look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Thick head with staying power, significant lace, brown to black with a tinge of maroon – 4.00, S: Amazing nose, hops dominant the nose emphasizing the IPA part of the Black IPA, lots of grapefruit and some chocolate malts – 4.75, T: Hops jump to the front of the beer followed by a nice specialty grain charring, pink grapefruit and pineapple sweetness, mild espresso, amazing flavor profile – 4.75, M: Smooth and creamy, faintest hint of grittiness – 4.50, This is what a Black IPA should be, dangerously drinkable, all around a wonderful beer – 4.50

Unfiltered Black Rye IPA

I really enjoyed this beer. Kudos to Firestone Walker for brewing a unique beer without taking it too far. It's not every day that I runn across an unfilter black rye IPA. I'd definitely recommed this beer.

great take on a black ipa. not as roasty, hoppy as others in this style, but the rye really gives this a nice sweet aromatic flavor.

a - black, med head.

s - nice med roast notes, slight sweet rye aroma

t - great. good clean, semi bitter pull with a sweet (but not too sweet) rye finish. excellent taste.

m - great body. goes down almost as easy as other ipas; just a notch heavier in body than a classic ipa, but not as heavy as a porter or heavier ale.

o - will def buy this again. quite a unique taste and one of the few black ipas i've found on the shelf.

Poured into 34oz mug; jet black with a huge thick fluffy tan head that sticks around forever and leaves tons of awesome lacing. Looks awesome, and as a member of one of my favorite styles, I'm excited. Smell is piney hops, some rye, and slight chocolate/coffee from the darker malts. Taste is just awesome...smooth chocolatey malts with a perfect amount of piney hop bitterness and rye spiciness. Mouthfeel is amazingly smooth...this is a nearly perfect beer. Alcohol is hidden entirely for 8.5%.
