Great beer, awesome flavor and aroma. They use some great hops in this one, Simcoe and other big hitters.

This has been my go to Black IPA for the past year and it never disappoints any time I've had it. The pine and citrus are very strong when you first drink it and it follows with a deep chocolate and coffee aftertaste with some slight bitterness from the hops. There's a lot going on in this beer and the flavors all come together to produce something that's not only unique but very drinkable. Very recommended for any Black IPA fans out there.
