Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a tulip glass

A- Pours a nice black with some light coming through on the edges. Has a high light brown head the dissipated to a thin film. Good retention on the glass.

S- Lots of dank pine with some backing of citrus and pineapple and slight roast coming through. With a big sniff I get a little of that piney hop nostril burn, nice.

T- Big hop bitterness on the front with medium level roast on the finish. Not that much of the citrus more straight up pine and bitterness. Pleasant level of bitter on the aftertaste with slight lingering roast.

M- Found this to be a bit thin for the flavor of the beer.

O- When my local bottle shop got this in a ran out and got some right away, I know that Black IPAs are best as fresh as possible if you don't was the roast to drown out the hops. There is a drastic difference between a week old Black IPA and a 2 week old one. There is a lot of flavor in this beer for being 5% and I give Short's much credit for that. One of the better examples of the style I've had.
