Always if in liquor store, grab this BIPA. Just wonderful, fruity, caramel, toffee, chocolate, bitter, plenty of carbonation, dark dry finish. Thumbs up.

Got this in a 6pk of 12oz cans poured into my Sam Adams 20oz glass... Pours a decent 1/2 in head great dark black color... Smell is of bitter hops love it... hop bitterness is present followed by roast dark malt flavor exactly what I'm looking for in this style of beer... leaves just a little bitterness on the tongue aftertaste of hops sticks with you which is a plus in my book... mouthfeel is smooth, easily drinkable goes down again and again... I will buy this beer any time I'm looking for a black IPA

One of my current favorites. Perfect any time of the day. Coffee notes, hoppy, malty. So well balanced. I wish it was a tiny bit thicker but that's just me. Another amazing beer by 21st Amendment.

tropical hops and roasted malt working in unison and making something glorious tough to wrap your head around but utterly delicious
