4.05/5  rDev +3.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Pours dep rich dark brown towards black under a tan creamy head that sticks around and etches the glass.

An excellent black IPA; recognizably an ale rather than stout or porter. Nose is rich with soy sauce and licorice over floral and herbal hops. Some sweet malt also in the nose.

Drinks smooth and dry with loads of body and IPA complexity, balancing the hops throughout the tasting as the roasty malts give way to layers of complexity. The soy sauce saltiness and pungency stays through the unwinding flavors of roasted grain. Ends salty-licorice, then dry herbal hops. Deep dark chocolate once the beer warms to room temperature.

Medium to rich mouthfeel. Not buttery, but moving towards full bodied. Short's nailed this one, and the label art is eye-catching.

4.48/5  rDev +14%
look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured from 12oz. bottle into a standard pint glass.
Dark brown/black in color, with a thick cloud deck of tan foam.
Aroma-Luscious boquet of piney, citrussy hops
Taste-Dark roasted malt, bakers chocolate, then onrush of piney, citrus hops that take control all the way to the tasty and tingly finish. Its your tastebuds that come away bludgeoned by the big roasty malts and full-on hop assault. A great match for a loaded burger, chili cheese fries, or a plate of hot wings. Hop-head approved!

A - Black as night with a creamy and batter like khaki head that maintains throughout. Leaves rings around the glass after each sip.

S - Big floral nose - citrus hops, malts, licorice.

T - A rush of citrus hops followed by a nice balance of malts and finishes bitter in the back end that lingers.

O -This is a really solid brew that drinks more like a Black IPA to me. It is definitely worth it to grab one if you see it.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A - Pours a very dark brown with a two-finger oamy white head. Heavy lacing.

S - Big scent of citrus and roasted malts. Awesome smelling beer.

T - Citrus is right upfront. Dark roasted malt follow. Hops come through in the finish producing a nice earthiness.

M - Medium bodied with high carbonation. Smooth mouthfeel with a dry finish.

O - Very nice beer. One of the most balanced black IPAs I've had. Very drinkable with some nice bold flavors.
