4.2/5 rDev +1.9%
On tap at Mad Mex
Appearance: Dark brown with a mahogany tent when put up to the light. One finger tan head
Smell: A bouquet of fruity hops with almost no dark malts to speak of. Would not have guessed this was a black ipa by the nose. Great aromas nonetheless
Taste: Tropical hops upfront that fades into a nice balance of light roasted malts
Mouthfeel: Medium body; Smooth with slight bitterness. But the carbonation is a bit too prickly
Overall: I've had a few black ipas in my day, and this is probably my favorite so far. Great nose and good balance between hops and dark malts in the flavor. I rarely say anything negative about Lagunitas, and this is very much the same. The only gripe I have is that it's too carbonated, but that's a small one. Great brew and highly recommended for the style. Cheers!

A: [3.00] Dark color (like Coke when poured). Also pours a head similar to Coke. Large bubbles in the 2+ finger head. The head is khaki colored. The head recedes slowly leaving patchy lacing. The bottle has a born on date (Julian date = May 14)
S: [3.75] Really nice smell. Has the smell of fruits. I want to say tropical fruits but my eyes say dark fruits and my nose says tropical fruits.
T: [3.75] Slightly bitter on the front. Moves through some tropical flavors and sweetness and finishes with a sweet coffee taste.
M: [3.25] Slightly dry and tight. There is no biting in the carbonation it is the right level.
O: [3.50] This is a 8.2% beer but there is no taste or sense of alcohol. The 65 IBUs gives a little bitter on the tip of the tongue - but doesn't make the beer harsh. The smell and taste are nice. This is not just a dark colored IPA. There are some stout-esque characters on the finish like the hint of sweet coffee.

Pours into an imperial pint glass a deep cola color with a half finger beige head that leaves a nice full ring of lace as it settles into a frothy mass.Some pine resin and earthiness in the nose,not much sweetness to be had.Pretty dry on the palate with mild roast and earthy with some pine and grapefruit hops lingering in the finish,I like the dryness.A good example of the style not uber hopped but hopped enough.Iam still warming up to the style,I like robust porters and I love IPA's but still have not found an ABA that I go crazy for ...yet.

Heavy 4 finger-head. Dark nearly pitch black. Khaki head. Smells fresh fruit, chocolate and plum. Taste is nice, effervescent pine, apricot, milk chocolate, slightly dry finish. Medium body. Overall, fresh this one will go down smooth. Pair with duck burger, ostrich burger, or nut-crusted/herb-crusted goat cheese.

3.95/5 rDev -4.1%
Reasonably priced (as usual) Lagunitas bomber. No freshness info that I can find.
Pours very dark brown, medium khaki moderate head, small bubble film and respectable fine mini fields of stick.
Roasted malt nose with some citric hops also present.
Orange hop notes/chocolate/ dark caramel malt sums this one up for me.
Tasty. Go get some. I think this one would go well with a nice steak or with a chocolate dessert.
