Pours coffee black, the aroma is hop-forward without any spicy rye notes. The West Coast hop treatment eclipses the rye characteristic I would expect in a rye IPA.

Bottle to pint glass. Nice citrus and resin jump out of the glass. Black with brown head. Flavors of deep citrus with not too much roast. Nice.

Bottle from Champanes, this ale had a dark brown / black pour and gave a large, foamy coffee cream colored bubbled cover that receded a bit and left a sticky ring, it left nice lacing on the glass, it had aromas of roasted malt, grapefruit like citrus and grass hops, a little coffee and faint caramel, the roasted malt and citrus hops were out front on the nose, the flavors were roasted malt with grapefruit citrus hops, a little caramel and coffee with some malt sweetness, the finish had a good citrus hop bitterness with some roasted malt bitterness and malt following, the mouth feel was light to medium that was creamy on the lips and it had average carbonation, I thought this was a good typical black ipa, it was a nice drink.

Jet black and topped with a thick, khaki head and smelling deeply of roasted nuts and and toasted caramel. Lace is thick and sticky and supported by a heavy, black liquid; lightly bitter and slightly salty. Glides over my tongue and coats the inside of my mouth with a buzzy creaminess that is as enjoyable as I have experienced. This Midnight is going to be a favorite for a long time coming. I love everything about it and am looking forward to finding it again, very soon!

Bomber purchased at BevMo in Carmel Mountain ($7.69). Pours an inky black color with a full three fingers of tan-brown foam with good retention. AROMA is mostly of hops (pine, dank hops, citrus) with a bit of rye bread and charred malts. FLAVOR of dark roasty malts (hint of cocoa), nice citric hops, spicy rye, and pine sap. Hops beat out the roast in the nose, but the flavor has a good balance between the hops and roast. Finishes with moderate bitterness and some lingering roastiness and sweet citrus. A good and balanced take on the style. (51, 868)

Awesome black IPA. Although, it tastes more like a stout than an IPA. The IPA aromas really come through, though. Itís awesome

Draft at original gravity, poured black small to medium head. Aromas are pussy, dank hops, oats. Flavor is the same with pineapple, grapefruit, and dark and roasty malt. Overall this is awesomely hoppy for the appearance.
