On tap poured in a snifter

A - Obsidian black with a 2-3 inch off-white head. Simply amazing.

S - Smells of tropical fruits, mild chocolate notes with a hint of roastiness.

T - Sensory explosion. Huge hop blast up front, which turns into a malty dry finish. Delivers on both hop bitterness and malt bitterness. Sublime stuff!

M - Sticky mouth coating feel that just seems right for a black IPA.

O - This is my favorite black IPA and one of my favorite beers. I'm so glad that this is on Stone's lineup and is available year round at a decent price!

A. Pitch black. Small head and minimal lacing.

S. Smell is very hoppy. Enough said.

T. Extremely hoppy. But is very tasty.

M. Not too thick of a beer. But nice bodied beer.

O. The beer is strong and hoppy. Taste great though. Try it if you get your hands on it.
