It's a very dark beer with porter/stout color. A nice half inch head releases some hoppy smell. I'm getting hints of black licorice and brown sugar, but I’m getting very little else. I'm picking up very little hops. It goes down nice and easy with a touch of oily feel. The aftertaste is a little sour and unexpected (not in a good way). Overall it’s a nice beer, but I didn’t get knocked off my feet as I expected I would. The bottle didn't get the best travel conditions, so I'm going to have to try it again soon. The 21st Amendment "Black in Back" is a better Black IPA.
Serving type: bottle

A: Black with a creamy lightish brown head.
S: Lots of floral and citric hops in the nose, and maybe just a touch of roasted malt, coffee, and dark chocolate.
T: Tons of pine and floral hops, yet not overly bitter, some citrus, some coffee and roasted malt. Hop heavy.
M: Smooth and full bodied, a bit creamy.
O: A great example of the style, and one of my favorites from Deschutes.
Serving type: on-tap
