22oz bottle into a DFH Signature glass pours a deep almost opaque black with a nice frothy off white head that lasts as a thin layer and leaves nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is dark malts with a hint of citrus hops. The taste is a nice amount of crisp citrus and pine hops in front of a nice dark malt backbone that produces nice cocoa and burnt caramel accents to the delicious hop profile. The beer is on the light side of medium with smooth carbonation. This is a very enjoyable Black IPA, one I would certainly have again.

Poured from a 16oz can into a US tumbler pint glass.
A: The beer is a dark brown color, with a short off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.
S: The aroma contains roasted malts, some chocolate and some hops.
T: The taste starts out sweet with flavors of caramel, chocolate and maple which make this beer seem more like a brown IPA than a black one. The hops presence is mild for the style. The malt character is hearty and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.
M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean for the style.
O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, good kick, not the best representation style, it’s a good beer but it certainly does not seem like a “Black IPA”.
