This is India Pale Ale done dark. Hops and a hint of roast start in the nose, then the hops take over with potent citrus flavors. The finish lingers with a tinge of toast and coffee.

Dark brown with a khaki head. Nice lacing. Nice dank hop nose of grapefruit, pine, and grass. Roasted malt, toffee, chocolate, and coffee malt aromas, too. Strong roasted malt, chocolate, and coffee. Nice grapefruit, floral, pine hop notes. Light bitterness, grassy hops, and slight malt sweetness on the finish.

Sampled at the brewpub on 2/27/2012. This black IPA pours a dark brown/black color from the tap. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is roasty malts, caramel, fruity and sweet. A medium bodied black IPA. The malts are roasty, caramel and sweet. The hops are grapefruity and herbal. Decent carbonation. Lost of hop flavors and hop bitterness. A fairly aggressively hopped IPA. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.
