On draft at Yard House. Pours a dense black. Aroma is hops and malt. Taste comes in the opposite order -- malt comes first with a long, strong hoppy finish. Comparable to the Wookie Jack, though not quite as good.

Aromas of urinal cake. Not sure what it is with most Black IPA. But the scent is nothing I typically enjoy, thus making the whole brew less than enjoyable. 12/13
