Poured into a snifter from a bomber. Review from 4/14/14.

Color is black with a thin tan head. Lots of lacing.
Aroma is grassy hops with caramel sweetness.
Flavor is intense piney hops on the palate that mellows to allow some deep roasted coffee to show through. Finish is mildly bitter with a malty aftertaste.
Medium to full body with moderate carbonation. Smooth mouthfeel.

Overall, an excellent example of this style of beer. Definitely in the top tier.

If you think you would like to try a variety of Black IPAs, don't try this one first... it will ruin the genre because you won't find another like it. One of the most enjoyable beers I've ever had.
