Tried the "Black IPA", and it was different! Not what I was expecting, but I have had a lot of IPA's... but not a lot of black ones. So, I can only tell you how it tasted to me and what kind of hop flavors came through.

Up front was the piney aroma of Simcoe hops, the mouth feel was a lot of roast, mainly coffee notes, the aftertaste had a different hop character .... earthy, musty, dank ....maybe Mosaic hops ...not sure. I did not personal care for the aftertaste, in the end the combination of those flavors was like drinking the flavor of a burned down house. But don't get me wrong, I did drink it all and can honestly say it was not ....bad, but one was enough.
