Decided to purchase wondering what the hell a black iPa is months back and trusting stones judgment. Pre beer advocate. First opened. Hmm smells like a porter /stout, but what's that end note!?! I'm gonna go for a sip...... WOW!! this is delicious!! Starts off like a porter stout ends like an iPa. I can't explain it. I've actually looked at the low reviews on this one AND THEY EXIST! I know everyone's taste differs but I feel like this is one of the greatest beers ever. If I had enough to spend $12 on a couple 4 packs a week I would, but rather keep it special and get every so often. Hands down best 12oz bottled beer so far in my journey though craft beer. If you like IPAS and don't mind porters /stouts try this. Just make sure you get it fresh and check the dates! Although it is understandable living on opposite coast these days.. Thank you Stone! Please don't stop brewing this. Ever. Cheers, Kevin.

A: Poured out a very, very dark copper that was almost black. Two fingers of khaki head.

S: Vibrant citrus with a dark malt backbone.

T: Grapefruit and orange. Subtle but present dark malt. Floral and earthy hops with a nice bitter bite.

M: Medium and slightly creamy body. Medium carb.

O: Sometimes black IPAs just don't jive with me because the balance just seems to be off. This one worked very well. Just a really good mix of IPA and dark malt characteristics.

MUCH better on tap than in the bottle. In the bottle -- for me -- it had a strong aroma of urine that really lessened the drinking experience. However, on tap, this aroma was not present, making it a very nice beer ... ON TAP.
