Appearance: Poured into a new belgium globe. Best by date of february 2014. Conservative pour yields three fingers of light tan head. Thick and creamy head built up slowly. Lots of stickage on the glass and the head retains nicely.
Smell: Hops take the forefront of the nose with fruity and pine notes. Also chocolate and coffee finish off the nose. Smell fantastic. Like the more hop forward aroma and think that is what this style should bring.
Taste: Initial blast of fruity hops immediately gives way to roasted malts. Hop bitterness lingers throughout but also melds with the dark malts of the beer, for a delicious brew.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied. Hop bite throughout with roastiness mixing in with the fruity hops. No bite of alcohol despite the higher abv.
By far the best black IPA I have had as it should be since it is the most expensive. More flavorful with the hops and the malt over any other I have tried. Odell brewing does it again. WOW just a fantastic "black IPA" that blows any others that I have tried out of the water. Don't really have any complaints about this beer.
