3.64/5  rDev -11.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Pours a nice solid black, with a modest tan head with good retention.

On the nose, it's clearly hoppy, with nary a roasty note to be found. Dank and piney, with a touch of citrus.

On the palate, this brew is exceptionally dank and earthy, with an interminable pungent aftertaste. It really overwhelms anything else going on, and essentially requires a chaser.

Oily, with a super long finish.

This hop profile is clearly not for me, but YMMV. As another detractor, I don't get any real roasty notes; if they're there, they're overwhelmed by the hops. All in all, that really takes away from the entire point of a black IPA.

4.24/5  rDev +2.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Arrives fudge brown with a tan head that piles high; impressive lacing action coats the glass

Smell: Hop forward, with a combination of citrus and pine; roast and coffee tones underneath

Taste: As in the aroma, the hops are prominent, bringing citrus and pine tones in front of the roasty malt aspect; the bitterness builds through the finish, with the malt playing a supportive role

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A tough style to pull off, but Funky Buddha does it again with this one
