Yessir, another Black IPA. I know there is a lot of animosity towards this style, but I absolutely love it. Combines my love of stouts and IPAs into one nice black, hoppy pour.
This pours brownish black with tannish head that fades nicely. Big floral hops and even bigger citrus notes. Tastes fantastic. Chocolate, roasted malts, citrus and pine and just a hint of licorice too. The body is not too heavy and this is easily a beer I could go back to for many glasses. Overall this is a up there with Hop in the Dark and comes in just after Fate Brewing’s Black IPA. If I could get more in AZ I’d be a very happy man!
Pours black with a tan head. Flavors of molasses and roasted chocolate malt gain character from a strong piney hop note that runs throughout. Medium length. hershiser2 (3819) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - DEC 23, 2017
Bottle courtesy Drake. Thanks!! Pours dark brown with a large beige head. Aroma is citrus - especially orange, pine, meaty red fruit. Flavor is meaty red fruit (it has a name but it escapes me), orange rind, pine, anise and/or licorice. Very tasty, and a better way to end the night than Jaguar Ice (which will live forever on one of my can shelves). bpreo (3011) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - DEC 10, 2017
A new glarus beer I haven’t had before! What better time that a week in Wisconsin to try it? StoutBeerReviews (274) - Kenosha, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 3, 2017

Sampled at gregwilsonstl's house. It poured a black color with a tan head. The aroma was of pine, chocolate, molasses and citrus. The taste was similar to the aroma with more pine, chocolate, molasses, citrus and hops.
It had medium carbonation with a nice bitter sweet aftertaste. Tasty.

Dark black. Malty. Chocolate. Pine. Tasted at my Plants and Animals Bottle share. jbruner (5448) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - NOV 7, 2017
Pours a hazy brownish black on tap with bubbly tan brown head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of mild piney and citrus hops with a solid roasted and chocolate malt backbone. Taste follows, nothing super assertive, but balance is solid and nothing offensive. When this was first made it was a new style, now its a little played out, but this is a decent one. randy1969 (112) - Marengo, Illinois, USA - OCT 19, 2017
Roasty malt aromas with spicy, citrus hops. Sparkling liquid with dark brown color under a sparkling tan head. Light to medium body with a bitter finish. Average carbonation. This has become my fave New Glarus brew Carlisle (865) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 15, 2017
Draft. Pours dark brown-black with thick, light tan head and substantial lacing. Floral and pine hop aroma. Bright pine hops upfront followed by some subtle chocolate malt notes.
