Pours a pitch black color that's actually a little thinner looking than I am used to. It has a big 3 finger brown head that lingers for a bit before lacing the hell out of my snifter. First smell is fairly hoppy. PIne notes mostly. There are some muted roasty notes in the background. It's pretty muted. First sip is quite similar to the nose. Piney hops. Roasted malt. Some subtle coffee notes in the background. A little char bitterness finished the brew off. There is a pretty clean finish with a low bitterness. It's very drinkable and the alcohol is hidden well. Not one I'd seek out again but that's moreso the fact I don't love the style.

Bang! Love it! Black IPA. Drinks like a stout. Piney hops with roasted malts? Smooth with a hidden bite back that is darn near unnoticeable. Almost chewy if an IPA could be called chewy. Subtle hints of citrus fruit. 12 oz bottle.
