Super awesome black ipa, bomber from whole foods, rich dark ipa, roasty, piney, kickass Terminus (3710) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 23, 2011
bottle-pours almost black with a soapy kacki head that lasted a long time cold but not very long warm. seems somewhat backwards. nose is of piney hops, char, smoke, lite chocolate with some herbal character. flavors are very chary with alot of pine and herbal hop notes. very well balanced but leaves a bigtime char finish. could be the least metallic Black IPA i have had to date. the malt has enough sweetness to overide the metalllic flavors. some alcohol detected long into the finish. somewhat warming. a very tasty example of this style! mjg74 (3156) - La Mesa, California, USA - AUG 29, 2012
Bomber from BevMo. Nose is quite hoppy with a little bit of sweet roasted maltiness. Fairly hoppy with some sweetness. Good amount of roast. Nice balance of hops and roast. JohnC (3008) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - APR 5, 2012
I had this on draft at Karl Strauss in Costa Mesa. At first it tasted a bit thin and watery, but as I got further along a nicely balanced roasty, hoppy beer showed up. garthicus (2942) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAY 11, 2012

22oz bottle. Rating #48. Tasty beer, nice light roast with a bit of spicy rye and moderate bitterness. Good stuff and well made. (2560) jonno (2879) - JAPAN - FEB 19, 2013
KS got the chops - this is pretty darn good. Good chocolate malt body, a hint of rye with some pretty big PNW hops. All tied together pretty well. Not overtly flash, but lean, mean and hop green. Ober (2819) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - AUG 8, 2012
A black colored beer, with a thick foamy beige head. The aroma of sweet roasted malt with fruits and hop, The taste of sweet fruits, roasted malt, laurel and some hops. The aftertaste of laurel, some fruits with a little bitter. Fatehunter (2603) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAY 13, 2013
Poured a finger of tan head on a black body.
The aroma is a rich roasted malt, coffee and molasses. Wonderful.
The taste is rich as well. Roasted malt, rye spice, coffee just a little bit burnt.
The texture is crisp with low to moderate carbonation.
Quite delicious. StefanSD (2451) - Ouray, Colorado, USA - JUL 1, 2011
UPDATED: JUL 2, 2011 Taster at Bev4less. Black pour with a medium tan head that had good retention. The aroma is sharp with chocolates and some burnt toast. The flavor is more of the same, lost of roasted malts, biter walnuts, spicy breads and burnt toast. The palate is full and smooth with soft carbonation. Finishes long and biter. Overall: Very tasty.
