Handsome dark brown in the Crooked Line narrow tulip. Beige head foams up nicely. Pleasantly sudsy mouthfeel. Aroma of pineapple and resin is appealing.

The hops overwhelm any malty flavors, so it's hard to tell if there is much roasted barley taste. Has some of the herbacious flavor of many other black IPAs, but returns to the candied mango. A little charcoal. Very bitter in the aftertaste. It just doesn't know when to quit. Fruity and piney at the same time.

This seems to hit the bullseye for this sort-of style, it's black and it's totally hops. Not getting a repeat visit from me. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Liticker's in San Diego.
