fluffy (2472) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - SEP 29, 2016
not my kinda thing, but i could see how someone who loves both hops and malty backbone would like it.

3.2
SHIG (4962) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - APR 19, 2016
Draft: Poured a black with tan colored head. Aroma is strong rugged hops. Taste hops stinging astringent and dark malt backbone.

3.2
DocJitsu (1991) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - JUL 30, 2015
Pours a dark red-brown with a nice, smooth, tan head. Competing dark malt and hoppy nose. The flavors are disappointing given the nose. Fainter dark roast, a little coffee and a honeydew melon.

3.8
hopscotch (11159) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 16, 2014
Draft... Pours deeply black with a mid-sized, creamy, off-white head. Good retention. Holding my glass up to the strong Florida sunshine reveals nothing more. It’s just black. There are singed malts and a modest measure of lupulin in the nose. Too restrained, but at least I’m not picking up the dank, bong water-like notes normally attached to this style of beer like a conjoined twin. Full-bodied with a super creamy mouthfeel and modest carbonation. The flavor offers burnt malts, pine resin and loads of grapefruit rind. Finishes burnt and fairly bitter. This is really good. It’s a style I normally detest.

burg326 (5488) - Florida, USA - JUN 30, 2014
Poured a brown almost black color with aromas of citrus and coffee. Flavors match the aromas a solid black ipa and enjoyable.

AndyW68 (1553) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Near black pour with light tan head. Aroma is roast malt. Taste is a bitter version of the nose.

3.7
tricyclist (1125) - Florida, USA - MAY 21, 2014
As far as black ipa’s go, it’s pretty decent. It’s fully roasted with a zesty nose. The pour is deep and dark with a full khaki head. Tastes of roasted coffee and medi bitter hops, yet still refreshing.

3.4
Ferris (15901) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 5, 2014
Draft - Roasted malts with a hoppy bite. Jet black with a rich beige head. Chocolate and a hoppy bitterness with a long hoppy bitter finish. Not bad, but a bit too much roast for me.

3.4
gnoff (10707) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - JAN 21, 2014
Sampled draught as part of a flight at the brewpub on January 19, 2014.
Very dark brown to black color, light brown head. Fresh, hoppy, malty, bitter taste. Roasted aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel, medium high bitterness. Roasted scent.

3.9
GT (10000) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 29, 2013
Tap at Rapp. Pours a clear deep red with nice whiter foam. Nose is herbal, tar, pine, hazelnut coffee, dense. Taste is hazelnut, pine, walnut, brazil nut. More of a well hopped hazelnut brown ale, though the pine needle content could make this pass for Black IPA. Impressed.
