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.

Papsoe (25074) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 26, 2012
Bottle 35,5 cl. Courtesy of Doodler. Pours a pitch black with a dense light brown head. Hard roast aroma with only a hint of hops. Solid body, hard and a little harsh roasty malts while the hops don’t really add much but bitterness - and it sure ends bitter. I’d call this a Stout - simply. Hasn’t really got the good aroma hops to make this a Black IPA. 260412

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 11, 2012
On tap at the taproom in Indy... Pours a deep silky stout black hued consistency with reddish brown edges and topped with a medium soapy light beige head that quickly recedes leaving a wispy... Aroma of black licorice, abuse, spices, and a light aspect of spruce... Flavors emphasize semi-bitter roasted chocolate and black licorice. The hops kind of fall to the wayside. Medium bodied leaving somewhat an earthy chalky feel towards the finish. Semi-lively carbonation. Totally lacking in the hop department.

Patrickctenchi (4538) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - FEB 9, 2012
Totally black, dark-oatmeal couloured head leaving lace stripes all the way to the end. Nose is harshly floral...taste is herbal,slightly medicinal, dry bitter. Probably a good example of the style, but these don’t really appeal to me too much...still, worth the experience.

Strykzone (5352) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JAN 19, 2012
Sampled at an esbls tasting. Dark with a small tan head. A roasted flavor with tart hops. Some earth. Not a favored style but this is decent.
