This Black IPA is one of the better I have tried.

It pours out a pitch black with a 1 finger off-white head.

It smells strongly of roasted malt and hints of chocolate.

Taste wise is something like a hopped up porter. There is a very slight hint of smoke, lots of roasted malt, chocolate, grassy hops and a hint of citrus.

This finishes very crisp, slightly creamy and bitter.

Very balanced and enjoyable. Easy to drink a few.
