"Rage," The Imperial Black IPA:

A: Looks thick, especially if we put it in the Black IPA category. However, this is 14.6%, yes you read that correctly 14.6% ABV. It's dark, like really dark. Great finger-lacing, most I've maybe ever seen for this style.

S: You can smell a strong hop profile, much like the ANGER, but there's a sweetness to it...very interesting, but It works okay.

T: Sweet. Its got some hoppy goodness in it as well, much like the ANGER, but it's muted by the sweetness. The ANGER ended pretty dry while this one ends fairly sweet. The roasted malts are definitely more present in this than it's younger brother. This could be a super-dangerous beer, because I don't really feel that it's all that boozy (so beware!). I do feel like the hop profile is off in this one. Again, I'm more of a hop-head, especially in my IPAs, then a roasted malt/sweetness guy. It disappoints in this area for me, but may not for others.

M: Thick, for an IPA, but it is 14.6%, so yeah... The flavors just stick on your tongue like molasses. It's sticky like a medium stout would be. The flavor stays with you, so be prepared.

O - I'm really confused by this beer, even though I think it compares more with the Stone Black IPA than the Anger does. It's really good, but I'm not sure what category it fits in. I think Greenbush may have created a beer that belongs in a limited category...If you like Black IPAs, it's a must try. Greenbush is really surprising me.

On draught at the brewery, served in a snifter. A doubled-up up version of their regular 'Anger' Black IPA.

Black in body, dark red around the edges. Tan, almost brown head. Good lacing and retention. Big tropical and pine notes initially, and some dank/weed as it warms. A bit stinky intially (body odor?), but this ultimately manifested into the aforementioned weed smell. Substantial roast and dark chocolate as well intermingled with the pungent fop notes. Juicy tropical and pine notes on the palate again, herbal bitterness and a brown sugar/vanilla-like sweetness. Big sweet roasty body as well. Roasty long into the finish.Good full body and medium low carbonation. Alcohol is not at all evident which is awesome for it's size. Well done overall, while it's not a perfect hop profile by any stretch, it's still quite good.
