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.

Poured from a bomber to a pint glass. Thick, sweet, and tight head over a cola colored beer. The aroma was piney and a bit floral. The flavor for me was a semi-sweet malt character. The beer seemed well balanced, but not for a DIPA. If you go in expecting a really interesting hop character of an IPA, you’ll be disappointed. If you go in expecting a well balanced black ale, you’ll be happy. I rated it highly because I don’t care much about style as long as I enjoy drinking it, and I enjoyed this bottle very much. As others have said, though, it’s far more easy drinking than it is a really interesting and unique beer. But boy is it easy to drink!

Dark porter like appearance. Roasted chocolate and a lite hippiness. Interesting but not memorable. Not a huge fan but drinkable

Nice pine and a bit of resin among with a bit of roast. Moderate bitterness. Faint coffee and a really nice mouthfeel. Easy drinking.

Bottle @ ZZT VII, thx to everyone for sharing their bottles. Black IPA with the balance towards the roasted or dark malts. For me lacks hop aroma. Still a nice drink.

NeuroPliny (208) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 26, 2013
Poured from a 500mL bottle into a chalice. Pours dark brown, almost black. Thick brown head. Aroma is hoppy with layers of malt. There are notes of spices, pepper, and coriander. Flavour is loaded with hops up front with notes grapefruit and lemon. On the back end the dark malts start to come through but the hops win from start to finish which surprised me considering this is a black IPA. Overall a nice hoppy black IPA.

Benzai (9433) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAY 25, 2013
Bottle shared by Kermis @ ZZT VII. Dark brown color with a nice red glare coming through, full sized good lacing, a bit creamy beige head. Smell malts, hops, lightly dark and roasted malts. Taste malts, dark malts, hops, bitter, lightly fruity. A bit off balance. Nice to drink, but not the best black IPA.
