4.2/5  rDev +1.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

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!

4.43/5  rDev +7.5%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 220z bottle into a Sierra Nevada tulip glass. Almost completely black with a hint of brown; no haze. Two inch thick tan head that that dissipated quickly. Moderate lacing down the glass
Sweet dark chocolate nose with a little black licorice
Malty sweetness up front, finishing with a substantial amount of bitterness at the end. Very well balanced. Tasting the dark chocolate and black licorice I got on the nose, with a hint of coffee and caramel.
Medium carbonation that finishes into a creamy mouthfeel. Again, very well balanced

I really enjoyed this beer! An excellent representation of an 'American Black Ale', in my opinion. Could also be classified as a 'Black IPA', I believe, (not too sure of the difference anyway).
