell (5715) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 2, 2012
Pour out of 12 oz bottle is murky brownish with thin off white head, aroma brought notes of big fruity orange, grapefruit and other citrus notes, touch of resinous and pine notes as well meld into some cocoa and roasted notes, touch of caramel. Taste is more of the resinous, dank hop with some slight grapefruit undertones, going into a nice balanced roast and chocolate middle, finishes bitter. Nicely executed.

Pours a deep brown .. awesome head, lacing is impressive too .. . you can definitely see the brewers come through on this beer .. . very light roast, some sap and burnt hop fields .. . slick smooth mouthfeel, the 7.4 is well done, warms the stomach a bit .. . i might buy again if a touch cheaper .. . . Liquid breakfast. Iíve had champagne on my Golden Grahams.

FUck yeah liked this one alot. Nose of citra hops, tropical fruit, grapefruit, floral notes. Some toast and roast are there as well. Pours dark brown with a nice creamy off white head. The flavor is big on fruity tropical hops, grapefruit, floral notes, a touch of dank here and there. Toast and roast show up in the middle and finish but this showcases the hops. Fine drinkability. Really nice flavorful black IPA. I think anything made with Citra is going to be rated highly by me. Iím a fiend.
