Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a shaker pint glass. Enjoy by 09/03/14

A- Pours a dark roast coffee, some light is coming through, probably the lightest black IPA I've had. Head has a slight brown tint to it.

S- Huge hops, it's got that smell you get from opening a bag of hops, got that sort of Fruit Loops type of aroma to it, must be dry hopped heavily. Dankness, citrus, tropical notes of passion fruit and pineapple.

T- Again huge hop flavors of dank pine, grapefruit, pineapple, passion fruit, a lingering bitterness that is higher than in other black IPAs such as NightTime. Not really getting a lot if any roasted flavors, which is good but it seems like if your gonna make a black IPA you'd want the roasts to show up at some point. I think NightTime has a better roast presence.

M- Medium, similar to most IPAs.

O- I've passed over this beer for far too long and I will do it no more. The aroma on this beer is huge but it is slightly more bitter than I would like but that's nitpicking. For awhile I thought this beer was just a German style black ale but boy was I wrong. Also they could amp up the roast presence ever so slightly and it would probably be the best black IPA out there. But I really dig the hop profile on this one, it might be coincidence that I find NightTime to have a very similar hop profile, or maybe not.
