Poured black into the glass with a 1.5" rich thick khaki foam head that was persistent and left considerable sheets of lace. Very attractive. Citrus pith, resin, dark chocolate and coffee aroma. Smells delicious and yes, this is tasty. Coffee and semi sweet chocolates intermingled with citrus and resin hop are the predominant flavors. There is a pleasant roasted toffee malt presence in the background. Sweetness early on the palate is washed away by a solid dose of hop bitterness. The mouthfeel and body remind that this is a black DIPA and not a hoppy imperial stout. Medium with zesty carbonation. Alcohol shows up a little bit in the finish, along with ample bitterness reminiscent of black coffee, baker's chocolates, resin and citric pith hops. Good stuff.

A - Pours a deep black with a two-finger tan head. Nice amount of sticky lacing.

S - Hop forward - lots of grapefruit, orange, and pine. Roasted malts are also present.

T - Roasted malts right upfront followed by lots of hoppiness. There is a nice balance of sweet malts and bitter hops. Finish has a strong hop bitterness.

M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Very easy drinkng.

O - One of the better Black IPAs I've had. Nice blend of malts and hops. Very enjoyable.

Picked up a bomber at my local beer store.

A: Pours a dark brown, almost back into my Founders snifter. Aggressive pours resulted in 1/2 head that lingers.
S: Interesting, I had expected more of a floral, grapefruit aroma. The malt really hides the hops.
T: Same as with the smell above, where are the hops? Tasty, with a slight alcohol warming at the end, but I'm missing the hops I was expecting.
M: Not bad, not too thin, not too chewy.
O: Another solid beer from Clown Shoes, just a bit let down due to the absence of hop bite I was looking for.
