Oh Sierra you have done it again! Another one I can't breakdown in a review because I absolutely love this offering. Black as pitch with a nice tan brown head, which leaves a great lace. Dark roasted chocolate malty goodness, with a wonderful citrusy finish. Perfect carbonation, easy and flavorful to drink, and slightly reminiscent of my favorite beer ever, Hop Rod Rye. I hope this becomes an everyday selection, as this beer ranks up there with Sierra Nevada's best.

It has been tried before by others but I've never had a black ipa that I would seek out again. This is the exception. Love the combo. Classic sn on the hoop character. I think this is where the other's miss. It blends ask nicely with the malt. Smooth. Finished one and wanted a second. Rare in my book

This is a really good Black IPA that is reminiscent of Hop in the Dark.

Tons of hops up front with a smooth roasty flavor on the back end. I love this style and feel that is this a great example.

-Nose is pure IPA
-Low carbonation with a light tan head
-Tons of flavor: Hops and malty goodness to round it out.

Hope Sierra Nevada makes it a regular offering.
