Other than stone sublimely self righteous this is the only black IPA I really took s liking to. Strange aroma of fruit lavender and toasted dark malt equalling the pine hops. That aroma is good even if I did not describe it well. The taste is dark chocolate subtle fruitiness and pine citrus hop undertones. Technically a hop bomb but nice and malty without being cloying or too much. Just right for me. I feel I noticed the creaminess the hemp seeds are supposed to give this beer.

12oz bottle @ home, thanks to Douglas88. Pours very dark brown - almost black with an off-white head that leaves thick lacing. Aroma is citrus, pine and roasted malt. Flavour is medium sweet and very bitter, there’s some roastiness, coffee, liquorice, pine and chocolate. Medium body, fizzy carbonation and a roasted and resinous finish.

12 oz bottle purchased as a single at the Whole Foods in Coral Springs, Florida. Best before 1 7 15. The pour is cola brown golden with a tan head. The aroma is roast, pine hop, resin and a soft vanilla. The taste is the roast malt up front, pine hop close behind, a touch of cocoa and a bit of soy. The palate is medium bodied, slick mouth feel and some heat in back. Solid.

Pours a nearly opaque dark reddish brown with a sizable light tan head. Aroma is a handful of hop cones. Taste is sweet roasted malt, molasses, burnt licorice and bitter dark roasted coffee beans. ABV goes unnoticed. Not the hop head I once was, but this is pretty easy drinking for 109 IBU.
