Great name for a beer, Nice black rye IPA. Roasted malts and pine flavor. Good drinking beer with pizza. We’ll worth a try. frank0830 (70) - South Bend, Indiana, USA - FEB 2, 2014
One of the better black ipas that have been in my snifter. Pours a beautiful black color with a beautiful head. Lacing throughout the drink. Rich in citrus hop aroma, some piney notes and slight hints of toffee also on the nose. I wish the mouthfeel had a little more creaminess but still nothing to cry about. Along with the bitterness, some hints of tar and dark chocolate are on the palate, brownie like. Weird but great! Top notch.

Citrus hops, roasted malt aroma. Grapefruit-ish and spicy hop flavor; Mild roasted, sweet malt. Nice malt flavor--but doesn’t overpower the hops. Some bitterness in aftertaste. BrewMstr (194) - Pleasant View, Utah, USA - JAN 31, 2014
Black, Hoppy, strong, and awesome! Light on aroma but dark chocolate undertones with sour rye hop finish. Drink this! DrElectrico (10) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 30, 2014
Tasty drop. Smooth IPA that hides it?s bitterness (sort of). On tap at easy tiger, not too carbonated which contributes to the smoothness. Plenty of hoppy aroma and kinda strong :)

Deceptively light and refreshing black rye IPA. One of my favorite beer aromas is the floral notes in the hops in this beer. Just a pleasure to drink.

Draft - Roast malts and some hops peeking through. Jet black with a rich beige head. Bitter grapefruit and roast malts pretty well balanced. walley (2) - Arizona, USA - JAN 23, 2014 does not count

Absolutely delicious, until this one came my way I began to think this brewer was a little overhyped, I enjoyed the beers I’ve had, but not living up to the expectations. This was different. Maybe my favorite style over IPA’s due to the combination of flavors, but one that a number of brewers have gotten wrong, either going way too hoppy and forgetting the porter-like roasted quality, or vice versa, or worst of all, forgetting the roasted malt quality all together and relying on house bready malts that ruins it. This made that difficult combination seem easy. Citrus and grapefruit hop forward, coffee and dark chocolate back, supremely made and delicious. brokephibroke (315) - Mead, Colorado, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Bright pine aroma on black beer with a tan head. Nice spice with chocolate and pine. Long bitter linger. Really top notch balance with hops, rye and malt.
