from a bottle this is a full bodied and full of roast black IPA. Its more on the dark and porter side, than the lighter IPA side. But it is full of flavor and delicious.

Better than I thought it would be. I really like the hop choices with this one. Very dank all around. Doesn’t really even taste that much like a black IPA as much as a normal IPA. You can taste some roastiness from the malts, but the hops really overwhelm this one, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing.
