mR_fr0g (4840) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2015
Bottle shared at Leightons place. Thanks to the Black IPA king. Clear caramel brown coloured pour with a halo of grayish head. Aroma is sweet caramel, malts, toffee, meaty, light pine hop. Flavour is composed of nutty, caramel Base grains, sticky pine hop, little hint of warming alcohol, sticky hop resin. Palate is medium full, sticky, highish carbonation. Firm pine bitterness, Semi dry finish. Semi sweet. Bit wishy washy.

Scopey (8397) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2015
Bottle at Leighton’s. It pours deep brown with a small off-white head. The nose is fresh, piney, bitter-sweet, orange sherbet, roasted malts and caramel. The taste is bitter, roasted malts, chocolate, cocoa, zesty citrus, piney varnish, pepper and toast with a dry, toasty finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Pretty solid black IPA.

MrHangover (3068) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 2, 2015
Bottle. Pours a very dark beer with a big tanned head on top. Aroma is very malty, touches of licorice, dried citrus, molasses and fruity. Flavor is moderately bitter, loads of molasses in there as well as a crispy hoppy note in the back. Dry moutfheel, soft carbonation and good in balance. Again a nice BIPA.

Bendrixian (1276) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - APR 7, 2015
Brown to light red and clear colour. If I nosed this blind I’m sure I would struggle to pick out the toast as it is a very fruity citrus hoppy IPA and shows little if of toast from blackening up this one. On the palate it is a fresh hoppy experience with decent length and good body. Bitter with caramel. Very good.

djd07 (5180) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 28, 2015
Bottle thanks to Matt. Pours a cloudy brown with small beige head. The aroma is citrus hop and pine. More hop forward than roast forward, nice smoothness compared to over bitter over roast from regular black ipas.

Erzengel (4968) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - FEB 21, 2015
Many thanks to jsquire for this bottle! Great floral fruity nose with hints of dry malt. The beer starts fresh floral, great dry. Dark roasted malt, fresh citrus hops, pine, nice intense bitter. The aftertaste is intense-floral, fruity, nice roasted-smooth with a nice bitter aftertaste. Great brew!

mambossa (46) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JAN 9, 2015
From bottle. Nearly-opaque deep burgundy with off-white head. Aroma is a warm tropical sweetness with high pine notes. Taste starts as sweet citrus then to a smokey, rounded chewiness, finishing off with a nice lingering hop bite. As good as, if not maybe better than the white rajah, in my opinion.
