I was probably most impressed with this of all the beers I tried on my visit to the pub. Not because it was the best but because it was the best of what I hadn't already had from Founders. This was a nice tasting Black ipa, I think that this will be a style we see a lot more of from many craft brewers and I welcome it. Nice roasty, toasted hop, and some malt flavor. A little bit of everything and I like it all.

On tap at the brewpub. Really liked this wheaty black IPA. Imperial style head on very dark body. Substantive alcohol. More IPA than roast, and above average fuller mouthfeel. A good one though a sipper, an American strong ale plus the wheat and roast.

AgentZero said it best: "My love for you is like a truck, BERSERKER!" The next line might be better, though.
On tap at Founders last weekend. Served in a pint glass.
Pours a very dark brown, bordering on black. Nice off-white head and some good lacing. The nose starts off with a touch of roast along with some light pine hops and a bit of citrus. Slightly earthy. Flavor is the same components plus a bit of wheat character. Interesting. Light-medium body with a dry finish. Good, but not the best hoppy brew I've had from Founders.

A- Dark brown.borderline black beer. White head. Above average lacing and head retention.
S- Floral smelling with a hint of roasted malts.
T- Roasty up front, but finishes with floral hops. Chocolate notes. Very unique...the best of both worlds. Drinks a tad bit boozier than 7.1%abv.
M- Full mouthfeel. Creamy but good carbonation. Held up well a week in the growler.
D/O- I really liked this one. Roasty characteristics but with *plenty* of hop presence. I could see this being a staple if bottled (always available). Thanks Kirk!

My love for you is like a truck, BERSERKER!
Best movie-reference beer name ever.
A - Dark brown beer with a beige head that left some random spots on the sides.
S - Smells like a solid black IPA, with citrus and floral hops, some crystalized malt. The usual chocolate and earth you get from one of these types of beers.
T - Some roast and chocolate, with some herbal bitterness on the end. There is a bit of citrus hops in there, but the nose is a little better.
M - Medium bodied, fairly active carbonation, finishes fairly dry.
O - Nice beer. It's a solid black IPA, and that scores some points there as a lot of them are just plain misses. Could drink and enjoy this again. Also have a sudden desire to go watch "Clerks."
Would you like some making fuck, BERSERKER!

Growler thanks to Alex!
A - Pours black, off-white colored head, spotty lace, nice collar.
S - Very piney, nice roasted malts, floral.
T - Nice mix of roasted malts and bitter/floral hops. Neither overpowering the other...actually complimenting.
M - Light, crisp and refreshing, good carbonation, creamy finish.
O - Another enjoyable beer from Founders. Glad I was able to try this one. The malts and hops are excellent with one another here. I have to be in the mood for this style, but otherwise, I'd have again.

This was described as a Black Wheat IPA. Served in a pint glass at Founders. I dig the Clerks references in the name.
A - Dark brown body, with molasses colored highlights when held to the light. Served with a finger of dark tan foam that settles to a partial cap and collar, leaving glass-coating lace.
S - Smell is quite nice, with citrus and floral hops, a touch of herb, and some pleasant roasted and chocolate malts.
T - Taste is solid, but not quite as impressive as the aroma. Less overt hop flavor and more toasted grains and baker's chocolate. Some moderate-to-high bitterness from the roasted malts and hops rounds things out. Could use a bit more mid-palate flavor.
M - Seemed a touch thin for 7.1%, but otherwise quite nice. Smooth medium body, lower carbonation, and a nice dry finish with plenty of residual hop oils and resinous character.
D - Very easy to drink. I don't get much in the way of wheat, but thankfully this beer avoids being overly astringent and charry like some other Black IPAs. Split a glass with my wife, and purchased a growler to share with the Chicago crowd. Worth trying if you're in Grand Rapids.
