3.4/5  rDev -11.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Served in straight pint glass. Poured a solid black color with about 3/4 inch of dark tan head that had good retention and light lacing.

The aroma was an even blend of slightly roasty malts and citrusy hops. On the tongue the hops were brighter and stood out against the solid malts a bit better.

The body was nicely without being heavy. The roast taste lingers at the back, but the finish was still clean. Drinkability was good, especially considering that this is a style I don't really care for. Overall, a pretty good take on the style, worth trying when you see it.

Serving type: on-tap

A: Poured a deep brown with good carbonation leaving a nice dirty white cap

S: Citrus, some light pine, cocoa and roastiness. Pretty standard for the style

T: Starts with a nice roastiness, light cocoa and a somewhat creaminess transitioning into citrus and piney with coffee, roastiness and rather dry finish

M: Medium bodied, well carbonated, a light hop bitterness and creaminess on the palate

O: Not a bad CDA. I really enjoy Hoptopia so to have a CDA version of this was pretty nice. I would def drik again
