A- A clear black with a amber hue. A light finger high tan head, that still there after 4-5 minutes.

S- Piney hops, some oak, and light smokiness.

T- Grapefruit, orange peel, lighter hops than on the nose, some bitterness, but not strong, nice clean taste. Nice balance, really tasty

M- Medium body, light creamy and smooth. Very easy to drink.

O- This one grabbed my attention on the first sip, this Is a really good beer moved right up on my Black IPA list to "keep in stock" lol. There is a lot more citris going on than what the smell leads on. I highly recommend this one if you are a fan of Black IPAs.

Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at his tasting.

Pours a clear dark brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of roasted malt, cocoa, and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa and citrus zest flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast and hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a nice citrus hop presence that comes through slightly better in the taste.
