look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Dark brown with garnet edges. Big think head leaves moderate, irregular lacing. Piney hops mix with toasty dark malt aromas. Medium heavy body with high carbonation. Dark burnt malts dominate the taste with a grassy hop finish. Mild sweetness. A pleasant enough beer, but not a standout.

look: 4 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3

A - pours a dense dark brown-black. Short tan head. A little bit of lacing.

S - let down. Not much going on here. Fresh beer too. Very mild floral, pine and citrus. Some woody funk that appears in many Firestone beers. The rye isn't obvious, but it's there. Mild malty aroma with a dash of hops.

T - is thankfully more robust than the aroma. There is some citrus from the hops and a mild caramel from Midnight Wheat. The rye isn't a major flavor component, but it might add a little spicyness. The flavor isn't bad, but I find it to be rather boring.

M - medium grainy texture with low-medium carbonation. Moderate bitterness with a short sustain.

O - I normally like Firestone beers, but this one was unimpressive and I won't buy it again.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Handsome dark brown in the Crooked Line narrow tulip. Beige head foams up nicely. Pleasantly sudsy mouthfeel. Aroma of pineapple and resin is appealing.

The hops overwhelm any malty flavors, so it's hard to tell if there is much roasted barley taste. Has some of the herbacious flavor of many other black IPAs, but returns to the candied mango. A little charcoal. Very bitter in the aftertaste. It just doesn't know when to quit. Fruity and piney at the same time.

This seems to hit the bullseye for this sort-of style, it's black and it's totally hops. Not getting a repeat visit from me. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Liticker's in San Diego.
