jbruner (4408) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - APR 27, 2014
Pours an opaque brownish black on tap with fluffy tan head that leaves great lace. Aroma is a nice balance of roast, chocolate, and piney hops. Taste follows, dry and bitter, but the roast opens up more as it warms up. Very nice balance, good carbonation, better than I was expecting.

Fresh taped keg at beer revolution. I have no clue what this is supposed to be……. Black IPA? Dark black brown no cap really. Dam you Jeff for tricking me into ordering this, me no likey!! Everything taste toasted, with coffee hints, and grapefruit. Not a fan of this style, this is a crap review by me…..sorry beer you deserve better.

Pint on tap at Beer Revolution’s Edmonton location pours black in color with a small off-white head that leavers some thin lacing on the glass. Aroma is light roasted grains with some pine and grapefruit and a hint of chocolate. Taste is a roasted grain and pine, grapefruit hop bitterness balanced nicely with a light chocolate and malty sweetness. Medium bodied with decent carbonation. A well done black IPA that I really enjoyed tasting.
