Cans to snifters, sampling Yin, Yang, and the combination black and tan simultaneously, while trying to achieve a higher state of consciousness.

(%) YIN
LOOK: dark black, pretty tan head that constantly reforms upon agitation.
AROMA: quite light, mineral, roasted malt, slightest touch of coffee.
TASTE: all malt, very simple but tasty.
FEEL: very light and airy, though not completely like a guinness. Was looking for the separation in the black-n-tan, but it just mixed right up with the IPA. Ok carbonation for a stout.

(%) YANG
LOOK: orange with light brown, above average off-white head, lacing lasts throughout a long sip session.
AROMA: light touches of fruit and pine...in a crazy fractal way of looking, the Yang itself has both the YIN (dank/resin/pine/wood) and YANG (fruit/citrus/grass) of the IPA dichotomy.
TASTE: pine, tea, unflavored syrup. Slight little hairspray.
FEEL: light to medium body. Subtle, but above average carbonation.

(%) YIN/YANG

Like a black IPA.
Nice mix of hoppy and malty.
Hops win out in the aroma, but the malt dominates the flavor.

Cool concept.

Poured into a snifter.

4.5 A: Moderately hazed medium amber color. Three big fingers of pillow off-white head. Retention is good and tons of lacing is left.

4.0 S: This is a BW type DIPA. Big floral hop aroma right from the start. Citrusy orange, mango, pineapple, and grapefruit too. Layers of caramel sweetness on the malt side. Hints of toffee as well. Can't complain, it smells great.

3.75 T: Resiny hoppy stickiness. Floral notes foremost once again, then orange, mango, and grapefruit. Moderate bitterness. Plenty of caramel sweetness to balance along with a hefty neutral malt maltiness. Again, quite nice.

4.25 M: Heavier body. Good moderate carbonation. Big creaminess with a moderate sticky chewiness.

4.0 D: Really tasty malty DIPA. Not much else to say. Pick it up.

Pours amber with a creamy head.
Nose shows heavy clean malt, pine, resinous hops and some lychee. Massive malt hit too.
Very aggressive flavours, full of pine and grapefruit with a high, sharp, biting bitterness. Some booze too along with some malt that doesn't match the bitterness.
Could use more carbonation.

12 FL. OZ. 10% bottle poured into a tulip glass. Hazy golden color with frothy, three fingers tall off white foam. Excellent lacing. Aroma is dominated by sweet malts and plenty of fruity hops, mainly apricots. There is some toasted bread and honey. Some floral hops. Flavor follows aroma. Long lasting, heavy sweetness balanced with pleasant amount of bitterness. Medium body, oily texture, average carbonation and some spiciness best describe a mouth feel. Long dry finish.

It is a very, very tasty beer. Alcohol is well covered so be careful with that one. Missing some IBU in my opinion. I love malty characters of imperial IPA's, but in this case some more bitterness would be welcomed.
