A 32 oz growler from Dicicco's in Ardsley. A super winter ale this Black IPA is actually a very dark, clear brown with a light brown head. Slow fade, nice lace. Nose is a hop bomb that has pine, tropical fruit and a bit of very faint solvent alcohol sweetness. Roasted grain bill underneath. Taste is Hoppy up front with the pine and tropics flowing to a grapefruit bite in the finish. Charred grains give notes of coffee and molasses dipped dark bread. Booze is not anywhere it be found. Feel is pretty light and crisp for the style. Velvet carbonation. Drinks like a champ. No real sign of the abv so drink with caution. Me likey

1/2 growler filled at DeCicco's in Ardsley, NY

Pours stout black under a long lasting med. khaki cap. Leaves some spotted high lacing.

Roasted malt as well as hopped up nose.

Full flavor Black IPA. Roasted malts and solid hop presence in full force.

Tasty and highly enjoyable. Well done and well worth a try

I had this on Tap at the 4th Ave Beer Bar in Brooklyn. Poured into a pint glass, dark and rich, with a full head. Malty aroma, with a hint of hops, which is expressed on the first sip. The roasted malt flavor is very tasty without being overwhelming. Excellent example of an American Black Ale!

The beer offers medium roasted malt, grapefruit along with a touch of rubbery hops. A very clean black IPA with great roast and hop balance.

Another wonderful hoppy beer brewed by Other Half.

One of the best, if not the best Black IPA. It hit all the right notes, had a really pleasant nose and not too much roast or bitterness. Color me impressed.
