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 trapped (3097) - New York, TURKEY - NOV 25, 2014
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 (1416) - Łódź, POLAND - FEB 9, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 13, 2015 Bardzo dobra Black IPA o aromacie amerykańskich chmieli, nie wyczuwalne nuty palonych słodów. Goryczka solidna o cytrusowym charakterze. vidmidia (286) - Vila Velha, BRAZIL - AUG 17, 2015
Marrom, quase opaca. Espuma abundante de média duração. Aroma de lúpulo levemente cítrico. Sabor amargo equilibrado, com notas cítricas, resinosas e de madeira. Retrogosto amargo com final adocicado, ligeiramente tostado.

Cloudy amber, huge rocky head. Stays. Big mango and passion fruit on nose. Additional lemon. A hint of yeast. Medium body. Hoppy dry taste. Juicy. Yet not really bitter. Pleasant yeast. Very good. I don’t mind it doesn’t fit the style at all.Baramba (1038) - ITALY - SEP 16, 2014

33 cl bottle. Dark mahogany colour with creamy head. Hoppy aroma, caramel,bitterness. Dry end gianthogweed (55) - Cracow, POLAND - NOV 19, 2014
first thing - a really nice bottle and label, it stands out.
surprisingly, the beer isn’t 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. It’s 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 it’s not a problem for me - it’s got this estry-fruity character which not everyone might like, but for me it’s great. a good beer with a fabulous aroma. sir__v (2618) - FRANCE - JUN 6, 2017
