Draft at Fresh Craft. Poured a deep mahogany with a frothy tan head. The aroma is citrus fruit and hop. The flavour is medium bitter with a liqourice, yeast, moderately dry hop palate. A nice beer but a black IPA needs a little more I feel. TylerGreenDC (1054) - - OCT 8, 2013
On draft at brewery. Aroma of dark chocolate and coffee. Flavors of roasted malts, chocolate and sweetening hops, more mango than citrus. Nice head, dense lacing. A brisk, drinkable example of the style. arrogantb (1402) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 10, 2012
On tap at the Falling Rock it was listed as Ore Cart but I saw it on the internet as Ore Bucket so whatever. Dark black color, light tan head, it certainly looks the part. The aroma was alright with a slight hint of hops but really smelled like a porter to me. I swear these "IBA’s" are really just extra hoppy porters. The flavor was good, hoppy,and extremely easy to drink. I’d definitely order this again if I had the chance.
Serving type: on-tap

(Draught) Pours a black body with a medium beige head. Aroma of citrus, mango, passion fruit, light pine, and roasted malt. Flavor of roasted malt, citrus, nuts, and pine with a dry, bitter finish. notalush (5922) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - MAY 15, 2011
Tap at Freshcraft - black pour with an impressive off white head - nose of bitter black malts and resinous, piney hops - creamy body - falls into the trap that many black ipas do up front in that it is a bit too sweet and stouty - a fair amount of acidity through the middle - dries out enough for the strong, earthy, wood hops to be welcome - finish is a bitt too acidic - pretty good, though. cubs (10714) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 12, 2011
On tap @ Falling Rock. Black appearance with a thick brown head. Roasted dark malts and piney hops in the nose. Slightly grapefruity, medium piney hoppy flavor with mildly roasted dark malts. Piney bitter finish with a mostly piney aftertaste.
