4.35/5  rDev +6.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a pint glass, unknown bottled date. This pours a pitch black color (blacker than most Black IPAs, close to imperial stout color), with a decent mocha colored head which leaves a nice lacing. The smells are full of hops, pine, grapefruit and dark roasted malts. The feel is medium to thick. The taste is pretty great, a nice mouthful of bitter hops followed by a nice bitter dark roasted malt and dark chocolate. An excellent stout / IPA hybrid, very nice.

4.73/5  rDev +15.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: 1/2” tan head. Decent retention, leaving nice lacing along the glass. Very dark brown body.

S: Big grapefruit & pine aroma with hints of roasted malts.

T: Wonderfully bitter, with loads of grapefruity, piney, and grassy hops (with grapefruit leading the way). There's some roasty, caramel, & dark malt underneath, but this one is all about the hops... and that's just fine with me.

M: Medium+ body with fine carbonation. Somewhat smooth with the hop bitterness lasting throughout the finish and beyond.

O: Alcohol well hidden. Tremendously drinkable. Right there with SSR & Victory Yakima – would love to do a blind tasting. I could go on, but to be honest I should just delete the whole review & say “Just *&$%ing outstanding.” God bless you, Eric Marshall.

Serving type: on-tap

4.24/5  rDev +3.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Pours a dark brown, almost black with a foamy white head that dissipates reasonably soon. Nose is of sweet, floral pine. The pine carries through to taste, along with chocolate, caramel, citrus and hops. The bitterness hangs around a bit. Medium mouth with a bit of carbonation. This is a nice black IPA. I've been searching for it a while, and it did not disappoint.

4.4/5  rDev +7.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

A -wouldn't quite call this black, but a deep brown with thick tan head

S - very sweet with caramel and chocolate

T - a bit of chocolate from the aroma, but dominated but coffee and spices. I even taste some grapes

M- solid with heavy aftertaste. I feel like i need to chew it

O - fairly heavy and comes in a 22 ounce bottle, not something i would drink often. Although it was perfect for a tailgate party. The flavor was very good and complex, would definitely buy again for as special occasion.
