4.2/5  rDev +11.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Pours a very dark brown, with a frothy cola colored head that retains well. The aroma is very green, with big and juicy citrus hops upfront, along with some dark chocolate and coffee notes, a bit of tobacco, some molasses, dark fruits, burnt bread and alcohol...a bit raw but very complex and inviting. The flavor starts off with citrusy and piney hops, along with some chocolate and coffee, molasses and burnt bread, dark fruits, chalk and a bit of alcohol. The mouthfeel is moderate and drinkability is very good for the style. Really tasty example of a black IPA, somewhat balanced and pretty complex...a real winner.

4.01/5  rDev +6.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured from a bottle into a chalice glass.

Appearance - Mine eyes be deceiving me! This looks like a porter/stout. If you were to tell me this was an IPA I would giggle at you profusely. I will be the first to admit that I do not have a lot of experience with Black IPAs, but this looks good. Very dark in color, tannish head.

Smell - a very earth smell, a mix of hops, grass, and a bit of a floral sweetness right at the beginning of the sniff.

Taste - a beautiful blend of hoppy bitterness and malty roastiness. I really enjoy this beer as so many IPAs focus on crushing your palate with hops at this point in time, this does not do that.

Mouthfeel - bueno

Overall - a really nice beer from Heavy Seas. I would drink it again, and probably recommend it as a try for friends.
