Bottle shared with stillmatic2232, thanks man. First beer tried from Short's.

Pours black, with a one inch head, and not much lacing, really.

Aromas of pine, grapefruit, chocolate and coffee. Great aroma.

The aroma is better than the taste. Slightly watery at times, slightly muted hop flavor. The flavor is good, I just want more of it. Low amounts of roasted malt, some chocolate, pine, and grapefruit.

Medium to thin bodied, slightly disappointing. Crisp mouthfeel, finishes creamy, however. Fairly dry.

Pretty good, but not one of my favorite black ales.

A - Pours a dee black with a two-finger foamy tan head. Heavy amount of sticky lacing.

S - Light amoun of roasted malts with some earthy hops.

T - Starts off with light citrus, mostly grapefruit. Finish has a nice mix of roasted malts and piney hops. Lingering hop bitterness.

M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel.

O - Good beer and one of the better black IPAs I've had. Nice combination of roated malts and piney hop. Recommended.

Head is slow to form, but eventually forms a finger of solid, dark tan head. Retention is decent, and lacing is nice. Brew is a beautiful dark coffee brownish-black.

Ruby red grapefruit aroma bodes well for this Black DIPA. Some earthy and piney hops, as well. Dark chocolate roasted malts and a sweet honey aroma linger in the background only.

Big dose of chocolate, followed by citrus hops, finished with roasted malts and earthy hops. Long lasting roasted finish which intermingles with grapefruit pulp and citrus peel. Hints of mint, burnt coffee, and cream.

Medium feel, silky and smooth, yet lively. Long finish.

Black IPAs and hoppy stouts can fall into a gray area where what they're really trying to achieve can be a bit muddled. I think this one hits the target pretty well. The focus, from the aroma through the finish, is on the hops, although the dark roasty malts are very present.

12oz bottle poured into a Short's glass. Thanks Brian (brownbrian) for sending me a couple of these.

A- Pours an opaque dark black with about a quarter finger of creamy mocha head that has nice retention and slowly recedes to a flat top.

S- A good amount of roast and cocoa powder backed up by faint citrus hops in the back. Fairly aromatic, nice aroma, decent balance.

T- Fruity hops up front that add notes of pineapple and grapefruit and a light bitterness. Finishes with heavy cocoa powder and a bit of roast with the hop presence lingering a bit on the palate.

M- Medium bodied, very drinkable, nice carbonation level.

O- From a brewery I haven't been overly impressed with so far, this was definitely a quality black IPA and one of their better offerings that I've had. It had a nice balance, was flavorful, and very drinkable for the abv. One of the better black IPAs I've had and definitely worth trying.

Poured from a bottle into a Kahlua mug (don't hate).

A - Very dark and very little head. Grayish-brown not even covering entire surface area.

S - Scent is subtle, but more malty and stout-like.

T - Great malt flavor; toasty.

M - Creamy and, once-again, stout like.

O - Shorts has been hit or miss lately. I worry that they're doing too much by putting out so many different styles all the time. This, however, is not one of those misses. I picked this up as part of a mixed 6-pack, really enjoyed it, and could definitely go for another.
