The color is a clear garnet with a large light tan head, and the aroma is rye with resin and floral hops. The taste is quite bitter, slightly sour, and a touch umami, but the heavy bitterness doesnít linger, which is nice. There is a average carbonation, medium body, slick texture, and a slightly bitter finish.

Pours dark brown almost black, amber tint when held up to light. Big tan head. Citrus, resin, pine aroma with hints of roasted malt, chocolate and rye. Sweet malt start, quickly disappears. Followed by sharp bitter resiny pine flavor and finishes with a roasted malt flavor and a hint of rye. Really enjoy.

Too bitter! Kind of a diluted IPA with hints of rye, wheat, and resinous hop. Flavor has no sweetness and a plain sour malt note. Kind of hard to drink with the flavor and high carbonation combined.

750 ml bottle, best by 11/2014. Pours brown with a huge and growing creamy light tan head that retains well and laces the glass.
The aroma is roast, sweet chocolate malt, rye and piney hops.
The flavor is sweet chocolate malt, spicy rye with big roast piney bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and a little watery.
Overall, a nice black IPA with lots of piney hops, roast and some rye.

Had this a beer, bourbon, and bar-b-q fest and it was by far the best brew there. Pours like porter, or thin stout. Smells of citrus and roasty malts. Tastes freaking amazing.

750ml bottle. Not a huge fan of IPAs but this is not bad. In fact itís pretty good. Itís helping me get used to drinking this kind of beer. Itís dark and rich on the tongue but very hoppy and floral on the finish. Will buy again.

Cola black pour with a huge effervescent tan head when poured from the 750. Nose is lightly malted, mixed hops, and a slight hint of rye. Mouthfeel is great, with a textural crispness. Really spectacular black IPA.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear brown pour with ring of tan head. Fruity rye character with roasty malt and good resiny bitterness. Really well done for the style. But I donít particularly care for rye, so not really my cup of tea.
