This black India pale ale is loaded with hops balanced with delicious maltiness. It was brewed with our friends from the great city of New Orleans in the band EyeHateGod.

2013 bottle into FFF Teku

Pour: Dark brown to a deep reddish especially along the edges when held to the light. Head was a good two fingers of khaki brown that receded quickly and left spotty lacing. Further consumption left more visible lacing...not huge but definitely more noticeable.

Smell: Light and easy on the nose with faint citrus hops like a bit of orange, lemon, maybe grapefruit. The malt and roast are in there faintly also. Big surprise to me that the nose on this is lacking.

Taste: Again follows the nose with oh so faint hop presence which is not typical of a FFF offering. Actually lacking some in this category for me as I was hoping for more of the FFF tropical citrus hops. They are there but subdued to me. The malt comes in next with a smooth grain and wood like taste. Some nutty taste mixed in with an ever so slight mild coffee twang and interestingly at the back it finishes more bitter than I expected with the mild hop taste up front. Finishes dry.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation creating a smooth and creamy feel. Alcohol is non-exisent and finish is dry leaving the palate ready for the next sip.

Overall: Not my favorite FFF beer but I do enjoy this style in general so this was up my alley. I probably will end up liking this more than most. Even though I describe the hop profile as subdued I find it to be adequate for the beer as I continue to enjoy this bottle.

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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.75

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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

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
