Appears more brown than black with no head and thin lace that stays with it. Wow, this is a pungent beer. Slight malt but overpowering artificial fruit with a very strong, concentrated rubbing alcohol scent. Mouth is thin but the licorice explodes and leaves the bitter ends of mouth with that hop burn. It's a very fruity licorice flavor, but they seem to always be separate. There is only a slight malt overtone but it hit me as an overpowering glass of underwhelm. I love the Loose Cannon series, but this one misses the mark for me. I would enjoy a black lager or a super IPA, this one seems to mix the two with mixed results.

4.14/5 rDev +9.2%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25
Appearance: Black, foamy tan head that never died, nice lacing that held on throughout the drink.
Smell: Heavy peppery hop smell with a slight hint of fruit at the rear of the nose.
Taste: Not at all what I expect from an IPA. Smooth and almost sweet at the front with a quick hit of bitter hops and a slight but not lingering hop aftertaste. Mixed in the middle is a fig/fruit sweetness that comes as quickly as it leaves.
Mouthfeel: Very light for an IPA.
Overall: Quite good for a dark IPA. I'm glad I found this on cask. I'm thinking the cask toned it down. Overall a good drink.
