Rating #968 - February 11, 2014 - Belated #mondaynightbeers with @brnewstead. Bomber from Co-op. Aroma is super orangey, grapefruit, and lemon notes, as well as a bit of malty sweetness. Palate actually holds a decent earthy roasty character, but ends up a bit of a fruit bomb for an IBA/CDA. Medium body for 7.6%, medium alcohol warmth. Balance is there between the sticky sweet citrus and the dry-hop bitterness. Certainly crushable, no doubt, especially for CDA freaks. Great IBA.
On tap at Hops Northwest in New Westminster. A very dark beer with generous tan head and faint roasted nose. A nice black ipa with mostly tasted malt notes and a trace of hop. Not bad . 3.3. pictoman (1171) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 5, 2014
Poured from the tap. Brownish black with beige head. Very mild roast malt with resinous hops. Very dry and resinous, but not much flavour. Finish is just overwhelmingly bitter with minimal finish. Masterkush7 (580) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 26, 2014
This was good. Lots of hop aroma and flavour. Taste son were between an IPA and a stout with lots of roastyness and big hop flavour.

Aroma is a slight roastiness and some smokiness. Taste is a dry roastiness which has some caramel notes and paired hopiness with some tangy finish. Appearance is a dark black one with lace head that retains very well. Lagerboy (2221) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 13, 2014
Dated bomber, what a concept. Clear deep dark copper brown, tan creamy foam head mostly fades. Caramel roast aroma, citrus floral pine. Bitter dark roast taste, a bit watery, pine and citrus hop. Softer carbonation, medium thin body, moderately hopped. Dry bitter singed malt finish. NFL (Not For Lagerboys) simonblaine (576) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 31, 2013
Pours black with generous frothy head. Aroma of pine, berries, burnt wood. Taste is the same. Mildly hoppy, not horrible.

Draught sample. Deep brown with a dense tan cap, solid lacing. Aroma of milk chocolate. Smells way more like a stout. Taste is more boastful of pine, roasted nuts, and a shwack of milk chocolate again. A late-coming, but lingering dry mouthfeel. Reminds why I've stayed clear of cannery and it's "meh".

Not up to the great black IPAs, but a nicely drinking hoppy beer. very earthy and above average mouthful, a bit of smoke and lots of roast.
Bottle from Duffman.
