A decent balck IPA and I like black IPAs but in a side by side it isnt even close to the best. Pours black with a brown head that lingers. Aroma of spice and sharper west coast hops with a bit of the simcoe "cat piss" aroma. taste is a bit more harsh and astrigent than Id like. Palate is sticky due to this lingering hop bitterness. Overall it is ok but not the best example of the style.

7 July 2013, bottle. Black. Nose is slightly sweet dark chocolate. Thin body and fizzy. Oatmeal malt and bitter grassy hops. I actually like this combo. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

For me, a good black IPA has an equal balance between roast and hops. Not many get that. But happily Hoppy Feet does. Good citrus bitter notes intermingle with the the medium (not milk-not dark) chocolate notes. And it packs a punch of bubbles ands hops that melts into a caramel taste at the very end.

Chipalsa (1310) - Florida, USA - JUL 7, 2013
This was a pretty good brew with a lot going on. Flavors are like a dry hopped porter and there isnt anything special. Its just that hoppy stouts are simply delicious no matter what.

Silphium (3193) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - JUL 5, 2013
Bottle. Hazy deep wine body, medium creamy beige head. Bitter nose, lots of pine, toast, and dark chocolate. Bitter, spicy body with prominent pine, char, and grapefruit rind, backed by modest chewy toasty, candy-like malt that opens up as the beer warms. A solid entry to the style.

jbruner (4359) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUL 2, 2013
Pours a mostly opaque brownish black from the bottle with fluffy tan head that dissipates to leave good lacing. Aroma is sweet piney hops with a nice roasted malt back and a hint of booze. Taste is bitter piney chocolate with a hint of coffee. Nice thick mouth and the bitterness really lingers. Solid, but nothing mind blowing for a black IPA.

Not familiar with the aroma or taste. Pours a dark dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is and taste is sweet but I dont recognize it. Finishes a bit bitter.

arondee (601) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUN 27, 2013
Pours jet black with a small of-white head. Aroma is grapefruit hops and coffee. The taste is way more bitter espresso/coffee than I expected. Its not a sweet black IPA at all. Much more bitter than sweet. Theres some familiar citrus hops in the background but they are totally overshadowed by coffee and burnt malts. Its an ok beer but not my favorite black IPA.

Maris (1425) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JUN 22, 2013
From a 355ml bottle on 22/6/2013. Pours the darkest of amber with a biggish, fluffy head. Has a huge hoppy aroma, featuring pine and resin, along with some fruit and chocolate. This is a very intense experience in the mouth, with a huge hoppy, roasty lingering bitterness ultimately dominating the more subtle chocolatey, fruity flavours which present initially. The body is quite full and the carbonation medium. Comes across as a very big beer, with the huge bitterness likely to be too much for some. that said, its an impressive and challenging Black IPA for those who cant get enough hops.
