Sammy (12610) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 11, 2012
Enjoyed on tap at the Tap Room. A story of Cascade, emphasizing the hop as opposed to roast. A sipper, as alcohol warming. Piney aroma. Some toothpaste taste, also apple cidery in the finish. 75 IBU Black with lace and some head.

slowrunner77 (12588) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 11, 2014
"Pretty much exactly what I expected/hoped for from this brew. Like all the other "Racer" IPAs. pungent hops, both pine and citrus, ample bitterness...and a light but distinct roasted malt, coffee abd coca character. At no point do you realize you are drinking an imperial strength brew. I don’t think this will have a long shelf life, but very good fresh. Finishes bitter and dry."

3.3
BVery (11232) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - AUG 24, 2013
Tap at the brewpub. Dark cola pour with a small white head. Pine hop, earthy malt. Picking up a touch of yeast. Touch of roasty malt as well.

3.6
hopscotch (11181) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 3, 2016
Bottle... Pours hazy and dark brown with a tan head. The aroma features chocolate, resin and a light splash of alcohol. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. The flavor is roasty, burnt, bitter and a touch chocolaty. As this warms, the resiny hop bitterness doesn’t mellow. It stands strong. Burnt, grassy, pine finish.

3.9
daknole (11050) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUN 27, 2013
Nice dark brown pour with a cream colored head. Good intergration of roasted malts and the hops. Seamless to be exact. Very nice beer.

3.7
DocLock (10970) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 29, 2013
Bomber from Capone’s. Pours hazy dark brown toward black with 2-finger well-retained khaki head and a lot of floaties. Nose is roasty dark malt, cacao,resiny hops. Tastes roasty dark malty, with notes of cacao, resiny hops, an overall high IBU level, and a crisp hoppy finish with more notes of roasty malt.

3.3
cubs (10693) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 21, 2013
Bottle @ Ben and Greg’s apartment. Pours a bit hazy brown appearance with a brown head. A bit spicy, slightly piney, herbal hoopy, roasty aroma. A bit minty, piney, somewhat bitter, chocolate flavor. A little disappointment.
