Generally not a huge fan of black IPAs, but this is a home run. Fruity, malty, hoppy... Jesus, what more could you want. Green Flash Black IPA converted me into a believer. A well-balanced attack on the senses. Love it. (Granted, it's a sipping beer -- you really don't want to have more than one or, well, two.)

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.

Picked up a bomber from BevMo at the end of March for $5.99. Best by 7/21/14.
Beer poured dark brown with a nice off white head that is leaving lacing behind.
Nose is fresh citrus hops and hints of roasted malts.
Taste has hints of the sweet caramel malts along with roasted black malts. Citrus and pine come on full force and leave a nice lingering hop bitter finish.
Mouthfeel is pretty creamy for the style which i do not mind.
Overall this is one tasty brew; definitely give it a shot if you come across it!

Poured into pint glass from bomber
A-Nice and dark with a deep amber/mahogany tint. Thick head with nice, fine lacing at first dissipating partially over a few minutes.
S-Citrus, grassy with some of the darker notes as well, maybe some of the roastiness coming through here.
T-Fits the smell. Nice roastiness followed by some lingering citrus and bitterness. Really enjoyable.
M-A good weight to it without being too heavy/syrupy. Coats nicely.
O-Not as complex on the nose as some, but very enjoyable example of black IPA that isn't too far on either end of the malt/hop spectrum. Would buy again.
