On draft. One fantastic Black IPA -- there is an absolute smorgasbord of flavor going on here, with lots of roasted dark malts and a bucket-load of hops. It’s chocolatey and roasted; it’s piney and bitter; it’s a fantastically executed Black IPA. JohnnyJ (5562) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 11, 2016

Delicious skmikeg (1826) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 22, 2016
Pours black with a one finger tan head with nice lacing. Aroma is of pine, citrus, roasted malts, coffee, tropical fruits, and some herbal hop notes. Taste is similar to the aroma. Has a medium-full body with a creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, moderately bitter, long, lingering finish. Overall, an outstanding black IPA that is very drinkable for over 9 % abv. Booga (114) - Michigan, USA - MAY 13, 2016
Solid body. Good flavor. Nice hop profile. Solid beer. The high ABV is hidden well.

Pours a deep dark amber color. Aromas of big hop action, sweet malts, and more hops. Flavor has some bready maltsy tastes with nice grapefruit and floral hop taste. Block (2727) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - APR 12, 2016
A really nice black IPA. A dark pour, good aroma of malts a hops. Body is balanced and the alcohol is masked exceptionally well. Must more potent than it tastes. mbgrayson (774) - Anaconda, Montana, USA - APR 10, 2016
