22 oz bottle, no date

pours a dark brown, nice thin off-white head, good head retention. nice mix of earthy hops and a mild roast. taste is okay. light toasted malt flavor, herbal hop flavors, not sure everything mixes well. body is thin to medium, softer carbonation. good mouthfeel.

the name of this beer is pushing the straight face test. okay, just not sure it all works.

4.01/5  rDev +4.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Poured from 22oz bomber into a pint glass.

Appearance: extremely dark amber hue with no haze and a fairly strong effervescence. Head is nearly two fingers of pillowy tan foam. While not black, it's still a great-looking beer.

Smell: big, citrusy hops right up front, with a danker hop character underneath. There's a little caramelly malt in there, but mostly it's all about the hops. I quite like it.

Taste: surprisingly mild compared to the aroma, there's a nice base of caramel malt and a more piney, resiny hop flavor. Bitterness is strong compared to the sweetness, but not overwhelming. There's a good balance here for such a low ABV brew.

Mouthfeel: lightish body with a good carbonation and approaching a pretty good creaminess. It's hard to get great texture out of a low gravity beer like this, but I think they've done a good job for what it is.

Overall: I enjoy a good session IPA; the idea of a session American Black Ale is great. And in Blacklight, the execution is spot-on. I could quaff this all day.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

22oz : mason jar

Pours black with deep brown edges when held to light and a thick, foamy tan head.

Huge citrusy, resiny hops with a faint roasty cocoa backing.

Taste is similar to the aroma, only rated a bit lower as it just wasn't quite as bright and in your face as the aroma.

Medim body, foamy carbonation.

A great Black IPA. A bit spendy for a bomber, but I'm glad I got to try it.

Pours a dark brown color in the tall glass with a Very nice aroma of grapefruity hops. Pleasant sudsy mouthfeel that pumps up the low-alcohol body. Every pour give a frothy foam and that same watery refreshing mouthful.

The dark roasted malt is dark and deeply flavored, but overall it feels light on the tongue. There is an acidic tang with the hoppy aromatics. Kind of an explosion of flavor on the tongue. Brewer says this is made with Alchemy, Nelson Sauvin, Amarillo, Summer, and Citra hops. All in all, this is quite a delightful lower-alcohol brew that avoids the harshness of many "session" IPAs.

The aromatics are a pleasant citrus peel note. Thoroughly drinkable. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at QFC in the University shopping center in Seattle.
