Appearance - Pours dark; near black with cola brown edging. Head is a khaki color and fluffs up to 2 fingers thick, showing excellent retention and resulting in a thin layer of surface suds. Fair lacing with good stick.
Smell - Classic Lagunitas aroma here; ruby red grapefruit, pineapple, orange and touches of pine.
Taste - Follows the nose. Bittersweet red grapefruit qualities, with lesser notes of pineapple and orange. Fair notes of pine by mid-taste. Malts are pushed back, far back, but what's there comes across as light caramel with traces of roast. Maybe some rye? Citrus pith bitterness and spice rings in the aftertaste.
Mouthfeel - Medium in body with fair carbonation. Smooth.
Overall - Another Lagunitas release, another beer that tastes nearly identical to their core line-up. Sure, there are minor differences in each, but the dominant hop profiles are all basically the same. This beer is good, just don't expect anything innovative. In that respect, it's a disappointment.

T - Big malt, nice bitter and rye.
M - Medium body, good carb, good balance.
D - Kinda big, but a fun beer. This one should be shared.

This reveiw is based on a goblet quaffed at Rustico Ballston (VA) in June 2014. Once poured into the goblet, it appears a dark ruby color, one impervious to light. There is minimal head with few splotches of lacing along the sides. There is a subtle plum nose amidst; the palate is tickled with traces of licorice (and more plum) that are subsequentyl thrown asunder with loud blasts of brown sugar.
The balnce is effective in that ot coordinates the semi-sweet coca structure with a nice inlay of malt.There is a chalky and dry finish that requires a sip of water.
A heavy beer with a potent hop-malt-licorice ratio and an intriguing new entry to the wonderful world of the black IPA.
