Bomber poured into a snifter.

A: Dark black with almost no light penetration with three fingers of an off white head. Tiny bubbles emerge and dance up the side of the glass. Spectacular lacing.

S: Smells like a spicy and tropical IPA to me!

T: Big on the spicy malt notes with a bit of hop bitterness. Not a lot of tropical flavors that the nose had. Good, but sort of weird.

M: Tingly spiciness with a little bit of heat. Medium carbonation.

O: This was my first black IPA, and I can't say I'm a fan. Not bad, just not what I'm in the mood for on a summer night. The nose on this is really awesome and it looks beautiful. Sadly it goes downhill after that. Not much downhill, but still enough to not be my cup of tea.

Never been a huge fan of black IPAs. However, the rye definitely smooths out the astringency of the dark malt in wookey and makes this a *gasp* refreshing *gasp* beer. Would even pop one on a hot summer day. Two thumbs upwards.
- had on tap at Big Sur Taphouse in Big Sur, CA
