COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Komodo Dragonfly Black IPA is a well-balanced, dark, bitter, and totally unique beer experience. We brewed this IPA with a base of fresh Pilsner Malts and darkened the color with pure Black Malts, creating a clean malt character that allows the liberal hop additions to shine through. Komodo is dry hopped and aged with a pinch of lavender to add to the overall aromatic experience.

FROM NOTES: August 2, í12 A: Heavily roasted presence with citrusy freshness from the leafy hops. A: Pours a non-transparent black with a solid tan colored head that dissipates slowly, leaving lacing clinging to the glass. T: Light flavor of roasted malts followed by pine and citrusy hops. There is a mild burnt bitterness with notes of coffee and cocoa. P: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky O: GOD DAMN, I love American Black Ale! Delicious, well-balanced, beautiful, and fantastic smelling. Definitely drinkable.

12oz bottle in a shaker. Pours black with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of floral and lightly citrusy hops, some pale and dark malts, a little lavender, and some dough. Flavor the same with a nice blend of everything. Average texture. A good black IPA, but Iím not sure how fresh this bottle was.

hotstuff (4284) - Indiana, USA - AUG 30, 2013
Backlog rating year 2010. This bottled beer pours a small tan head with good retention, opaque body, fair amount of lacing, and a dark brown-black hue. The Aroma is malty, coffee, roasty, burnt, and hops. The Taste mimics the Aroma along with a rich taste. The Palate is fairly smooth and this beer is medium bodied. Overall, this is a tasty beer, but the downside for me is that it is too roasty and burnt tasting. This beer is worth trying.
