brokensail (16689) - Dublin, California, USA - SEP 28, 2017
On tap @ Drakes Dealership. Black in color with a finger of khaki foam. One of the better Black IPAs in recent memory. Kind of reminds me of the original Stone 11th Anniversary, actually. Good amount of juicy and acidic grapefruit to this, some orange as well. Definitely some roast, but not as much of that chocolate and coffee that I get from a lot of Black IPAs. Pronounced bitterness of grass, citrus rind, and herbs.

slowrunner77 (13171) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 9, 2014
This inky brew had some heft to it, bit none of us beleived it was really 11.5%! Covers the abv well. Thick, juicy hops in the nose...grapefruit, orange peel, pine, chocolate, molasses, coffee...alot going on in the nose and mouth. Bitter leaning but well balanced and deeeeelicious. I’d definitely buy in bottles."

bhensonb (15958) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 23, 2013
Tap at Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours very dark brown with orange glints and a dark tan head. Aroma suggests cat pee! Med + body. Flavor is dark malt and a lot of citrus. Mild burn. Could be hops or heat or a combo. Finishes very tasty. Just excellent.

Draft. Black beer with a dark cream head. Big grapefruit and summer fruit aroma. Grapefruit and summer fruit flavor. Medium bodied. Good bitterness. Grapefruit and summer fruit lingers with light cocoa and malt.
