The only black IPA/black ale I've enjoyed. I'd buy this again.

Pours pitch black and creates a fleeting soapy head.

The nose has a lot of resiny hops...not as floral/citrusy as a "normal" IPA... but I like it.

There is a lot of hop bitterness which dominates the taste with the hint of mint to give it some lightness. Enjoyable construct. This has some heft to the mouthfeel, which makes it a sipping kind of ale.

If all black IPAs had these fundamentals, I'd enjoy the style more often.

Dark chocolate brown with a small light tan head leaving very intricate lace.

Smell is cat pee and skuny hops, a little bakers chocolate, which grows as it warms

Taste is big hops, herbal and morso citrus flavor with a big bitter finish. Taste is rich and malty, dark chocolate. Alcohol is a bit to prominent.

Mouthfeel is malty, off dry, med+

Drinkability is pretty good, it's on the big side, more DCDA. Alcohol is spicy and drying, it gets a little tiring after a while.
