The beer poured a pitch black with slight ruby highlights when held up to the light a and a slight tan head that left sufficient lacing. The aroma was slightly piney but more resinous and citrus notes with sweet roasted malt backup as to be expected in a Black IPA. The taste exceptionally glided between dark roasty bitterness and piney, resinous hop bitterness that played off each other and kept my deeply coated palate guessing as to where all the flavors were coming from. The citrus hop flavors peaked their head out from time to time as well and really accentuated the interplay between the dark roasted malts and hop bite. There is almost a rye or roasted coffee tone deep in this monstrous beauty of a beer. A really superb Black IPA that manages the line between roasty malts and bitter hoppiness with finesse, if you can say that about such a high abv brew. Another great one from Odell.
