I really am not a fan of black IPA's but this is one of the best it seems. The appearance was nice being very dark brown and a tan head that lasts a bit. The smell is full of hops but not much else it would seem. The taste though was very different. Starting out with a lot of floral notes in the beginning gave way to a semi sweet malt finish that I found very refreshing. Would highly recommend.

Amazing, must try beer. Best black IPA ever.

A: The head capped the beer and lasted for an hour as I let it come to cellar temp.
Bold, black body, creamy thick head like a stout.

S: Hops forward, but crazy original salt & sweet malts in the background. Prominent pine, charcoal, summer hay, herbs.

T: Earthier, but follows the smell profile. Deeply complex. Kind of like a strong ale or Belgian in the sweet malt backbone, but with more charcoal and chalk.

MF: Good body, then chalk-like crispness, dry finish.

Amazing beer, starts more amazing than it finishes. Compares well with Arrogant Bastard, which stands as an all-time fave.
