This poured more like a stout than any IPA, black or otherwise, that I have ever seen. The color was deep and dark brown with only the tiniest of light piercing the lower edges of the glass. The head was a thick froth with average retention and considerable lacing.
The aromas are very fruity with oranges, tangerines and mango. There is some piney hop character in the end with an almost waxy scent.
The flavor is tremendous as it is dominated by tropical fruits. Reminiscent of Kool-Aid the fruitiness is very apparent with a some orange and tangerines near the end. The more floral hop character is hidden and the malty char was never found.
This drinks exceptionally smooth with little alcohol presence and a very late bitter astringency.
I don't have a lot of experience in Black IPA's but of what I've had this is the best.
Serving type: on-tap
