Reviewed from notes. Had on-tap at Mr. Dunderbak's. Served in a pint glass.

A: Essentially black and opaque, with a thin tan head and medium visible carbonation.

S: A fairly low amount of aroma, especially for style. A touch of roasted malts and some resinous hoppiness - but even that takes some work.

T: Roasted malts with accompanying bitterness, resinous and citrus rind hop bitterness. This doesn't have huge hop flavors, but there is a decent alpha-bitterness underneath the big malt bill. Moderate lingering bitterness in the hang.

M: Full-bodied for style, moderate carbonation sensation. The alcohol is noticeable but not overly hot.

O: A decent black IPA, easy to drink - but nothing to make it particularly special.

I waited a long time to try this beer because I thought it was going to be scary hoppy. Don't make my same mistake TRY IT NOW.

This black IPA is tamed down a little in the bitterness compared to this breweries regular IPA. This is a prime example of a black IPA. The one thing that really surprises me with this flavorful beer is how strong it is. I have never had a beer under 6% with is much of a kick. But it is not too much, this is so well balanced that the strong alcohol flavor is very enjoyable, I would say this is one of my top three picks for the style of beer that it is.
