Congratulations to Brian Pramov & Bryan Keas of Denver, CO, for winning our Batch #1000 homebrew competition! Their intensely hoppy, dark rye ale caught the judges’ attention and was the unanimous choice for best in show.

Pours a solid black with a foamy tan head and lacing. The aroma has lots of hoppy resin and pine along with a bit of toasty malt and rye. The flavor is dark malts up front with a resin backbone and great spicy rye finish over a medium-heavy body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle courtesy of the Tampa crew. Pours a deep stour brown with a tan head. Nose is big piney roasty, coffee, dark malts, and some spicy rye. Flavor is similar with roast, coffee, rye, huge pine, and bitterness. Medium in body and lingering piney hops in the finish. Very enjoyable for the style.

RedSox2004 (1139) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - MAR 22, 2014
Dark chocolate brown with a strong, two-finger tan head that left a solid thick film and wonderful lace. Earthy aromas with chocolate, coffee, and rye. Nice balance of leafy, grassy hops with the chocolate malt and rye. Medium to full body, thick and creamy mouthfeel, low carbonation and a pleasant sweetness in the finish.

Thick dark tan head you could float a dime on. Dark black opaque body. Nothing special about the aroma. Nice rye kick to the bitterness and the bitterness lingers for quite some time. Mouthfeel is good. Reminds me of a bitter stout rather than an IPA. I’d drink it again.

750, capped. Thanks J! Pours a murky jet black with a dense and creamy tan head. Roasty sweet nose, hints of coffee and chocolate, but then it’s mostly a big sharp intense bright piney hop nose. Creamy medium body with nice toasty dry malts and then some sweet bright piney hops. Long roasty crisp resiny finish. Not bad at all.

Fare thee well Josh tasting at Bruce’s. Opaque black - brown beer, big pale tan - cream coloured head. Palate is airy and dry and a little crispy. Toasted malt with dry bitterness. Smoother lighter malt on top. Good piney hop bitterness, getting some hop spice but not too much rye. Mild sweet floral not and subtle red berry fruits underneath. Bitterish dry finish with a long bitter linger. Muscular BIPA.

maneliquor (2785) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 22, 2014
Bottle shared in London for my farewell drinks. Big thanks to kenny for a final Bruery beer. Pours black with a thick tan head retaining nicely. Nose is mild aniseed, plenty of vanilla and spice, milk chocolate and piney hops. Taste is pine driven hops with powdery cocoa, some woodiness and dry spice. Nice dark fruits here as well. Not the hoppiest of BIPA’s but plenty going on. Nice stuff

Bottle shared at Josh’s Farewell Hoorah - big thanks to Kennybobs senior officer in the CDA alliance, 20/02/14. Light black with a big old tan head that retains well. Nose is light smoke, floral notes, dank hops, bitter grapefruit, light roast, hint of cocoa. Taste comprises earthy cocoa, mineral bite, low calorie rye bread, dank hops, tropical fruit tang. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, bitter hop linger in the close. Solid CDA.

Scopey (5521) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2014
Bottle thanks to Bruce. It pours jet black with a thick tan head. The nose is fresh, piney, soapy, chocolate, cola, toasty, roast, spice and faint aniseed. The taste is pine, roasted malt, toast, good lick of bitterness, spice, booze, aniseed, spicy edge and earth with rich, lingering finish. Fullish body and moderate carbonation. A big, ballsy black IPA. Not a whole lot of depth, but it ain’t too shabby.
