look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

12 oz bottle purchased at the brewery.
OG 1.070 FG 1.010 IBUs 100 ABV 8.0%

Pour looks like usee motor oil but with more clarity and, of course, a proper size tan head, The head has limited retention but leaves thick lacing on the glass.
Pronounced hop aroma, with some citrus but mostly pine/spruce.
The taste is similar, except that the dark roasted malts come out, and there's enough sweet malt to partially tame the bitter hops.
Feel: Full bodied with medium carbonation.

O: a big beer suitable for those who like both rich, dark roasted malts, and IPA-level hops. (582 characters)

not familiar with Mother Road Brewery before tonight, even though it's in Flagstaff, AZ - this was served as part of a tasting flight at Whole Foods in a 4 oz. tasting glass...

tonight, I am compaing it with some other IPA's on tap at Whole Foods: Four Peaks Hop Knot IPA, Ballast Point Sculpin IPA, Dragoon IPA, and the standard for double IPA's Dogfish Head 90. I will also pour a Stone IPA from a bottle before the evening is over...

color and appearance are dark coffee color with a head that settles down to about a thin film, more like a stout than an IPA, hard to believe this is a 100 IBU brew

smell is more of toasted malt than hops and the taste is similar, malt and hops do not overwhelm each other, but overall, very nice to taste and smell

In my search for the perfect IPA, this one is good, but I can't really consider it an IPA (846 characters)

12 ounce bottle poured into a snifter.

A big mocha, dark khaki head is produced from the pour and it lingers well leaving streaks of lace in its wake. The body pours a roasted brown almost black but sits in the glass looking pitch black. 4.25

Piney and sweet floral hop aroma of the potent kind. Dark roasted malts lurk underneath but they're pretty toned down compared to the expressive hops. 4

Piney flavors to begin and then a light citrus mid-palate that gives way to roasted malt and some chocolatey notes. 4

Mostly smooth and creamy, but there's medium bitterness mid-palate, a touch of piney hop spice and a dry finish. 4

Very enjoyable to drink, smooth and mellow on the booze despite the 8% ABV. Good stuff. (721 characters)

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on July 5, 2014. Received in trade with a non-BA member.

The pour is black as night with a huge fluffy, tan head. Outstanding to look at.

The aroma is much more subtle than I might have imagined but it is lovely with its dark roasted malt character and mild hop character.

The body is definitely in the medium range with a kind of astringency to report.

The taste has a fine malt sweetness at first and the hops are more earthy and downplayed, considering it is a Black IPA. But the subtlety is what makes this interesting and drinkable. (577 characters)
