From Notes, bomber into a pint glass.

It pours a lovely dark dark brown color with hints of amber and a smooth caramel head that exposes some lovely web lacing along the sides of the glass. Smells quite hoppy with hints of pine and a touch of coffee, very inviting. The taste is great, hoppy, bitter, lots of pine. It has lots of toasted malt flavors with some espresso flavors on the backend. It goes down smoothly although I do find it leaves a bit of a cottonmouth feel afterwards.

Verdict: One damn good black IPA. It mixes some great flavors in proper balance and with a milder 6.9% ABV it makes for great drinking.
