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.
