On tap at Tria Taproom. Dark brown with beige foam. Nose is orange peel, grapefruit, cherry and chocolate with a hint of lemon zest. Medium body with soft carb. Taste is grapefruit, mango, Bakers chocolate and coffee. Unlike most black IPAs Ive tried this one features complimentary instead of clashing bitter notes. Subdued sweetness allows hops to blend into the dark roast.

tom10101 (5535) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 17, 2015
On tap at both Hill Farmstead and Parker Pie the same day. Dark brown (almost black) with a medium creamy beige head and good lacing. Aroma is grassy hops and roasted malts forward, but theres also cocoa notes and oniony notes. Taste is very slightly sweet and features the same flavors as aroma along with a medium bitterness. Body is medium. Carbonation is medium. Mouthfeel is silky smooth and also somewhat creamy. Grassy and roasty finish. Rather dry. Very easy drinking, but also really flavorful Black IPA. A winner.

JulienHuxley (5656) - Trois-Rivires, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 16, 2015
On tap at Parker pie. Opaque brown black pour with super lacy tan head. Aroma is super hoppy, very dank, grassy hop, light roast. Taste is bitter, lots of juicy fresh hop flavor, oatmeal malty notes, very hop heavy (very tasty). Palate is med bodied and creamy, light carbonation. Quite good.

Pours a dark brown with a thick tan head. The aroma is pungent citrus, with notes of grapefruit followed by chocolate. The flavor is moderately bitter

Draft at the Blackback. Pours a dark black, fairly clear for a dark, and had a medium off white head to it. Aroma had some coffee, pine, resin to it. Flavor was very good and not what I was expecting. Surprisingly very hoppy. I got notes of citrus, pine, resin, coffee, and hints of chocolate. Medium body, thin texture, average carbonation. Mildly bitter on the finish. Overall, one of the better black IPAs.

Another offline rating from last December. Taster at the source. Jet black with a nice head. Smell was very hop forward, like I would expect from HF "lighter" hoppy ales, roasted malts, slight cocoa, and a bit of hay. Taste again with the hops, piney, resin, slight juicy citrus, roast, bit of cocoa, and a nice bitterness. Best I have ever had of the black IPA style.

ThirstyBird (2654) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2013
catching up with an old rating from 2010. From a growler thanks jedwards! Appears super dark cola color with a nice tan head than falls to a blanket. Smell is citrus, chocolate and dark malt. The taste is slightly sweet up front, lightly bitter in the middle with a subtle dryness on the aftertaste. Medium body with elegant, smooth fine carbonation.

750mL swing top thanks to GT2 via yourefragile. Thanks! Great appearance : opaque black with a fluffy tan head. Webby lacing. Aroma is peat moss, ash, wet earth. Taste is woody, bitter, hints of fresh grapefruit juice paired with coffee. Strange combination of aromas and flavors that dont meld as well as its rivals. Palate is okay, thinner, needs more body. Feels overly bitter and sharp. Definitely good beer but disappointing for hill farmstead.
