look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

This pours a thick brown that is practically black except when examined under a penetrating light That will only reveal the true color but is still impenetrable. The head is alight tan that is thick and leaves a very full lacing down the glass.

The nose is a spicy malt wit the hops being nicely dominant and pleasantly balanced with the smokiness, chocolate and coffee notes that result from the rich malt.

The taste is a very strong blending of hops that is very bitter riding on a semi-sweet to dry malt that has the similar notes of chocolate, coffee and some hints of molasses and spice with a sharp hop bite up front that fades to a pleasant hop finish.

The mouthfeel is just right for this brew with it being full and flavorful but not too heavy.

Overall, this is a very drinkable beer and is very enjoyable. I highly recommend this one.

A good drinking draft and spot on black IPA solid offering. Very good, another solid Firestone Walker offering. Black bodied, assertive carbonation. Average mouthfeel. Solid hops, solid roast,anise. Rye spice adds some edge. Roast aroma. Significant grapefruit.

Serving type: on-tap

Appearance is a very dark brown, almost black, unfiltered, nice lacing. Aroma is hops, grapefruit, pine, a bit of caramel, very nice. Flavor is okey, piney, dark roasted malt, a bit of coffee and caramel. I feel like I'm in the lumber yard and inhaling deeply with my mouth open. Mouthfeel is medium thick, not quite chewy. Overall the is an outstanding black IPA, a style I am not familiar with.
