look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

12 oz bottle pours a clear, dark mahogany color with a billowing cap of tan head. Nice retention and lacing.

Hops on this one are easily identifiable as citric, maybe a little tropical too. Malts show some char and roast.

Taste is big on the hop flavor and surprisingly low on bitterness, for me sometimes the roasty char and hop bitterness can be a bit much, but this one has a nice mellow bitterness. The malts actually have a touch of chocolate that is nice. Mouthfeel is pretty thin, but it seems to work in the beer's favor for some reason. This Black IPA might be more simplistic than many of the style, but I find it to be quite enjoyable and manages something rarely accomplished for those of the Cascadian persuasion...it's refreshing! Id buy this again, yizeah.
