Pours a hazy medium brownish amber color. Aroma is lightly malty, hoppy, yeasty, with a touch of fruit. Flavor is a nice mixture of malts and fruits.

On tap at Twisted Jimmyís (5/5/15). Fresh hoppy nose, floral and resiny. Smoky chocolate malt with some heavy aromas. Very fragrant. Dark black-brown opaque with light tan creamy lacing head. Medium-heavy body with medium carbonation. Starts moderately sweet with light tang, big hop flavor with chocolate and roasted malts. Molasses, coffee. Sweet tangy resin-like finish with roasted bitter after.

This black IPA poured a nice black colour with a really foamy, tan coloured head. Scents include grass, spruce and roasty malts. First swig was nice and roasty with a good balance between hop and roast. Finish was medium bitter with nice grassy notes lingering with the burntness...

Too damn piney. Tastes like a dark IPA or something. But hey, I don't like traditional IPAs so there's that.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rating #1275 - 07.10.2014 - On tap @revolutionyeg. Pours a California back alley black with a bubbly tan head. Aroma is a violent clash between toasted malt, and floral piney hops. Taste is extremely hoppy, tempered with a pleasant coffee, chocolate, burnt sugar sweetness that disguises any alcohol on the palate and rounds out the hoppy bitterness, and is beyond refreshing. Unreal hoppy black beauty.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Black hue, zero visibility with almost fully lasting frothy dark khaki head. Virtually no lacing. Aroma of citrus and dark roasted malts. Heavy citrus and coffee taste up front with more of a dark roasted malt finish. Slick mouth feel. I usually like most everything from Lagunitas but couldnít get into this one.

Bottle. This pours as frothy as any beer Iíve seen, deep black and piled with foam. This has an awesome "American" aroma of the outdoors. I canít say Iím a big fan of this new "black IPA" thing, but this is ultimately a good beer. I think Iíd call it a hoppy porter ... gritty, a bit smoky, but topped with some west coast.

Bottle. Pours a deep brown almost black colour with a beautiful medium tan head. Aroma is coffee, dark fruits, some chocolate, roasted malts. Taste to match. Very good.
