Best black IPA I've had to date. Pours a black with a nice off white inch thick head. Smells of chocolate and coffee with a bit of citrus and earthy hops. Taste is an incredible balanced citrus, fruity ester, and roasted malt flavor. Full mouth feel and a medium body.

Guess I am a sucker for Short's black Ipas as I love bludgeon yer eye as well (truth be told i am a sucker for black ipas in general). This beer is smoother and a little less bitter than Bludgeon. Drinks much more like a bitter stout like Bells expedition. Fantastic beer.

It's big, black and green- and it's back for good! Last year's seemed a bit more effervescent, but this is one of the boldest of its steez. Short's naysayers better reckonize. A hops and malt two hitter that'll make you question why you often pay so much for a 4pk that includes too much bourbon. If this were an 8pk, you could aka it- Robobeer. Naturally you'd want his permission.

Looks black as it claims to with a tiny ,mocha head. Smell is of hops, malt, caught a whiff of lemon. Each sip starts out like an IPA, mouth full of hops, but with a creamy aftertaste. Truly succeeds in being a creamy IPA unlike a hoppy porter, like some other black IPAs I've had. Damn good.
