Single bottle from a 4-pack decanted into a tulip glass. Nearly pitch black with a copious quantity of thick, frothy beige head, great head retention here. Pungent hops on the nose, pine needles, grapefruit and orange rinds, fresh cut grass and parsley, along with a cola-like brown spice, licorice, light roast coffee, baker's cacao, and vanilla (!). Wonderful aroma. Palate might not quite reach these lofty heights but this is still a damn fine black IPA. Like this brewer's Galactica IPA, there are a few rough edges but the potent flavors nevertheless deliver the goods. Some wood char is apparent and serves to cut the sweetness on the nose. Decent balance between citrus/pine hops and dark malts ... Perhaps the latter have a slight edge although the hopping is far from subtle. Moderate carbonation, perhaps just on the low end, decent full body and a roasted yet green finish with a pleasing floral perfume. High price point for these 4-packs here and one can debate whether the execution justifies the price of acquisition. Probably.
