Look - Very dark with slight head that went away quick. The way a black ipa should look.
Smell - I can slight smell toasted malty slight coffee smell.
Taste - good amount of hops but still has a good dark taste.
Feel - medium body with slight carbonation.
Overall - this ipa was pretty good. Must drink it fresh. I drank it slightly aged and thought it was horrible.

Pours two fingers of head on a black body.
The aroma is just about the perfect mixture of roasted malt and lemon.
The taste starts out with the roasted malt, then quickly into the moderate to strong lemon and pine bitterness. Long bitter finish.
The texture is smooth with moderate carbonation.
An excellent black IPA.

12 oz bottle, with Jan. 2014 bottling date, served in a snifter.

Pours opaque and essentially black with a small, semi-durable head.

As per the looks, this is loaded with dark roasted grains. No shortage of hops either, but these two flavor components clash a bit, as is common with black IPAs. More burnt grain flavor and burnt toast than I'd prefer. Black coffee appears mid-taste and lingers on well after the swallow.

O: strongly flavored black IPA with hoppy, if not happy, feet.
