4.01/5  rDev +1.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a dark black color with off white head and lacing. Good looking brew. Aroma is roasted and hoppy, almost minty.

In the taste, roasted malt with a bit of smoke to it and herbal, piney hops with mint and citrus. Interesting flavor. Medium bodied with a dry hop bite. Herbal, soothing, with some alpha acids working the orange zest impression.

Overall, a tasty black ipa with some unique flavor.

Serving type: on-tap

22oz bottle, Best By 7/21/14, so we're getting close, and I'm wishing I had bought and drank this sooner...
L - tall, frothy tan head sits atop a cola-like, nearly black ale. Excellent head retention and sticky lacing
S - dank pine and citric hops, roasted malt, faint chocolate
T - black and bitter with roasted barley, baker's chocolate, pine, grapefruit rind, earth, caramel
F - resinous and drying, sticky, fuller body, nice carbonation
O - nice black IPA. I'd try it again if I could get it on tap or get a fresher bottle. Regardless, it's still really solid.
