Bottle at home. Pours a dark brown to black with one finger of tan head. Aroma is hoppy citrus. Some roastiness. Flavor follows with Avery balanced bitterness and roastiness. Very nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Passable bipa. Dark brown pour. Little hops in aroma and taste. More roasted malts and a touch of tart. Thinner mouthfeel. Nothing special.

Pours black with tan head. Aroma is hoppy citrus with some dark malts. Flavor is hoppy with balanced roasted malts. Not too hoppy. Good stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

7/27/24. Bottle. Pours reddish black with a big mocha head and lacing. Only mild hop nose and the body dominates by cherry coffee and chocolate notes. As others have notes much more like a thin stout than a BIPA. Perhaps it's been on the store shelf too long ann the hops faded. Isn't it a winter offering? That being said it aged well into something new. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a rich black with a lasting tan head. An ok malty flavor with a touch of cherry. Nothing "IPA" about this beer though. It tastes and drinks like a stout, with only the slightest hint of hop taste... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

OsuStu (262) - - JUN 6, 2014
12 oz bottle. Pours black with a thick tan head. Dark roasty aroma and cherries. Rich chocolate, dark coffee well balanced against mild bitterness. Smooth and lingering palate.

3.6
Bebum (986) - Massachusetts, USA - JUN 6, 2014
Opaque, dense lace, Medium body, intense flavor, silky texture, balanced, long palate. Bitter, dry but not puckering, good acidity. Intense expresso flavor. Very enjoyable, no faults but not very original. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2.3
NeoHippie2 (1074) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUN 2, 2014
Black pour with a tan head. Hoppy and roasty aromas. Flavor is like a dry hoppy stout. Black IPAs like this remind me of why I’m not a big fan of Black IPAs. Tolerable but I wouldn’t drink it again.

Black Cannon pours, well, black. The short tan head leaves nice lacing. The dark roasted malts are apparent with blackberries and cherry present in the aroma. The flavor is not overly bitter. The darker malts balance out the hops. Finish is clean and smooth. Very nice complement to Loose Cannon.
