The Black IPA from Green Flash is a good easy drinking Black IPA. The beer poured a nearly opaque with thick white head that left a very nice lace. The scent and taste carry a roast and pine flare. The mouthfeel was medium in body with smooth carbonation. Overall this is a good Black IPA.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours like a stout, with a great bubble show, though the liquid winds up being more of a root beer brown color; impressive head, nice retention and plenty of lacing

Smell: Burnt toast and ashy, with the hops bringing piney tones

Taste: The piney tones leap to the forefront, but the burnt toast and ashy flavor builds through the middle; the hops recover their prominence, after the swallow, though the malt elements linger in the aftertaste

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: I am drinking this beer about 10 days after the best by date so the hop flavors are not likely what the brewer intended; still, I find the malts here just a bit too charred and, when compared to the Lagunitas NightTime I had just a few days ago, this beer comes up short
