fiammanghilla (968) - Genova, ITALY - SEP 17, 2013
Bottiglia 33cl, 5,8 vol, comprata da eataly e bevuta al lavoro. Color caramello intenso con schiuma fine non troppo persistente. Tostata quel che basta, resinosa, profumata. Grande equilibrio fra corpo e bevibilità. Davvero una gran birra! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhold

haukur (1833) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - NOV 7, 2014
dark brown, small but solid head, loads of lacing. Tropical nose, obvious simcoe character. Quite easy with a bitter finish. Easily the best black IPA I have ever had

Draught. Dark brown with reddish tint, small foamy beige head, floral hos aroma, medium carbonation, pine and lavender flavored balanced hoppy taste, medium finish with slight bitterness at the very end. Quite a complex and interesting beer, loved it.

rafael52 (1040) - Łdź, POLAND - FEB 9, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 13, 2015 Bardzo dobra Black IPA o aromacie amerykańskich chmieli, nie wyczuwalne nuty palonych słodw. Goryczka solidna o cytrusowym charakterze.

Marrom, quase opaca. Espuma abundante de mdia durao. Aroma de lpulo levemente ctrico. Sabor amargo equilibrado, com notas ctricas, resinosas e de madeira. Retrogosto amargo com final adocicado, ligeiramente tostado.

wyzzywyz22 (2108) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2014
Draught, 23 Club, Liverpool. Dark brown looks with a smallish tan head. Piney hop, citrus, choc and a hint of roast present in the beak. A similar yarn unfolded in the sweetish flavour with some very tidy hop bitterness. Extremely drinkable and moreish. Great stuff. Meow.

330ml bottle from The Wine Emporium 231213. Easy drinking this one, gives down well and doesnt strip your palate. Nice and hoppy.

first thing - a really nice bottle and label, it stands out. surprisingly, the beer isnt black, but dark-brown - but I think it can be the case with CDAs. the best thing about this beer is the aroma, hoppy, with lots of esters, it comes out really nice. the taste is also very hoppy - not only in bitterness, which is quite high but very noble and short, but also in the taste as such. Its really enjoyable. foam is nice, too. drawbacks? a bit too thin, I think it would be better with a slightly more full body. a bit soury too, but its not a problem for me - its got this estry-fruity character which not everyone might like, but for me its great. a good beer with a fabulous aroma.
