GSAP (736) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 26, 2016
Smaak van druiven, licht bitter met kruid en wat pittig. Lange nasmaak is een plus. Donkere kleur, hoe verrassend.

radassace (257) - SCOTLAND - OCT 8, 2016
First black IPA Ive tried so the rating may change. Black colour with small tan head, some kind of sultana cake soaked in brandy on the nose. Taste and mouthfeel is similar to a porter with roasted malt, dark chocolate and bit bready cake again. Finished off with some typical bitter grapefruit orange peel hopps, not too dry. Really liked it will buy again, and certainly need to try some more of this style !
