philipmeese (84) - Rowayton, Connecticut, USA - MAY 19, 2013
12oz can. Pours opaque black with thick foamy tan head. Aroma of deep hops up front and roasted caramel back. Body heavy with a soft carbonation. Flavor salt balanced by bitter, tapering nicely. Overall, a fairly simple brew for an IPA, but likeable. I was hoping for something more complex, but i am on a quest for the perfect Black IPA, so my standards may be unrealistic right now.

erickok (5941) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAY 27, 2017
Roasted malts and hoppy but not quite as fresh as expected. Full flavour, very clean fermentation, a bit too much maybe. Bit watery in palate. Perhaps my hopes were too high but Id like my bipa a bit rougher, tougher. (Can at Carolines in Berkeley)

tricksta_p (4336) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - APR 7, 2017
Can from Beergium. Aroma is roasted malt, fruity hops, tropical fruits, citrus, orange, chocolate, grapefruit, with a slight touch of coffee. Flavour is moderate sweet with a firm bitter finish. Body is medium. Lovely balance between tropical fruity hops and roasty malts, really great example of the style, I do not understand why this is not rated higher.

Banksiz (130) - Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 11, 2017
UPDATED: FEB 15, 2017 Mainly roasty nose with a very slight touch of a rubbery off-odor. Medium sweet with a bitterness made up from roasty and hoppy notes. Some vanilla notes. Medium slick body with a bitter finish. A bit more stout-like than most black IPAs. Good beer, but theres a bit of harshness in the bitterness.

Excellent. Love the dark malts. Interesting not available in bottle. For some reason, beer seems to taste better in a can.
