bottle - Pours black with a one finger, tan head. The aroma is of roast malt with underlying citrus. It tastes of roasted malt with high bitterness and some nice pine character. It works.

12oz bottle 6/8/13 (Binnys Downers Grove Mix a Six)-40 in Shaker-Pours black with a small loose tan head. Aroma of hops, chocolate, and coffee. Taste of the same with more chocolate and coffee. This medium to full bodied brew has a lot darker tastes and is still easily drinkable. Great brew.

On tap at Greenbush Brewpub. Dark brown with ruby lowlights and thin off-white head. Aroma of cat pee, pine, resin, caramel and roasted malts. Taste is resinous with high alpha hops, lightly roasted malt, bubble gum, citrus and finishes up moderately bitter. Nice effort, I enjoyed this one!

pours black with a thin tan head. aroma has charred notes, caramel, a touch of anise, and a bit of a magic marker note. flavor is roasty with good burnt bitterness...notes of anise and citrusy hops...thankfully no magic marker taste. mouthfeel is medium and silky with a dry burnt/bitter roasty/dark fruit/anise finish.

queenholly (3623) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - OCT 10, 2011
Tap at brewery. Faint smoke, hops, molasses aroma. Cola brown, ruby tine, small creamy tan head. Dark roasted malt and hops. Dry chalky finish. There seems to be something a little overly sweet in the malt. In fact, most of the GB beers I tried had the same distinctive overly sweet malt flavor.

growler... dark brown with a light tan head, held up good for a growler... this is on the roastier spectrum for a black ipa but if you enjoy that youre going to love this, excellent

Draft at Box Bar. Pours a pitch black color with a thick off white head that lingers. Aromas of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, pine, and citrus. Taste is very smooth and delicious. Roasty with a solid bitterness, nice amount of pine and citrus hops, and a thick body. Long roasted malt and hoppy finish. Really good black ipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 5, 2011
Draft at Kumas. Pours a slightly murky dark brown verging on black, tan head. Nose is a blast of roast, floral hops, citrus and pine. The roast is too much for the style here. Lots of hops come across, though. On tasting, light savory roast is set aside for the strongly citrusy hop profile. Very firm bitterness enhanced by the drying roast. Clean fermentation but the roastiness is a bit distracting, keeping it from hitting the upper echelon. Solid.

Decent Black IPA. The hops combine for a soapy like character that Im not a huge fan of but the roasty backbone is there and the hop presence is strong.

Full pour and first pint had at greenbush, rated last... Pours a deeper mostly opaque dark reddish black hue. A reluctant wispy ring if light beige head rests on top... Aroma of green citrusy pine hope, lighter roast and grain on the backend. Solid and without that yeast character. Thank goodness for that... Flavors follow suit consistently with a similar hop profile with more of a firmly planted roasted malt and grain presence. Medium bodied with adequate carbonation. A slightly bitter roast finish presents itself late.
