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.

On tap at the brewery. Served in a pint glass.

Appearance - Black and a little transparent at the edges. Nice khaki head. Three fingers at least. Thick collar.

Smell - Grassy and piney hops. Grapefruit. Roasty. Coffee roasted malts.

Taste - Bright hop flavor. Grapefruity. Sweet caramel immediately. Roasted malts come in the back end with a roasty bitterness. Hop comes back in the finish with some pine.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Drinkable. Moderate bitterness.

Overall - I love this beer. I've always thought it was one of the Buddha's best.

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
