look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

12oz bottle with pry-off cap poured into a tulip glass with a best by date of 02/05/2015

Appearance: Pours a deep mahogany with ruby highlights and ample head

Smell: Pleasant mint, roasted notes and some floral hops

Taste: Incredible balance with roasted chocolate malt and hop citrus and faint sweetness on the end with the high ABV

Mouthfeel: Light and dry considering the ABV

Overall: A fantastic Black IPA. Impressive considering I am enjoying this past the best by date. The high ABV provides some warmth but does not overpower. All of the components are balanced very well.

People tend to get intimidated with the name (Double Black IPA). However the black part of this beer tones down the hoppiness allowing this beer to be very drinkable. Lots of flavor and lots of alcohol (9.5% ABV) makes this among the top of my list.

Pours a dark brown, black. Smells of dark roast malts, some char, pine and some citrus. Tastes of roast malts, caramel, pine, citrus and floral hops. Medium body and carbonation. Citrus and pine resin, sweet malts.

Very good example of the style. Certainly a sipper though ;)

Another great brew from this brewery. It could just use a bit more bitter taste as it leaves a bit quickly

I am still trying to get over the oxymoron of a black IPA but here goes: Grassy hops, light roast, hints of chocolate very faint spice suggesting anise on the nose. Pours brilliant black to dark brown under a 3” tan cap. It is very creamy with an underlying sweetness with light roast – but no burnt flavors, dark sugars suggestive of light chocolate, faint fruit and spice on the palate. Less hop bitterness than expected. Medium body and a little more than medium on the carbonation. Not as hot or warming as your would expect for 9.5% abv. Very drinkable.
