Blairgus (4122) - California, USA - DEC 14, 2012
14 dec 2012, bottle. Dark brown. Too dark to say but it looks a bit hazy. Nose is alcohol, oatmeal cookies, grassy hops. Thin body and fizzy. Some pineapple, bitter grapefruit rind, very bitter finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from beer merchants. Pours murky brown with fluffy tan head. Pithy grapefruit and resinous pine nose, sherbert grapefruit with a slightly chalk chocolate finish. Fairly bitter numbing the mouth, well carbonated.

JorgeLee (1759) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2012
Bottle from the Kernel. Pours deep black with big white head, looks fantastic. Kernel hoppy aroma. Smooth on the palate, good example of a black ipa with malty background and long bitter finish. Didn’t quite have the extra complexity expected from having rye in the mix, which was a bit disappointing, but it is still very good beer.
