Smooth,Malt, earthy. Slightly hopped. Very Easy Beer to drink. Even though the IBU's were at 65, it didn't taste that hoppy. I think it's a unique beer. I didn't feel like it was 6.8%ABV. It was very smooth and would think it was more in the 6.2%. It was like having a Nitro Milk Stout and a Alaskan IPA having a child.
I think there is room for the creation of the Dark IPA market. It's nice to have those earthy, full-mouthed IPA with some stout notes.
I would think that this would be at least scored in the 80's. I think there are better IPA's, but then again. Is this just an IPA?

Enjoyed this 12oz can out of a Belgian Tulip glass.

A: Pours a dark brown- black with a mild amber highlights with a thick light brown 2-finger head that slowly dissipates and leaves a solid lace.

S: Great tart hoppy aroma.

T: Smooth tart and bitter hoppy IPA flavor. Slight citrus background and finishes tart and dry.

M: Medium body and medium carbonation.

O: This was a really good black ipa. Nice and hoppy but balanced nicely by the malt.
