4.18/5 rDev +10.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: This beer pours as black as a stout in color which is hard to believe out of an IPA, it is topped with ¾” of tannish head that hangs around quite a while.
Smell: The blend of roasted malt and hops makes me think that this should be quite a delicious beer; both the aromas blend well together to make a tasty smelling brew.
Taste: The taste isn’t quite as well blended as the smell but it isn’t far off from being spot on for this style of beer. I would like the hops to be in the forefront of the flavor but to no avail the roasted notes dominate just a little too much for me to give it a perfect score.
Mouthfeel: The is mouthfeel of this beer is just like a IPA but it is hard on the eyes seeing a black beer and your palate is expecting a thick and oily feel to it and it is blasted with a medium bodied beer that flows quite nicely in and around the mouth. This is a great representation of this style of beer even though this tends to be the new and up coming style so many lack the flavor of the dark malts, but this is one that is better than most probably one of the best representations of the style I have drank.

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.
