I've had this delight many times both on tap and bottle in various glasses. I should preface by stating I'm a huge fan of stone in general (as are many) and this is one of my favorites from them.
Pours almost jet black with two wonderful fingers of khaki colored head-leaves significant lacing. Pine and grapefruit hop aroma as well as flavor. Near perfect use of hops in my opinion-not too much of any one flavor. Coats my entire mouth and just the right carbonation. The almost 9% abv is hidden well-could get in trouble quick slammin it back.
One I've gotten more times than I can count-so glad its here to stay in my area. I love this beer!

Pours a nearly opaque brown black, almost 1 inch head that falls to about 1/4" and lasts. Lots of lacing.
Smells of sweet roasted malts with a hint of hops.
Tastes of dark malty sweetness up front, citrus hops come in and there is a hint of the alcohol at the finish.
Medium body and mild carbonation makes this almost creamy.
Overall, great black IPA, I'm not a huge fan of the style, but this one is tasty.
