look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 22oz bottle (with a born on date of 8/9/2013), into a tulip.
Appearance - black, though against the light it shows some mahagony. Thick, fluffy tan head that recedes to a thin head that stays! Plenty of sticky tan lacing!
Smell - wow, didn't expect this to be such a hop punch in the face! Wonderful citrus hops, grapefruit! I'd be surprised if you find any black ale that smells better, and you probably won't find many DIPA's that do either!
Taste - there's so much going on with this beer! Hop forward, but momentarily gives way to some roasted coffee, a touch of rye bread, but citrus hops are noticeable throughout. Very complex on the palate, very well done!
Feel - not as complex as the taste; lacks some of the rye, roasted barley and malts. Lots of hops...which certainly isn't a bad thing!
Overall - somewhat pricey, but I'll seek out again and again!
