4.01/5 rDev +1.8%
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.

Best Before 7/2/14
22oz, In My Experience snifter
A: Pours a very deep brown color. Some reddish hues around the edges. Nice full finger of light tan head. Some sticky lacing is left on the glass.
S: Nice earthy pine hop aroma on the nose. Getting some of that common roast, from the darker malts. Toasted grain. Chocolate. Some black licorice.
T: Good amount of hop bitterness up front, and throughout the sip. As it warms, some of that roast and chocolate come into play more. Finish has lingering pine. Bitterness. Nicely done BIPA.
M: Medium bodied. Thinner than expected from the appearance.

A - 4.0 - dark brown black color with a big frothy off white had that leaves nice lacing.
S - 4.0 - Pine and citrus, with roasty malts in the background.
T - 4.25 - Nice. This has a nice pine and citrus bite to it, but this is well balanced with the roasty dark malts. This is probably less citrusy/hoppy than Wookey Jack or Stone Sublimely Self Righteous, but because of this it's very unique in it's flavor. I'd recommend it to someone who wants a black IPA, but one where you can still obviously taste roasted malts.
M - 4.25 - Medium. Not super heavy for a black IPA. Aftertaste is bitter citrus and roasted coffee. Alcohol is very well covered.
O - 4.25 - This is a great black IPA, and at 6 dollars a bomber it's a good deal. I wouldn't be suprised if it has magnum and simcoe in it, it tastes very similar to a black IPA I homebrewed a while ago.
