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

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.

3.78/5  rDev -3.1%

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.

The beer comes in a dark black color with tinges of mahogany in the light with a light brown head.

The aroma has light citrus qualities of orange and tangerine peel and oils. There’s a bit of roasted coffee quality as well as green pine and earthiness.

The flavor follows with bitterness in the front as citrus oils drive throughout. Then there’s a roasted malt and coffee that drives the beer. There’s a bit of a sweet tropical flavor of dried mango and pineapple as the finish transitions into a pine, medium herbal.

The beer is just a delicious combination of roasted malt quality and a medium body IPA with uplifting and inviting hop notes.
