2015 bottle. Pours a vary dark brown with a foamy tan head and sticky lacing. Aroma is bright herbal hops on a bed of earthy sweet malt. Taste is a lightly sweet roasted malt with grassy and earthy hops. Big bitterness but it's tempered by the malt. A little bit of dark chocolate. Medium, slightly astringent mouthfeel.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a very dark brown with an inch of tan foam and there’s some nice lacing.
Very hop forward smell of grapefruit but has a sweetish side to it.
A very bitter first sip of grapefruit and grass, not getting any roasted malt at all but perhaps the slight sweet note or 2 could be chocolate. Hard for me to tell.
Medium body and carbo.
Best by June 12 and I reckon it would be fine even after that. My bottle, I bought at least a month ago.
Bottom line, this is super hoppy and super tasty. The abv is hidden well too. Worthy of repurchases.

Really nice black IIPA. Pours very dark with a tan head. The aroma has roasty cocoa maltiness, dark caramel, grapefruit,, pine and a bit of dank and tropical hops. It has a medium / full body with some bite to it and light frothy carbonation. The flavor begins with grapefruit, earthy / woody hops, spice, roasty malt with some cocoa notes and a bit of nectar fruit. The finish is very bitter and hoppy. Really great example of the style. Tastes like what it says and not just like a hoppy stout.

Poured from the bottle of the 4-pack into the pint glass. This is a mind and taste bud confusing beer, It looks like a Guinness but has the taste of a mighty fine Double IPA with a touch more malt. I would call this a hybrid strong IPA stout, I hope the hemp doesn’t cause me to fail my next drug test, but if it does I’ll just sit home all day and drink this.
