Had on tap in a pint glass.
Arrived with no head and a nearly opaque very dark brown.
Definite citrus aroma along with lots of roasted malt and cocoa. A very nice malt/hop balance and the roastiness was quite nice.
The flavor continued the great balance between malt and hop with toast, caramel, and coffee along with a hefty punch of citrus from the hops. A moderate bitterness lingered through a sticky finish.
Overall, a really good black IPA. There are so many different variations on this style but Green Flash has really nailed it with this one.

Clear dark dark brown with a lovely aroma of herbal and grassy hops with dark sweet burnt caramel and roasty black malts. Flavor has some nice bitterness up front with some acidic pine and grapefruit, followed by some toastiness and roasted black malt. Sweet overall with a nice balancing resinous bitterness. Delightful.

Sampled on draft at Dad’s Pub & Grub this beer poured a black color with a large foamy brown head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was bitter and somewhat harsh with a floral hop element. The flavor was bitter and floral with a rough fruity hop presence followed by anise and a touch of roasty malts. Medium length floral hop and anise finish. Medium body. Meh. Tmoney99 (14368) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Draft. Poured clear black color with an average frothy tan head that lasted and produced excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy complex toasted earthy hop aroma. Medium to abundant body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a solid beer. Drake (13649) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 24, 2013
