Great looking Black Ale, one of the best Black IPA's I have ever had. Stone had a tap takeover at one of the local bars and this was my favorite of the 6 featured beers. It has fantastic hoppy notes with a bitter/malty finish. High alcohol content does not pull through in the flavor. I would love to enjoy this every day!

Poured into a Shiner Bohemian Black Lager pint and this brew poured up a midnight brown color with a 1 finger light tan head with nice heavy lacing clinging to the glass.

The aroma is of dark malts and heavy American hops.

The taste is heavy of the roasted malts, with a nice dose of bittering hops that are not overpowering, but cut through the malt sweetness perfectly. A nice balance of malt and hops, neither one dominating the other.

At 8.7% abv., the alcohol is well hidden both in the mouth and in the throat by this well balanced ale.

This is a great cold weather sipper to me. It might be a great brew any other time of the year, but for me, now; it is the 1st week of December.

I'll give this left coast brew a hard fought but well deserved A !

ok. given my tastes, not really notable. I'm looking for a replacement for harpoon ipa, and this was not significantly better.

perhaps a bit too hoppy for my tastes. but others really seem to enjoy this beer.

For my tastes, Racer 5 is my standard for IPA's

A --- Deep red with almost an inch of head

S --- Hop forward with a nice layer of malts in the background. Maybe a little sugar or something sweet.

T --- Malty, raisins, figs and yeast

M --- Medium-to-full body, good carbination, creamy. Almost porter like

O --- This is a solid beer! Very interesting and worth drinking again and again. Another solid effort from Stone!
