Had this one on-tap at the brewpub. Light ruby edges make this one just less-than-black. A nice small cap of foam on top leaves perfect sip rings on the glass edge. Excellent nose bursting with notes of pine scent, citrus, fresh crushed hop pellets. Great inviting hoppy scent! Good body. Not too thick, easy to drink. Moderate carbonation. Well-balanced. Juicy, flavorful hops make up the bulk of this one. Nice bitter pop to it, but great citrusy flavor. Some mild cocoa-like sweetness noted, a little dry character on the finish. A good dark bitter beer. I like this one better than their standard IPA I think. Nice work retooling this one, Foothills.

355ml bottle. Bronw pour. Not too much to this one, your standard black ipa, leaning away form hops and more towards a roasted malt character and bitterness.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is pitch black with a large light tan head. The aroma is roasted malts and hops. The taste matches the nose.

OK, so anything from a bottle called frostbite should be white? Well, no, this is big and black but large and in charge. Smells like IPA fer sure, tastes like IPA fer sher and it feels like IPA; ferrrr sherrrrerr. If my eyes were shut I would think this is just another potent IPA. But they’re not and I see a big black beer that is insulting my cheap pale lager taste buds wwheww louie louie louie louwoahwwww. Terribly on style and I may say it treads into imperial IPA territory. If you like IPA, try this and do not care about my numbers, whew. Big ass volatile brew. Seems like much more than 7%. Some hidden carbonation cutting thru in the end.

11/20/16. On tap at Craft on Draft. Almost black pour under a nice tan head. Mild aroma, roasted malts and caramel, hint of pine and citrus. Good flavor, nice balance, not too bitter, chill roasted malts, chocolate and coffee, citrus and floral aspects, some pine, some dank. Tasty!

Pours cola brown with lasting just off white head and lace. Aroma is roasted malts with a pine hop that reminds me of creosote. Taste is of roasted malts, a bit of coffee and chocolate but the finish is a bright pine hop. Interesting.
