12 FL. OZ. bottle
Served in a perfect pint glass

A - It pours dark brown with dark amber highlights. It is topped with two to three inches of mocha head.

S - I notice some resin-y hops right off the bat. Then I notice a tea smell. The roasted malt comes out as it warms.

T - As with the smell, I notice the hops at first, and then the roasted malt flavors open up as it warms. It is a nice balance of hops and roasted characteristics.

M - It is leaning pretty hard towards full.

O - This is a pretty good black IPA. I especially like the 9.2% ABV.

Poured from bottle into dollar store tulip glass!

A- Dark brownish red body with a nice fluffy tan head. Really cool package design and bottle art. Nice use of colors!

S- Smelled of citrusy hops and roasted malts.

T- Bitter hops up front, a little bit of grapefruit, roasted malts, earthiness. Not sure if there is any "hemp seeds" in the flavor. But then again, I have never tasted hemp seeds, so I wouldn't know it if there were...

M- Mouthfeel was spot on for an imperial IPA, but I think it was a little smoother due to the roasted malts.

O- Overall this was a good DIPA. It was interesting with the earthy aroma and flavor. It was a little bitter for my preference. I wouldn't buy again, but I would drink it again!

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A - Solid black/red body with dense caramel head. No difficulty bring the head to three fingers, and really nice lacing.

S - Deep bready malts and slight wiff of citrus.

T - Pine, floral, and slightly citrus hops rush in followed by a wave of deep sugary malts, molasses and dank earth. Good bite of alcohol rides out at towards the end.

M - Medium/full body with moderate carbonation. So creamy and smooth and in no way sticky, washing away clean.

O - This is great black ipa. It has a solid bite of hops, not overly sweet malt base, and best of all a huge ABV. Definitely a great beer for the fall season.
