look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

22 oz into tulip pint
A- Coca-cola color on the pour with a thick creamy light tan head that doesn't want to go anywhere-I'm excited
S- Chocolate Chip Power Bar, toasted malt with a sweet hoppy rye backbone
T- Oohh. Aahh. Thats good. It's unexpectedly refreshing. Lighter than I thought it would be. Not lighter as in lacking flavor, just in body. Very unique. Brownie points for being something different. It just tastes like someone brewed exactly what they wanted to. Very mellowed hops
M- IPA mouthfeel; refreshing, big bubble, light (enough) bodied, but the roastey toasty-ness coats the tongue
This is a very good beer I would drink any time. I appreciate what it is. Is there bigger better beers... of coarse. But this beer is delicious and enjoyable, and for that I give it credit.

(Firestone Walker, I had written you off. I am sorry, I didn't mean it, I know good things happen there. The Costco pack does not do you justice (obviously...))

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Served from the bottle into a globed glass. Bottled on 4/26/13

A-Poured black with a big creamy/fluffy mocha colored head that left lots of dense splashy lace

S- Big fragrant grapefruit, piney, and floral hops. Some chocolate and roasted malt notes. Big wood like notes.

T- Massive grapefruit notes, just like biting right into a fresh grapefruit or freshly squeezed juice. Some woody, earthy, and piney notes. Big roasted/charred malt character,

M- Very creamy and smooth, medium to fuller bodied, soft carbonation,finishes dry. Everything is spot on for the mouthfeel of this beer.

O- The grapefruit notes on this beer are so incredibly juicy and pungent. Nice malt backbone on this Black IPA. This is definitely at the very top of style for me, really tasty stuff.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Very dark, with reddish tints on the edges. The head is maybe a finger's width, off-white, and has long retention and a lot of lacing.

S: Toffee, alcoholic phenols, a spiciness, and some slight woody hops. Really not a ton of aroma coming off of this beer.

T: The taste is definitely a kick in the mouth. Sweet malts, toffee, and lots of spicy rye start this beer out. The rye melds nicely with the herbal, woody hops to take the beer through to the end. Despite all the sweet flavor, the beer is remarkably dry. The aftertaste is that f a pleasant burnt sugar.

M: Heavy body, almost chewy, but also a lot of carbonation to cut through the body. the beer is also slightly sticky in the throat.

O: Really a solid beer. It's a big beer, but I would expect nothing less from a black rye IPA. I am amazed at how well all the flavors are playing together.
