The best black IPA i've had. Consistently amazing, and my favorite from Rock Art.

I gotta say, I like this beer WAY more than I thought I might. The big 10% ABV is masked beautifully and the hops come through very well without leaving too much bitterness. Overall this is such a smooth BDIPA. Only problem with this beer is that the brewing period is too short.

22oz bottle purchased as a single from somewhere in the Middlebury/Burlington area.

Poured into an imperial pint glass, formed a 1" dark tan head over the barely translucent dark reddish brown brew. Head collapses slowly, settling at a strong 1/2" and holding, with leggy lasting lace. Aroma is miminal.

Taste has a peek of sweet to start, an undercurrent of slightly acrid bitterness from stem to stern, a shot of dark fruit in the middle, and a cream yet more bitter close. Mouthfeel is pretty smooth, and drinkability is good. Never would have guessed this brew is 10%abv.
