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.
