Bottle tasting at Craft Clerkenwell. Thanks to Black IPA hound Colin. Clear deep red beer with a small pale tan head. Light dry palate, softish. Very light touch of dark malts. Mellow red berry fruits. Hops are pretty bitter and only have a light touch of that signature (but not cumpulsorary) black ipa pine. Dry finish with a stong bitter linger.

Leighton (21257) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2013
Bottle shared at CBC Clerkenwell in London - thanks to Colin, my black IPA brother. Pours clear brown with a big tan head. Lightly aged burnt pine and toasted malts in the nose, some herbs, too. Light to medium sweet flavor with dirty pine, dry orange, burnt toast, light dusty cocoa. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Modest dry roast finish with more dusty cocoa and toasted pine. OK, but the bottle doesn’t seem super fresh.

Theydon_Bois (19513) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2013
Bottle split at CBC, 05/12/13, sourced at Wegmans Downington PA. Very dark mahogony brown with reddish hues and a big ole bubbly beige head. Nose is dank citric hops - a little skunky, light pine, floral notes, malt. Taste comprises dank hops, bitter grapefruit, tropical fruit medley, pine bite and light roast. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, dank grassy hop bitterness in the finish. Respectable enough CDA.

bhensonb (15201) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 26, 2011
Bomber from Half Time. Pours very black with a slight creamy white/beige head. Roasted dark malt with evergreen aspects for aroma. Med+ body. Flavor is smooth dark roast malt with a good dose of fruit/resin hop. I’d say grapefruit above pine, but this is a mixed flavor situation and I’m having trouble separating components. And why try. It’s nicely bitter, full of malt flavor, and incredibly delicious.

Bomber poured a clear reddish brown with a lasting tan head. Aromas of roastiness, earthiness, skunk bud, grapefruit and pine. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of roastines, earthiness, light grapefruit and a hint of pine with a smooth moderatly bitter lingering roasty finish.
