On tap at Blackback pub. This was poured into at tulip and I just had HF’s James for comparison. The appearance was a black color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated at a nice pace. Lacing was somewhat there; lightly stringy. The smell had a crisp sharp bitter cocoa bitterness hitting the coffee notes and then some strong citrus and piney bitterness coming in to bring the bitterness a bit up. The taste was mainly the same with a decent dry and bittersweet aftertaste running into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a medium in body with a decent dryness (of a Black IPA) showing its true face and trying to make it "unsessionable." Overall, as a Black IPA, it works.

Not sure what I'd consider this brew. While it says Black IPA on the menu, I'd consider it more of a hoppy robust porter, or a black ale.

Great roasted malt flavors. Lots of chocolate, coffee, and smoke. Although its got a lot of roasted malt flavor it isnt overly sweet. I got more hoppyness when smelling it with some classic citrus notes.

In a place where you are bombarded with world class IPA's, this was just as good if not better than most of the offerings. Very impressed with Zero Gravity.
