4.83/5  rDev +21.1%

A - Dark dark dirty motor oil, Slight brown. Great head and some lace.

S - Deep citrus hops, and some stout/malts back there.

T - Deep hops, bitter with some nice stout like coco malts back in there somewhere, pretty complex!

M - Great carbonation, kinda more on the larger side of carbonation, nice aftertaste not overbearing but definitely there.

D - Drinks great for a black IPA, this is one unusual but really cool beer, very complex and different but the best of both worlds! Easy drinker for a hop head, but you gotta like stout too! I like this one, will get again!

Another tick generously shared by Bobby.

A: The pour is a dark mahogany sort of color with a huge tan head that has excellent retention.

S: A really nice nose to this beer consisting primarily of grapefruit with a nice lemon zest thing going on as well. There's quite a bit of floral hop aroma to it and overall it's quite perfumey. Some roast is there, but not as much as usual for a Black IPA.

T: Not as impressive flavor-wise, but still good. It's very bitter with a lot of pine and bitter grapefruit peel. There's a slight astringency as well as some grass hop notes.

M: The body and carbonation are both medium.

D: I've never been terribly impressed by this brewery, but this was really quite good. I would even drink this again.

Bomber shared by torino

A: poured a dark brown in color with maroon highlights that had a thin bubbly head and left a little lacing sticking to the glass.

S: upfront the hops were popping out with citrusy, pine, and sweet malts notes but had roasty character and faint booze.

T: the hops were also pretty much dominating the overall taste but had caramel, chocolate, pine accents and a touch of roastiness with sweetness added from the malts.

M: the brew was light ti medium in body with a moderate amount of carbonation which had a piney, hoppy, sweet, and mild roasty finish.

D: I thought it drank good and was a solid black IPA. Oh.... excuse me, american black ale.
