4/5 rDev +5%
Poured from bottle. Aroma of coffee. Almost completely black, with minimal head. Mild taste. Full bodied, creamy texture. Overall a really great brew. I was tasting other IPA’s while drinking this so it tasted very much like a stout to me. I would be curious to try this with other stouts to make that comparison.

Good color, almost black. Head was about 2 fingers, maybe a little more. Head developed quickly and held for a decent amount of time. Flavor is malty with a little amount of hop bitterness to balance it out. Just a tad too sweet for me as far as IPA's go, but overall, a very nice, drinkable beer.......

Picked up a 12oz bottle while in Stowe vt on a heady topper expedition.
-Appearance- dark, dark, almost black, one finger tan head that quickly dissipated. Only light lacing
-Smell- very light citrus, I get almost a smoky malt aroma- not anything I have smelled before, kind of odd
-Taste- initial malt, a slight astringency (not unpleasant) from the dark malts, chocolate, coffee but a slight smokiness too. Finishes with citrus, grapefruit, lingering bitterness
-Mouthfeel- a little bit too much carbonation, with the hop and malt bite, foams a bit too much in my mouth
-Overall- my introduction to black ipa's, different for sure, not unpleasant but different. I wouldn't go out of my way to pick up this style again but it's good, -BMFR-
