Can purchased as part of a mix-six pack from Wegmans.

Pours a dark creamy looking black, with a one inch head, and a good amount of lacing.

Smells piney and grassy, with some chocolate and vanilla in the background. A bit of citrus as well.

The taste is basically the same. A run of the mill, but still tasty Black IPA here. The strong amount of vanilla and chocolate I'm getting sets apart from the pack. The usual tastes of piney/citrusy hops atop a roasty malt backbone sit here nicely.

This one is medium bodied, with a creamy but dry mouthfeel, and a medium amount of carbonation.

Not 21st Amendment's best beer (that honor goes to Bitter American or Brew Free or Die!), but it's still tasty.

I always liked black IPA's, and this one solidified that. Just a great brew. Straight outta the can is quite nice. Good amount of hop flavor (65ibus) but great balance. This is one of the most drinkable black IPA's you'll find. Sits light on the stomach, and goes great with chicken and spicy peppers.
