22 ounce bottle into tulip glass; no bottle dating, but is a recent release. Pours pitch black color with a 2 finger dense tan head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, citrus rind, chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toast, light char, floral, grass, pepper, light funk, and floral/roasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/floral hops, fruity/spicy brett, and dark/roasted malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pine, chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toast, light char, floral, grass, pepper, light funk, and floral/roasted earthiness. Moderate amount of roast/pine/citrus rind bitterness and yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon/orange zest, citrus rind, pine, chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toast, light char, pepper, light funk, and floral/roasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice balance, robustness, and complexity of citrus/floral hops, fruity/spicy brett, and dark/roasted malt flavors; with a nice bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, fairly creamy/sticky, and lightly chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice Black IPA style. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/floral hops, fruity/spicy Brett, and dark/roasted malt flavors; and very smooth and fairly crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Aroma is roasty malt, pine, dark cocoa, and grapefruit. Flavor is roasty, with medicinal tones. The finish is bitter coffee grounds, a bit too bitter and charred for me. Underlying grapefruit is muted, but provides contrast to counter the bitter character. It's just not enough. Balance is decidedly bitter.
