look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A - Pours black but not pitch black with thin, light tan head.

S - Overwhelmingly hoppy. This is not a negative, but I was expecting roasty or malty notes to add complexity.

T - Intense hops upfront. Again, not as roasty as I expect from a black IPA. Clean finish with pleasant bitterness.

M - Medium body and carbonation.

O - A solid beer, but the only thing that makes this a "black IPA" is the color (and slightly fuller mouthfeel). In other words, if I was blindfolded, I would think it was a full-bodied "standard" IPA.
