On draft at the brewery. Pours black with a tan head. Hoppy nose. Flavors of tobacco with vegetal notes. Bitter finish. maxwelldeux (4374) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - JAN 25, 2015
Bottle. Pours a near black color with a moderate tan head on there. Nose is more grassy and floral than it is roasty, though I can get just a hint of some roasting in there. Taste is fairly bitter, though a more robust roasting is coming through underneath. Pretty decent, actually. madchemist83 (272) - USA - JAN 3, 2015
Roasty, coffee notes comingled finely with citrus of Pacific west hops. Brown with tan head. Roasted, coffee, grapefruit. Ok ipa. Balanced well for 8.5 percenter slowrunner77 (12051) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 2, 2014
supposedly 145 ibus, this is a dark, rich, monster of a beer that ended up being quite enjoyable, but again - overpriced. thick, resinous, with bright hop complexity and enough dark roasty malt to balance but not overpower. just a good beer all around." cards04 (2813) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 12, 2014
A great little back IPA. Pours a dark brown with milky mocha head. Aromas are pine and citrus. Bitter chocolate flavors with fresh green hop notes. Delicious.

12 oz. bottle. It pours black with a tan head. The aroma has really nice chocolate and roast with intense piney and citrusy hops. Good balance of the two contrasting aromas. The flavor is the same. Nice chocolate and roasted malt with intense piney, woody, citrus hops. It finishes mostly bitter, but with some roasted coffee as well. A very nice Black IPA DW78715816 (119) - Kansas, USA - JUN 25, 2014
Pours black with an aroma of coffee, malt , and some hops. Flavor is more like a hoppy porter. Not a lot of hops but has the sweetness and coffee flavor of a good porter with more hops. I enjoyed it.

A sweet thick sugary stout aroma. Very black in color. Quite roasty with a fair amount of hops but it just wasn’t working for me. May be done with style for awhile. onceblind (9707) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 20, 2014
Clear ish dark brown with a thin light tan head. The aroma has a light roastiness with a wee bit of floral/leafy/piney hop tone. Smooth flavor of dark sweet roastiness and a light grassy and earthy bitterness I can’t entirely pin down, except explaining it as leafy and earthy and balanced. Not too roasty or too bitter or acidic. A nice big but nuanced BIPA. stevoj (5068) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 13, 2014
Decent but not memorable black IPA, decent aroma and taste, but no specific character rises above. Good, but not outstanding.
