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.

Not quite black, but more of a very dark brown. Not particularly heavy or thick in body, but moderate. Nice sticky lacing left down the glass. A pretty enough black IPA; above average.
Nice amount of roast and a slight char character in the aroma. Very mild, muted hops. Simple and straightforward. Not unpleasant, but unexciting.
The flavor follows the aroma. The flavor is dominated by mild roast notes and just a hint of char and the slightest of smoke. Very mild pine hop character. Drinkable enough, but very unexciting.
Medium bodied with moderate-high carbonation.
A decent black beer, but really quite boring. Firestone Walker, for example, does a much, much better take on this style. There's really nothing IPA about this beer at all.
