A very dense frothy head. Wonderful aroma. Taste is a rich, roasted malt coupled with bitter hops. A perfect beer. Love the black IPA style!

Pours pitch black with a nice milk chocolate colored head. It has a sweet, dark, and hoppy aroma. It starts off piney with hints of sweet chocolate with a bitter floral aftertaste. An excellent black IPA!

Intensive hoppy citrus and roasted malt aroma. Dark brown almost black body. Medium size long-lasting brown head with good lacing. Strong hoppy bitterness in taste with medium sweetness. Citrus fruits with toffe. Long-lasting bitter mouthfell. Definetly one of the best CDA’s.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 16, 2014 Aroma of citrus and malts. Pours an opaque black with a mostly dissipating khaki head and sparse lacing. The taste is malt up front with a hint of white fruit in the middle and a wonderful grapefruit hoppy taste in the finish. Medium body with medium carbonation. Overall, this is an excellent beer. Will drink again. Good job, Sierra Nevada!.

Pours a dark mahogany with a thick, light tan head. Smoky, woody, roast malt aroma has hint of coffee - and a lot of appeal. Hoppy, woody, smoky flavor features a touch of mocha. This beer successfully blends the characteristics of a good IPA and a quality stout. Smooth ,fizzy texture rounds out another winner from Sierra Nevada.

Very good beer although not much in the way of flavor or Aroma hops. Great appearance, thick luscious cream colored long-lasting head and lots of lace. ARoma is toasty malt and a little hop. Flavor is like aRoma, seems more like a black pale ale then a black IPA. Excellent body. Super drinkable.
