Wow, the abv is masked greatly in this brew.
Not big on cans but, great poured in glass. Westmeister (2129) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 18, 2013
Can. Pours semi cloudy with a nice white head great initial lacing. Smell is Sweet malts nice citrus pop, grapefruit, resinous. Big citrus and resinous hops in the taste with sweet malts. Tilted more towards the hop side than malts though. Booze is slightly known. Quite nice. mR_fr0g (12067) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2013

Black Country Beano. Outbound train tasting! Thanks to Ian. Light haze on this gold beer, little white head. Palate is light and slight soft, semi dry. Light dry creamy malt. Bitter pine hops. Dash of hop spice. Nice touch of grapefruit citrus. Finishes semi dry with a medium bitter linger. Nice!
Can on the Black Country Train Tasting Part I. The pour’s deep gold with a small head. The nose is strong resinous pine. Pineapple, mango. Cake batter. The taste is somewhat boozy, slick. More pineapple. Plenty of pinecone. Strong bitterness on the finish. Full body, drinks the full ABV. Overall, OK.

Bottle. Unfiltered ipa with medium foam appearance. Smells really fresh hops. Medium mouthfeel and carbonation. Nice caramel, bitter, hop finish. Some alcohol at the very end. Overall: starts great with nice hop aroma, but a little to boozy and bitter in the very end. Fritz123 (1535) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - JUL 7, 2013
Wow. An amazing beer from the marketing, can and of course product. Purchased at Total Wine in Boca Raton, FL. Tulip at home. Pours a hazy orange-light brown with a thin head. Good lacing. The aroma hits you hard with pine, citrus and earth smells. It smells like...well hop resin. The first taste made my taste buds shutter. It is powerful hops, no doubt. Pine, citrus, freshness, balanced well by the malts. Smooth, medium body with a bitter finish. It masked the ABV well. I didn’t realize it was in the 9% range until I read the description later. Very good beer. beerandbeyond (708) - ISRAEL - JUL 7, 2013
12oz can poured into a tumbler.
Cloudy light amber with a decent off white head.
Pure piney nose, with some bitter citrus peels and tropical notes.
Juicy hop flavors, with enough maltiness, peels and high bitterness.
Full bodied, flavorful, chewy, and quite satisfying. RichTheVillan (7835) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2013
