djd07 (12520) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 21, 2015
On tap at Hopworks Bikebar. Pours a dark ruby brown with small white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is anise and chocolate. Medium mouth, rich malt, chocolate, light bitteness, good.

Dogbrick (12240) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 3, 2012
Sample at the Tap House Grill in Seattle. Pours reddish-brownish-black with a medium fluffy light beige head that diminishes steadily. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt and hops. Medium body with flavors of sweet roasted malt and resiny hops. The finish is piney hops up front and leaves a sweet malty aftertaste. Decent overall.

Great maltiness in this one but the hops just arent bold enough to support them properly in a black ipa.

Sammy (11495) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 5, 2011
UPDATED: JUL 8, 2012 Somewhat disapointing for the style, as a beer. Fresh bottle from Zyn in Calgary. Black body, high IBU, more roastiness in he flavour. Lacey Lots of really roasty as in burnt parts. Hops and citrus in finish. Lace rings. Grows on me, but I am just OK on it.

slowrunner77 (10753) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 29, 2014
Dark and chewy, with a nice mocha meets grapefruit thing going on on the nose and the palate. Super solid black ipa from a brewer I expected less from.

deyholla (10686) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 15, 2012
Bottle thanks to Ben! Pours a clear dark brown with a deep earthy brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount grassy and pine hops with a bit of roast and dark grains. Flavor has a nice combination of roasted malts, dark grains and a bit of resinous pine hop. A bit of a creamy mouth feel.

jercraigs (10060) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 11, 2015
2015-06-03. Very dark brown body with a moderate tan head and nice lace. 3+ Aroma of musky leafy green hops, whisper of roast. Flavour is moderately bitter, light roast and green hop character. Average bodied palate, soft carbonation. Okay. On tap at Underground Tap House, Edmonton.

DuffMan (9746) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 18, 2010
Sampled (draught) at the SpringBeerFest in Portland. Deep walnut brown, amber highlights. Aroma of resin, capsicum, burnt malts. Palate equally showcases earthy roast and leafy bitter hops. An excellently balanced black IPA with heaps of character that really SHOWS its blackness. I find many black IPAs hide the dark malts under a boatload of hops, but this one lets everything shine through beautifully. A standout.

phaleslu (9706) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 15, 2011
22 oz. bottle from curly- thanks, Jason! Pours a dark copper-brown with a big, foamy tan head. Aroma of citrusy hops, toasted malts, powdery chocolate, and dust. Flavor of citrusy hops, grapefruit, roasted malts, wood, chocolate, and coffee. Light-medium bodied, with a citrusy, bitter, toasty mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Really nice take on the style, and Ive been impressed with everything from HUB Ive tried so far.

marcus (9552) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 11, 2010
On tap at the brewpub. Pours black with a decent tan head and toasty aroma. There is a well-balanced flavor featuring roasted malt and tasty hops. It reminds me of an English stong ale.
