look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured from a bottle dated "bottled on" 3/18/2013 (so aged a few months), into a pint glass.
Appearance - darker than most black IPA's, no mahogany hue when against the light. Thick, creamy, meringue head! Lacing is sticky and thick!
Smell - cocoa, dark chocolate, brownies; not much early on in the hops department.
Taste - more malt forward than hops upfront, but a nice hop and dark chocolate bitterness present.
Feel - medium body with some bitterness, but more bitter chocolate, as opposed to hops.
Overall - admittedly, I really love the American Black Ale/Cascadian Dark Ale/Black IPA style, so I find this beer to be outstanding!

A: A very dark brown almost black in color, a nice tan head at the top that stayed almost the time, lots of frothy lacing around the glass as well.
S: Roasted malts are definitely present, hint of coffee bean as well, the hops give it a slight hint of tropical fruit.
T: Roasted malts and the hops are a perfect combination on this one, coffee is noticeable as well as some brown sugar and some sort of tropical fruit in there as well.
M: Medium bodied, slight bit of carbonation, and a good stickyness.
O: First time trying a beer from this brewery and was definitely impressed with this Black Ipa, a well balanced brew with good flavor and good hop kick, definitely will be trying more of there beers.

Strong flavoursome beer that has a good contrast of sweet and bitter
aroma: quite fruity upfront with orange standing out - roasted malt and yeast are also there
taste: grapefruit, orange, orange peel and slight pine all stand-out with a good roasted malt backbone. Good bitterness balanced with a fruity sweetness.
Nice, enjoyable beer to sip on - one bottle is the right amount for me in one sitting.
