Poured from a can into a tulip. Not quite as hoppy as I was expecting. Also roaster than I was expecting. Honestly, to me, seemed less a black IPA than a happier porter. Good mouthfeel and easy drinking. Not bad.

Mild fruity pebbles hops, triple C's. Old bread crumbs take away from hop profile. Malt body is appropriate for Black IPA. Solid, could be more pronounced.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draft at Barley Mow. Pours a hazy porter/ stout brown with an off-white head. Nose is some mild roast, big resiny and grapefruity flavors follow. Flavor is similar with some mild roast, some baker’s chocolate, and big pine and white grapefruit punch. Medium in body and an interesting black IPA overall.

2/26/13. Ticking RBWG leftovers at Kickbacks! Really dank hop aroma, bordering on soapy, with plenty of grapefruit, roast and chocolate and a touch of acidity. Rich roasty flavor with coffee and chocolate and lots of tasty dank and fruity hops. I dig it!
