22oz bottle dated 9/20/13 $5.99. Dark black with a ridiculous head, I had to wait on it. Aroma was piney and had notes of orange and spice, super fresh hoppiness. Flavor was spicy, pine, citrus. Very well done for the style and the price is super reasonable.

22 oz. Bomber from Bevmo! for 5 bucks!

A: Jet black with an aggressive cream head! Great retention on this one!

S: Outstanding! One of the best smelling beers I've ever had! Getting tons of citrus, pine and oak! Pineapple, pine needles, peach, green apple, green grape, and orange!

Taste: Of the top comes a sweet malt that flows into a rye spicyness! Then comes the hops to give it that nice bitter IPA punch! Getting sweet malt, rye, Granny Smith, pineapple, orange, grapefruit, and a slight mellow oak ending! Reaches an almost cask like finish!

Mouthfeel: Rye spice to begin but mellows out to an almost creaminess! Supe smooth and goes down easy! Perfect carbonation!

O: Might seem like I'm gushing on this one but I truly enjoyed it this much! One of the best and most unique IPAs I've had! Black/rye IPAs are coming to be some what normal but this blows everything I've had in that category out of the water! Bench mark in IPAs and dominates the Black/rye IPA field for me! Do yourself a favor and pick this beauty up!

Edit: Had it on tap at Firestone Taproom and while the oak flavors are more hidden the freshness is incredible! Outstanding both ways! My taste buds would melt if I could find this one on cask!
