A- Pours a nice rich smooth brown, sits quite dark. A nice light mocha head that leaves sticky lacing. Lots of carb stick to side of glass.
S- A nice whiff of grapefruit with piney hops following. A nice stiff roasted coffee with some sweet chocolate. Smells really fresh.
T- Bam! Chocolate and hops. Bitter coffee shows up shortly after. Hops are similar to smell. A crisp citrus stand out against the dark roasted notes. A slight cola taste when first cold also.
M- The strong bitterness really lingers. Med-big body. A full intense flavor on palate. The hops and coffee bitterness crate a decent tang.
O- A really good ABA. I was impressed by this offering from peak organic. The hops could have actually mellowed over time and still been great.

Pours a dark chocolate black with raspberry red highlights when held to light. Nice coffee colored fluffy two finger head leaves a thick lace and is slow to recede.
Smells of dark roasted malts, dry cherries and sweet raspberry. Moderate dank pine, and wheat bread crust.
Tastes of bright toasty malts with touch of malt sweetness, dry cherries, and raspberry sweetness, follows the nose well. Mild evergreen hop bitter with a smoky dry chalk middle. A touch of burnt malts on the finish with a tiny bit of metallic tinge.
Feels smooth up front turning thin, with a bit of smoke, and burnt malts, thinning out the carbonation
Overall a pleasant sweetness balanced by a touch of smoke and slightly burnt malts, light in general but good and refreshing dark IPA.
