On draft at Whole Foods, Chandler, AZ.

Near black opaque body with a filmy beige head. Aromas of pine, chocolate, roast. Lovely balance. I'm not typically a of fan of black IPAs, but this is certainly noteworthy. Bitter chocolates and resinous hops. Silky mid palate finishing with some bitter chocolate and hop notes. Well done.

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

Poured into a snifter from a 12 ounce bottle.

A- Massive frothy oatmeal-colored head with a pitch-black body. 4.5

S- Piney and resinous and citrusy up front. There's a sweet, vanilla-like and almost rye-like aroma deeper in. It's big aroma. 4.5

T- Deeply resinous, piney and then faintly citrusy, the hops by no means take the back seat here. At the finish I get a dry dark roast flavor and maybe even a tinge of coffee. 4

There's some hop bite on this, but it still manages a creamy, medium-bodied mouthfeel. The finish has a mild bitterness and dryness that works quite well. 4.25

I probably should go buy a few more 4-packs before I can't find this on shelves any longer and kick myself for it. This is a damn good beer.

Poured from a bottle dated Best By 1/10/14, into a (tried in both a tulip and a pint, preferred a pint).
Appearance - black, but allows enough light in to notice carbonation and a mahogany tone is apparent against the light. Mountainous, mocha head with gobs of lace!
Smell - subtle pine, floral and citrus hops blended with chocolate and coffee.
Taste - Hops up front, dark coffee and chocolate malts finish on the palate. Some sips come across a bit too heavy, but that is nitpicking.
Feel - complex brew! Some hop bitterness, but overpowered slightly by the darker tones.
Overall - I love the Black IPA (Black Ale) style, in fact, possibly my favorite style. This is a brilliant representation! Complex, balanced and tasty...very well done!
