The piny, floral aroma is rich but not too aggressive. The flavor contains pine, tobacco, resin, rye, and wheat bran. It is smoky, lightly acidic, and nicely balanced with no screwy sweet notes. Black IPA isn’t my favorite style, but this is a good one.

Color caoba oscuro con densa espuma beige. Aromas de frutas tropicales, pino y tostados. Cuerpo medio con inicio afrutado y lúpulo "picante" con un final amargo, seco y resinoso. Excelente.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
7/10/14. Bomber. Pours black with a light mocha head that gives nice lacing. Nice hop nose but not overwhelming. Disappointing mouth with not much complexity. Mild roasty and hop notes but not real interesting. Classic West Coast profile but nothing that sets it apart.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz. bottle, best by 7/21/14, has been kept refrigerated, though. Aroma of lightly roasty, gently sweet malts and fruity, piney hops, with notes of milk chocolate, citrus, black bread and a touch of grapefruit, along with a certain pungency in the background. Clear deep, dark brown in color, nearly black, with a lasting, creamy, fine, beige head. Flavor profile is fairly complex and well-balanced, with suggestions of rich, dark, roasty and sweet malts, piney, citric and generously bitter hops, finishing with a blend of malt toast and mild tropical fruit, some floral tones and faint bubblegum underneath here as well. Smooth, full, resinous and lushly effervescent on the palate with a medium-full body. Very nicely put together, great example of the style.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft: Strong grapefruit and tangerine aroma. If I closed my eyes I wouldn’t gues this is an IDA, save for a subtle soil note. Clear ruby black, thin tan head. Charcoal, grapefruit, and onion flavor. Brief appearanc of rosehips in the end that isn’t evident within the sronger malt notes. Good mix of hop and roast biterness. Light body, harshly fizzy. Pretty intense, not quaffable.
