COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Black India Pale Ale is loaded with hops balanced with delicious maltiness. It was brewed with our friends from the great city of New Orleans in the band EYEHATEGOD.

gonzosauce (157) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - MAY 13, 2013
Brown, leaning red. Gently herbal, spiced meat in aroma - a good amount of weird. The flavor begs for either a lot more or a lot less of the oddness that carries from aroma into the flavor, but never definitively characterizes the beer. An absence of body on the palate, though certainly some hopspice. It’s a beer, but the aroma, flavor, and feel all leave more to be desired, particularly for a black IPA. It feels sacrilegious writing this about a 3F brew.

Tortman18 (174) - Batavia, Illinois, USA - MAY 11, 2013
Pours a very dark brown, almost black with a huge 2 finger frothy head. Moderate lacing. Aroma is very hoppy and bitter with a strong citrus undertone, mainly grapefruit. A slight resinous note is hidden in the mix. Mouth is very bitter up front with roasted malt and a slight citrus bite. A slight booziness to it.

DeliveryDriver (170) - Illinois, USA - MAY 11, 2013
Pours a reddissh-black color with a big, frothy, light tan head that dissipates slowly and leaves decent lacing. Strong citrus, resin, and piney notes, or anything else you can think of to describe hops. Rosted malt begin to show up on the tongue, along with a big hop bite. Nice, easy drinking Black IPA.

crossovert (9089) - Illinois, USA - MAY 9, 2013
Brownish dark pour with a creamy off-whtie head that dissipates extremely slowly. Smell is piney/herbal/candied citrus with a backing roasted maltiness. Flavor is again candied fruits, very sweet and boozy, finishing dark cocoa, bread, and roasted malt. I am starting to like this style.

650ml bottle @ Super IPA tasting from Mikkeller & Friends, Copenhagen

Pours dark brown with a small white head. Aroma of grainy malts, some fruitness with hints of lemon, citrus, vanilla and roastiness. Taste of pine, resin, some grainy roastiness and fruity hops. Finish is dry, bitter and roasty with some fruitness. Okay, a bit too grainy black IPA.

65 cl bottle.
Pours dark red color with a medium sized head. Aroma of mild roasted malts, some bread, vanilla, faint coffee, dark berries and faint hops. Flavor of resiny hops, mild roasted malts, distant coffee notes and caramel. Surprisingly non-aggressive brew, quite nice and balanced though.

lusikka (7039) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 9, 2013
650 ml bottle.
Pours a dark brown colour with a beigeish head. Aroma of roasted malts, vanilla, bread and some grass. Flavour of roasted malts, mango, floral hops, biscuit, grass and some chocolate. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a roasty, bitter, floral, chocolatey finish. A bit too musty, but nice and roasty still.

65 cl bottle @ olio
Aroma is bready with rye, some bready notes, cocoa, vanilla and hints of berries. Starts to feel a bit harsh at the end of the glass. Flavour has resiny hops, some nettles, ash, cocoa and woody notes. Creamy palate. Nice.

Bomber sweet roasted smell with some hop. Dark brown with light tan head that lingers. Taste like a deep brown sugar with hoppy fruity notes. Good amount of carbonation to carry this smoothly down. Surprisingly refreshing and holds the characteristics of a ipa while carrying some of that roasted flavor perfectly. Overall I feel this is a great example of a black ipa and highly recommend it.
