3.63/5 rDev -6.2%
Served into a teku.
A- Appears jet black at first, but when in the light it is a dark moca brown. Not much head retention, but great amounts of lacing.
S- Extremely hoppy, with lots of pine. However, I can smell some earthy malt undertones.
T- Initial pine taste, but then I taste some earthy coffee-like malt. However, I disliked how hoppy this beer ended. Just dries my mouth out.
M- Heavy and high carbonation, but enjoyable texture for the style.
O- A great black IPA, and it could be stellar if it wasn't so ridiculously bitter. Still on par with wookey jack.

Bottle poured into a FFF teku during the week it was released
A - Dark brown that lets no light through it. It had a two finger head composed of many small bubbles and left lots of lacing down the sides
S - Light roasted and smoked malt initially. Slight grass, lemon and orange peel. It is also fruity with pineapple and slight mango to it
T - Upfront is sweet pineapple, slight strawberry and mango. As the beer continues, you feel the bitterness creep up and work its way to the back of your tongue as pine and grapefruit make themselves known. There is a slight roasted malt and pine that linger in the finish
MF - Medium body with lots of carbonation to make this a nice creamy beer. Light hop resin remains in the finish
O - A great black IPA from FFF that brings lots of different hop flavors together with the fruity and the bitter pine / grapefruit. It is well balanced between the two and has a nice creamy mouthfeel. Another great IPA from FFF.

A - Deep brown- slightly opaque. HUGE light mocha head, 3+ fingers, great lacing.
S - creamy carmel malt, chocolate, and minor hops
T - initial- carmel, smoothness and creme. finish- piney, bitter and a little boozy
M - wow its frothy. viscosity is low.
O - wasn't super impressed with flavor. was hoping for more hoppiness. alcohol comes thru more than expected. Three Floyds has many much better products. I would pass on this brew.

4.05/5 rDev +4.7%
A - black with a big, thick, dense, brownish head that has great retention
S - chocolate, roasted malts, citrus, pine
T - roasted malts, bitter, chocolate, piney, herbal, some citrus, some vegetal-like spice
M - medium bodied, well carbonated
This is a pretty solid Black IPA. There is great balance and tremendous drinkability. The hops are intense and the flavor profile really hits a good range. I actually thought the herbal character meshed best with the malt character. The malts were also prevalent, but very well balanced. This was a decent Black IPA that is definitely worth checking out.

Appearance- a vigorous pour leaves a light head with plenty of dark malt but more of a dark reddish brown, then black.
Smell- Slight cascade or citra hop leaves the dark malts overwhelmed
Taste- The strong citrus front is followed up by a piney resin that balances the dark malts.
Mouth- perfect viscosity is followed by an apropriate addition of carbonation and bitterness
Overall- Best Black IPA to date perfect example of a solid beer from the FFF
