4.18/5 rDev -0.9%
A - this beer is seriously dark, pitch black. If you shine a light into it you can see the unfiltered hops and malt.
S- Hops. Malt follows. Fruity and bready almost combining. Simcoe hits me especially..( brewed an all simcoe IIpa today so that may be why)
T - I have only had a few black IPA's, but this would definitely top my list if Stone would call it one. Hops straight forward with strong malt backbone, citrus, melon, coffee, and some caramel, all combining nicely.
M - very dry, gone almost as soon as you sip it, alcohol very present
O- Once again Stone has made an incredible beer. The best Black IPA I have ever had.

4.45/5 rDev +5.5%
Poured from a bomber into a duvel tulip.
Dark brown with a 2 inch tan head that recedes to an inch and is foamy. Lacing is sticky. Aroma is toasted barley, citrus, coffee, and light floral notes. Taste is of toasted barley and light bittersweet chocolate. There is a bitterness that is dark coffee mixed with grapefruit. This beer is a malt and hop bomb. Mouthfeel is medium and a slight bitterness lingers. This is only my second BIPA but I think it will be one to judge others against. Very good.

Ok, the nastiest beer I have had since Dogfish Head Indian Brown Ale. The taste is horrible. It makes me want to vomit immediately and I had to do some serious meditating to get down a few swigs. However, the bottle cap came off easily, so maybe that has something to do with it. But in my experience I noticed darker beers are not for me. This is disgusting, do not buy it!

Bomber dated 07.11.112
Pours super dark like a stout but with ruby highlights. Big khaki head. Good head retention and lacing.
Grapefruit/orange hop aroma for the most part. Slight roast and chocolate notes.
Roasty malt but the citrus hop flavors dominate. Lovely hoppy bitterness.
Medium body and carbonation.
