Growler shared by Minderbinder, thanks man! It pours a dark brown with a small beige head on top that leaves nice lacing. Nose is of soap, pine and resin. Taste is moderately bitter and lightly roasty with some nice piny flavors. Feels quite fresh, almost like if there was menthol in there. Both body and carbonation were moderate. Nice and really well balanced! One of my best black IPAs so far Im sure!

Tap at the Jeffrey. Blackish pour nose is cocoa and wheat. Taste of wheat, cocoa, flat cola, grapefruit, only hint of pine, and malty. Subdued palate and not bitter at all. Ok

Growler at my parents house, shared with my dad. Thanks Frank!!! Pour is pitch black with a pillowy brown head and great lacing. Pine, grass, roasted cocoa, light coffee, a touch of vanilla, and wood in the aroma. Pine needles, earthy hops, roasted malt, dark chocolate, bread, and graham crackers with a big bitter finish. Medium mouthfeel with medium-to-soft carbonation. Not my favorite HF beer, but a damn solid Black IPA.

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.

reggiedunlop (3703) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 14, 2013
Pours black with a medium creamy tan head...nice lacing and retention. Aroma has bitter dark chocolate and mild pine. Flavor has slightly more pine, burnt/roastiness, dark chocolate, and even a hint of espresso...fairly bitter. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is roasty/piney and very bitter...dry and lingering.

UPDATED: JAN 23, 2013 750 mL growler paired with original Nintendo and a wife. The beer is a deep, dark shade of brown nearing black. The head is wet sand hued, standing in at nearly two inches tall and plastering the tulip glass with sticky lacing.The aroma offers pine, hops, roast, chocolate. So fresh and flavorful. While Im not normally a huge fan of black IPAs, this one is delicious. Hop forward, yet well balanced, offering chocolate, bready malts and lingering resinous pine. Medium bodied and smooth on the palate. Lightly bitter for the style with an elegant roast character.While Hill Farmstead Jimmy is undoubtedly my favorite black IPA (though barrel aging certainly plays a role in this instance), Foster stands in second. A great example of the style.

Growler provided by Chris, drank from my Hill Farmstead glass... Dark brown body with a light tan head that is very bright. Good retention and lacing... The aroma is very nice lots of rye, coffee, hoppy finish... The taste has more hops than anything, a very hoppy rye beer. Light roast coffee with lots of pine hops. The roast and hops are perfectly intertwined and compliment each other perfectly. A great hoppy rye ipa.
