A standard bearer for American Black Ales. The complexity and integration of flavors are superb. Malty and thickly hoppy. It suits those palates that enjoy barley wines, and @ 9%, it drinks so easy. I referenced this ale in my Recent Project Pam review, so I noticed I had never rated this. Most "black IPAs " ain't so great. This one put the serious schnizzle in my nizzle. Nuff said.

Appearance: Pours a clear dark reddish brown with two fingers of off white head.

Smell: A lot of lighty citrusy and floral hops along with a fair amount of malt.

Taste: Bitter hops upfront with a nice malty finish. I really liked the hop's flavor in this beer, but it is a little short lived if I am looking for something to complain about.

Mouthfeel: Alcohol is fairly obvious making the beer fairly warm. The beer has a medium body. A very smooth finish as well.

Drinkablity: Dangerously high for a beer with an abv of 8.7%.

A very tasty and interesting beer, haven't had anything quite like it before. Although when it gets warm the alcohol flavor begins to overpower everything else, when drank cold to cool the alcohol is not nearly as obvious.
