Half finger head with nice lacing on a jet black body. Aroma is balanced with roasted malts, earthy hops, with light coffee and vanilla. Flavor is also fairly well balanced for the style with roasted malts and dark chocolate mingling well throughout with the earthy and slightly floral/grassy hops. Medium body and light to moderate carbonation. So many of these aren't very well balanced and either are more of a stout or an IPA but the balance here makes this a nice black IPA it's jut not complex enough to make it the best but still one to try while at the brewery.

12oz bottle into a tulip.
a - pours a murky brown shade with a thin cap of light brown head. leaves thick rings of lacing in the glass.
s - sweet citrus, faint roasted malt, faint dark fruits, faint pine resin.
t - more of the nose. pine resin, roasted barley, faint grapefruit, faint dark fruits. has an herbal bitterness that hangs on the tongue for quite a while. really an interesting flavor profile. tastes...angry.
t - lighter in body with lighter carbonation and a medium co2 profile.
o - an interesting take on the style. not quite like any other beer i have tried. memorable, but maybe just shy of greatness. worth trying if you come across it.

Poured into a pint glass from a growler drawn two days earlier at the greenbush brewery.
Appearance- pours a thick looking, oily dark brown with a huge bubbly, dark tan head. The head dissipated very slowly leaving lacing all over the place. Inpresstive soft head- almost like a nitro-tap.
Smell- A faint roasty coffee note, followed by a resinous marijuana funk, then dominated by a huge hop bomb. What an American black IPA should smell like.
Taste- roasty coffee malts and dark chocolate that fades into bitter plum, then an all out bitter hop finish. Aftertaste is like hoppy cold espresso.
Mouthfeel- Smooth and creamy with a bitter mouth pucker.
Overall. Nothing remarkable, but a dynamite representation of a Black IPA. Very well done. Beauty in simplicity.

I had several beers on tap at Greenbush on 8/11/2012. By far this beer was the highlight. Noting that I am not a fan of the genre of black ale, I was particularly impressed with this one.
The ale was black in the pint glass with a slighlty off-white head. There was a slight lacing in the glass, though not note-worthy. The aroma was a borderline rancid level of hops. Hopheads will love the aroma. The ale had a smooth mouthfeel, though it was somewhat thin. Citric notes such as grapefruit and pine accompanied a mild maltiness. In the aftertaste, a mild maltiness became more apparent as the citrus notes faded.
Black ales are often an explosion, like every member of a band playing their loudest note at the same time. Anger allows the individual notes of a black ale to stand out.

A: Pours out a deep black color with some reddish hues. Only a mild quarter finger of light tan head. Some slight lacing bits.
S: I get a good amount of hops on the nose. Piney, earthy hop aromas. Behind that is some I do get a touch of roast coffee and some chocolate.
T: I get that hop bitterness on the tip of the tongue (and through the mouth). Don't know if it's 85ibus but it's nicely bitter. You certainly get that piney hop bitter flavor. I does overpower the dark malts, which surprises me. Wish it meshed better and blended the styles more. As it warms, I get a little more light roast and chocolate. Finish is actually creamy along with bitterness.
M: it's medium bodied.
O: It's about a B. Not the best BIPA around.
