Sampled this at Savor 2010. Poured black, slight mahogany when held up to light, with a thin off-white head, less-than-stellar retention, and average lacing. Smelled heavily of roasted malt, as well as some cocoa powder, sweet orange, and modest lemon/orange zest. The taste revealed lots of orange/apricot citrus, evolving to balance out with some caramel/chocolate/roasty malt, and then finishing on a sweet orange note, with only a modest note of dry peel. Not much carbonation, and medium-bodied. A little too sweet for my taste; it would benefit greatly from some more bitter/dry balance like some other black ipa's I have tried.
