Bomber from Winooski Beverage Warehouse: Nearly black, thin tan head. Citrus filled hop aroma with some resinous pine notes. Dry, moderate bitterness. Some faint mineral-earth like flavors lead into a big grapefruit hoppiness. Good rendition of the style.

On draft pour. Black with a tannish head. Hops in the aroma, and more in the taste. Pine, citrus, and light pineapple. Very smmoth for the alcohol content.

Bouteille de 22 oz, merci Martin ! Arômes de houblon américain résineux et de cacao. Robe brune et trouble, légère dentelle et effervescence assez faible. En bouche, on retrouve une bonne dose de houblon résineux rappelant les écorces d’agrumes (pamplemousse). Le malt apporte principalement des notes de cacao. Finale plutôt sèche et très amère. Une bonne bière, mais qui manque peut-être un peu de raffinement.

bottle courtesy of reynolds314, thanks! this is exactly why i dont like black ipa’s. big time clash all over for me. in the aroma, the taste, the mouthfeel and finish, all of it. it is citrusy more than piney. not the worst ive had, but ive only had a few black ipas i like and this isnt really one unfortunately.

Dark black colour with nice tan head. Impressive hoppy aroma. Noticeable licorice, toasted malt, bitter citrus in flavour. Lingering bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPad

thunderhops (224) - Vermont, USA - APR 27, 2012
Big hop roasted earthy aroma, pours pitch black tight head with some lacing, taste all over the place some sweetness very bitter you could pick up a lot, medium body sticky texture, finish is a palate wrecking long lasting bitterness

RB1 (118) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - MAY 29, 2012
22oz. bottle shared by Dave S. Pour is dark brown to black, very little head. Aroma is clean and hoppy. Hops really jump out at you. Smooth hoppy taste with a bitter finish.

philipmeese (84) - Rowayton, Connecticut, USA - MAR 29, 2013
On tap at Mad Taco. Pours an opaque brown with a thin head that fades after a few minutes. Faint aroma of roasted coffee over hops. Flavor is carried by a full body, with a slight refreshing effervessense and hits across a broad array of salt, bitterness. This tails off nicely to an slight aftertaste of root beer. Lovely big IPA.
