Lives up to its name, pours pitch black, not much head or lacing, but definitely a dark beer. Smell is pure hops, huge amounts of grapefruit and citrus. Not much of a malt/chocolate smell at all, but I did smell a little bit as it warms up. Taste is just like the nose, with the chocolate malts showing up more on the finish but dominated by the big hop flavor. This is a very hop forward black IPA. If that's how you like them, then this one is a damn good example. Body is on the lighter side, and also more reminiscent of an IPA. Easy to drink, very refreshing and just a downright excellent beer from a brewery that doesn't get much credit these days.
