Minimal head retention after the pour. Dark and nearly impenetrable to light. Light whiff of hops and dark, roasted malt. Could have used more enhanced aroma. Much lighter on the palate and not as bold in flavor as with other dark IPA's I've tried.

Had this on tap at Twisted Pine's tap room.

All-around, it's not memorable but not bad either.

A - Very Dark brown with a small, quick-disappearing head but
good lacing of an inch or so.

S - Not much jumps out except maybe a little chocolate....

T - Decent flavor with average bitterness (surprising because their
description says the IBU = 80 or so). Nice lingering aftertaste.
Just not real complex.

M - Clean on the tongue and clean finish.

I would not order this again but it's not something I regret having.

(I believe the ABV was 7% but not positive so I have not
included it in the description)

22 oz bomber pours a coca cola color with quickly dissapating head. Aroma is muted dark malt (somewhat like the modeling clay I used in grade school), not much in the way of spicy or citrusy hops. Taste is dominated by peppery hops, with dark roasted molasses malt. Mouthfeel is like trying to eat pepper, very harsh on the tongue which lingers well into the aftertaste. This style is one of my favorites - clearly there are better examples than this one.

22oz $7 Dark brown, almost black, looks about standard. Smells like an IPA, not bad, kind of piney and citrus. The taste is not as hoppy as the smell, I was disappointed a little. It tasted like a brown ale and I just really wished the hops from the smell were present in the flavor.

22oz bottle. Pours dark brown with a medium off white head that quickly diminishes to a thin film that leaves some lacing.

The aroma is sweet roasted chocolate malts with some piney, resiny hops.

The flavor is roasted bitter chocolate malts with some piney, tarry hops in the finish. There's a good amount of bitterness that lingers in the aftertaste. The mouthfeel is medium boded and watery.

Overall, a pretty good black IPA. Good bitterness, OK flavors, a bit watery.
