Spicy black IPA. Quite a kick. Murky dark red brown. Nose of spicy rye with nice citrus aroma. Some pine and grass. Taste has nice subtle bitterness with fruit and smokiness to go with the dryness of the rye. Complex. Medium mouthfeel, quite dry. Great. Metalchopz (3447) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 25, 2013
Enjoyed at Yard House at the Red Rock Resort in Las Vegas. Pours a dark brown colour with a creamy beige head and decent sticky lacing. Beautiful grassy aromas of hops giving grapefruit and other citrus notes. Light chocolate in the background. Nice dark grain taste with again, lots of hop citrus character. Good dryness in the mouth with well-balanced wetness. Medium to heavy body with the alcohol well-hidden. A black IPA more on the hoppy side than roasted malts, making it hard to taste and smell the rye. JHeath99 (1679) - Warner Robins, Georgia, USA - NOV 25, 2013
Tap. Pours deep dark opaque black with very little head. Aroma of fruit and malts. Taste of coffee and floral hops. Tstamba (775) - Maryland, USA - NOV 24, 2013
From a bomber, thanks to my bro Kevin on a Buckeye weekend! Pours black with one finger tan head, good retention and lacing. Smells like an IPA, hop forward, strong citrus and pine. Complex palate, hops balanced with roasted malts, hints of grain and rye with smooth bitterness on the finish... Excellent brew, would love to try on draft or a BA version...

UPDATED: MAR 3, 2014 Bottle. Fresh baked bread, funk, rye grain up front with notes of chocolate, dark roasted malts, and medium level hops on the finish. This is beer somehow takes two brewing trends (Rye and black IPAs) and turns them into a great beer. Brenhophead (695) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 21, 2013
650mL bottle. Pours thick black with an off white head. Aroma is absolute stunning, loads of peach, nectarine, grapefruit as well as a hint of dark chocolate. Resinous piney note also come through after it has sat for a couple of minutes. What an amazing start to a beer. Creamy mouth feel with medium carbonation. The tropical fruits dominate the amazingly complex flavour with resinous piney taking a back seat. Earthy charred notes from the malt also play a role. What a stunning beer.

Bottle @ home. Black pour, rocky tan head. Aroma is huge roasted, chocolate, coffee, licorice, spices and floral hops with some resin. Flavor is bitter roasted and hoppy, smooth and creamy. Perfect balance and huge body, while still very smooth. Amazing brew.
