First had: on tap at the brewpub
We've got, you know, amarillos in our trousers.
But seriously, folks...
Dark brown-black pour, with a small tan head that receded to a ringlet, leaving spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma was a bit distant, with notes of dark malts and light citrusy hops coming through. Taste was fairly mild compared to other beers of the style, which is actually not a bad thing. Taste of grapefruity hops, dark malts, fairly roasty, dark bread, some piney bitterness in the finish. On the lighter side of medium-bodied, and a nice drink overall.

on tap at the brewpub
Clouded deep opaque black color with a two-finger tanned head resting on top. Fades out slowly, leaving patchy, spotty lacing littered around the glass.
Piny hoppiness in the nose with a few citrus notes. Dark malts with warmer roasted tones, a dash of cocoa and chocolate. Soft alcohol warmth.
Formidable bitterness up front, pine hops with a touch of resin. Notes of citrus peel and light sweetness resting on the thicker dark malt backbone. Roasted tones, chocolate and cocoa lurk underneath. Finishes with pine hop bitterness and a kiss of alcohol.
Medium body, well carbonated, dry and sticky on the tongue. Quality hop-forward ale for the season, although this wasn't quite as memorable as some of their other recent brews (attn Light That Spills...)

This beer poured out as a deep brown color, not quite as dark as I was expecting it to be. The head was a light brown color. The retention and lacing were pretty good on this beer. The smell of the beer gave off a pungent aroma of citrusy hops and some roasted malts. The taste of the beer is nicely balanced with the hops and the roasted malts coming together. The mouthfeel is sharp, it's crisp and leaves a prickly feeling on the tounge. Overall it's a pretty sold Black IPA and I could see myself ordering it again in the future.

On-tap at the brewpub
A dark brown, almost black pour with a tight, creamy off-white cap. Some good retention as it never truly faded, settling to a thin layer of foam with some spotty lace.
Piney hops with some mild citrus over top. Lightly roasted malt with a bit of cocoa powder laying low. Nicely hopped, vibrant aroma.
Nigel slides onto the palate. Piney hops greet you first. Resiny notes. Mild roast and cocoa powder through the middle. The finish is a moderate bitterness of pine resin and mild grapefruit.
Medium bodied and smooth. A tad below creamy. Dry finish, with a bit of resiny stickiness left behind.
A damn fine dark IPA. Solid hop presence with malt bill that isn't too roasty and stays out of the way.
