Look: pours black with a extremely light brown head. Red highlights on the edge of the glass.
Smell: roasted malts. Coffee. Minimal tropical fruit.
Taste: roasted malts. Cold stale coffee.
Feel: medium carbonation. Thin mouthfeel. Slight dryness but I don't feel it's from the hops.
Overall: just not enough hops for me.alts are too over powering.
First drank: home 3/6/15

Last beer of the 4-way ipa variety pack, probably the best of the four. Dark brown pour with a nice tan head. Some coffee, roasted malts dominate with a hint of citrus and pine. Medium body, lively carbonation with a mildly bitter finish.
I guess I’m not much of a true ipa fan, I prefer the rye and black ipa’s over the more traditional brews. This one is very good. jhamp9 (1833) - Corinth, Texas, USA - FEB 28, 2015
Dark brown pour with a beige head. Tons of lacing. Aroma is citrus zest, pine, roast, and coffee. Taste follows the nose with chocolate coming through as well. Bitter pine and black coffee aftertaste. Pretty good. Westchesterco (2036) - mclean, Virginia, USA - FEB 28, 2015
Poured from a bottle it is a dark brown color with a slight head. The aroma is of coffee and the taste is of strong bitter roasted coffee Iphonephan (6951) - Jackson Hole/McLean, Virginia, USA - FEB 27, 2015
From a 12 oz bottle. Pours a clear dark cola with a tan head. Aroma of oranges. Flavors of tobacco and citrus. Bitter finish.

The boys from Chico don’t let you down this time either. Loaded with roasted black coffee and an everpresent bitterness that never overpowers. A solid late winter brew. bpar73 (1117) - Bellaire, Michigan, USA - FEB 22, 2015
Bottle. Pours black with an off white head. Pine & citrus hops and roasted malt in the aroma and taste. Nice bitterness throughout. matthewjk (1096) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 22, 2015
Another hybrid via Sierra Nevada. Nothing wrong here, just nothing that make me too happy. Very assertive hops, with an odd medicinal note. These black IPAs don’t always work. This one is okay. callmemickey (4542) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 21, 2015
Dark brown-black body, medium sized off-white/light tan head, dense lacing. Light roasted malts, a touch of coffee, earthy and piney hops as well as a touch of a citrus. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation, assertive bitterness, dry throughout, clean finish. bkurtz (1081) - MOROCCO - FEB 19, 2015
Bottle - Pours a clear, dark brown with a big, creamy, off-white head. Citrus aromas with some roasted malts. Nice toffee and coffee flavors with some citrus notes, finishing with some bitterness. Good combination of flavors that I like.
