3.45/5 rDev -20.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3
A - Poured from a growler into a snifter. About a finger of tan head. Very dark, not much light coming through. Nearly black in color. Thick lacing that sticks around.
S - Hops really stand out. Slight malty notes also present.
T - Malty up front with hops coming through in the middle and finish. Has two levels of hop flavor at each.
M - Smooth and easy drinking with a slight tingle in the throat at the end.
O - Easy drinking for a beer of this gravity but i prefer a little less "in your face" hoppiness

Stone Brew Co.
**Double dry hopped with Apollo and Target hops**
Appears black as night; a sticky chocolate milk colored head slowly grows to over an inch and stays unmoving for quite some time. Splotches and patches of sticky lacing coat the glass. A head turner!
Smells like fresh-squeezed grapefruit juice along with roasted and chocolate malt. Smells divine.
Some initial hop bitterness with a pungent punch of grapefruit and floral hops. An always present underlying chocolate and roasted malt presence.
Medium bodied and highly carbonated. Very little alcohol presence.
A terrific black IPA, though I think the 15th Anniversary is better.

On cask at Blanc Burgers and Bottles.
Presented in a 12 oz sniffer. This beer pours a cola-esque brown with a massive 3 inch head that leaves tons of lacing down the sides of the glass. It has a very viscous look to it but it doesn't come off in the mouthfeel. The one thing that bothers me is that it really doesn't look like cask beer. The aroma is very hoppy. No shit right. Lots of citrus. Orange peel and ruby grapefruit. The flavor is also very hoppy also. Up front hits big citrus pith. Orange and grapefruit. Underlying is a nice pine. The mouthfeel is lacking. Most cask beer has a nice creaminess to it. This doesn't. Finishes dry, low carbonation. Overall its good but I think dry hopping this beer negates a lot of the positive characteristics of the bottle. To me, this is why Stone's motto of "Throw more hops at it, its just going to taste better" is off. Instead of being a curious and complex brew, its just hoppy.

On tap at 3f as a guest tap
A-pitch black with a great amount of tan head. What a beauty
S-nice amount of fruitiness coming off of the beer into my nose.
T-follows the nose. Fruity hops that stick in the back of your throat. Very smooth. Its good. But better than others?
M-medium body and smooth with a great hop bite
O- wish I had the normal to compare to but this is a Damn fine beer
Serving type: on-tap
