3.4/5 rDev -18.5%
Appearance: a deep brown. looks black through middle but brown along edges. almost opaque but not quite. finger of a foamy head that leaves a bit of a lacing
Smell: hops, citrus and pine. roasty malts.
Taste: opens up with a lighter pine hop, this gives way to a blended taste of citrus and roasted malts, chocolate takes up the back end
Mouthfeel: kinda light. some bitterness and roastiness left behind
Overall: A pretty decent beer. I thought about liking it for a few sips but i just can't stand the flavor combo

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.
