A really good beer but a definite near-miss. It is gorgeous for a black IPA. As dark as a porter and the mouthfeel is comparable to porters - thick and creamy and very appealing. The taste is solid but not outstanding for a black IPA. Everything is good but nothing stands out. Roasted malt, a bit of coffee, a strong but not particularly distinct hop presence in the taste and in the nose. It is a well balanced beer for this style, which is nice - many are not - but black IPAs - to me - should be bold and distinct. I like this beer a lot and think it would be a great summer beer when you're looking for something a bit heavier. It almost but doesn't quite blow me away. But the price is right: $9.99/six. This will make it a more likely choice for me.

Pour is dark brown, fairly right tan colored head. Nose has a decent amount of roast and some black licorice notes. Light char and a bit of citrus orange. Taste is even more char, heavy and dark roast, black malts, citrus and hops behind, lingering bitterness with strong lingering char. Strong carbonation on a light body, a bit slick on the back of the throat.

I dont really understand "Black IPAs" ....Theyre good, but I dont get it. Anyway, This beer is really good.
A- Aesome head retention. This is black as a porter. Nice lacing, a sure sign of a well crafted beer.
S- I smell the black patent(?) Malts and a dank piney floral hop aroma. Its quite nice, I almost smell licorice... interesting.
T- Matches the smell. I like it, I taste pretty much what I smelled, dank piney hops and dark malts. Its really a hopped up porter in my opinion, as for this style I think someone just messed up one time and said uhh its a black IPA, yeah thats it. Hah, some of the best things that happen are accidental. I like it though.
M- Outstanding. kinda chewy, full bodied, smooth, almost creamy, I love this.
Overall this is the best "Black IPA" Ive ever had. And Ive knocked back a few. Wortha try if youre into this sort of thing.

Cheers!

This pours a dark cola-caramel in color. The aroma is piney, dank, and slightly earthy with the grapefruit that I’ve come to expect in a black IPA. There’s a sticky, piney bitterness on the palate, with a grapefruitty dankness and a resiny finish contrasting a hint of roast. More, please.
