Grabbed a can of this from Kroger while I was over in Columbus for a beer festival. Picked up another from the same brewery and a mixed set. I've been enjoying craft brews for some time, but the canned craft isn't something I've encountered much. Still getting used to seeing that.
A: Poured this into a pint glass and it made a decent head. The beer itself is dark, but not quite as much as the marketing and packaging made me think it might be.
S: The piney hop smell is definitely dominant on the front.
T: I think one of the biggest elements here is first a very refreshing pine, but then it moves quickly into resin-y flavor that comes out ever stronger as the beer warms. This is isn't horrible, but I wasn't a big fan of the taste. To me, this is the core component, and I was disappointed with the Back in Black.
It's not a strong hop flavor, but I don't think there's much else there either. Maybe a little bit of sweet.
M: Nothing to complain about here. The feel is smooth and easy to drink.
O: This is a decent beer, but I doubt I will be picking up anymore. If it was available, I'd drink it. I'd even recommend it to a friend. This one just isn't for me.

12 oz can, enjoy by 7/17/14 poured into an IPA glass.
A - Deep mahogany and crystal clear body with a pinky sized beige head, OK lacing.
S - Burnt charcoal, tree bark and pine needles.
T - Roast and pine bitterness. Accelerated astringency with little to no balancing sweetness.
M - Dry, lingering burnt finish.
O - I don't like this style of beer in most situations, this brew is no exception. I feel that it brings out the least pleasant characteristics of stouts and IPAs without show casing either's redeeming qualities.

First off, I'm loving this trend of craft beers being available in cans. But as for this Black IPA, it's pretty darn tasty. It's not as bitter or hoppy as other IPA's I have had, but still has good flavor. There's a nice malt and heaviness to the beer without being cloying or filling.
