Pours opaque dark chocolate brown with a thick and persistent tan head. Aroma delivers tempting roast malt, woody hop and molasses tones. Flavor drags evergreen hops, roasted malt, smoky, molasses, and subtle citrus notes across the tongue. This is my favorite beer style, and this is a good one. Firm body features lively fizz and a hoppy, smoky finish. Get to the bayside! onceblind (11099) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 10, 2016
Deep heavy brown, basically black, with a thin foamy beige head. Big earthy sweet resiny dank hop nose that’s full of orange zest, floral hops and a sticky black malt sweetness. Smooth flavor profile that’s gently roasty and black malty with a good balance of floral and orange zesty hops. Really smooth and surprisingly balanced. Lovely floral earthy and fresh hop flavors without a lot of bitterness and no acrid tones from the black malt. bhensonb (16120) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 7, 2016
Can from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours dark brown with a near tan head. Aroma seems citrus over dark malt. Med + body (lots of carbonation). Flavor is less than dry; dark malt; citrus and/or pine hop. This seems much smoother than many of the style. It is fairly/moderately/quite ? bitter. Hard to decide. It’s really good stuff. And black IPAs aren’t one of my favorite styles. This might change that. Ibrew2or3 (8989) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 2, 2016
12oz can pours with a dark mahogany colored body that supports a tall tan head. The aroma offers up lightly dark roasted malts, a flash of sweet malts and then some spicy and earthy hops. The taste delivers dark roasted malts, bitter chocolate, earthy bitter hoppiness, and then a mild sweet maltiness. Another sip brings about bitter black licorice and dark roasted coffee. Pretty nice but comes across roasty and bitter but actually lacking some in hops. smith4498 (3723) - Winter Springs, Florida, USA - SEP 30, 2016
Pours clear dark brown color with tan head. Aromas of roasted malt and pine. Roasty and piney flavors with a hint of citrus. Medium body with average carbonation and a slightly creamy mouthfeel.
