Served in an 8oz tulip glass.
Poured a deep, dark black. Big tan fluffy head that dissipates surprisingly quickly to a thin tan layer! Very nice lacing down the entire glass.
Smells of hops, some grapefruit and a hint of roast malt. Very nice, and not overpowering.
Creamy hops up front, with a slightly bitter finish, some grapefruit at the end, and a hint of grapefruit aftertaste. Some carbonation in the back.
Mouth feel is creamy. With an all around hop presence.
Overall a wonderful IPA well worth a second glass.
Serving type: on-tap

12oz bottle from Stone variety pack, poured into pint glass. Enjoy by 10/02/14.
Black body with reddish hints when held up against a light. Small tan colored head, well carbonated, and good lacing.
Faint sweetness on the nose.
Taste was very nice, sweet with only a very faint bitterness. Roasted malts come out at the end. (Similar pattern to Arrogant Bastard) Mouth was around medium.
I personally do not really understand Black Ales/IPA's, seems to me there are always much better options on either the IPA or stout side. This one seems to favor the stout side. Taste seem to improve as the ale warmed up toward room temperature. Overall, an enjoyable drink.
