- very thick long lasting head light brown to a very opaque dark brown
- smell is a nice ipa smell but with roasted notes
- has a nice roasted sage flavor with some chocolate roasted malt taste and of course the none overbearing hops
-a little dry for a beer this dark but it doesn't take away from anything just liked the flavor and hoped it lingered a little longer
- Great beer from my home town, a great company and nailed it with this beer

Pours a dark, almost black, deep brown producing a huge 2+ finger, mocha, somewhat lasting head that leaves webby sheets of lace. Aroma dark malt, Hershey\'s & semisweet chocolate, toffee & faint smoke forward backed by citrus & pine hops. Taste dry & astringent, bitter chocolate, burnt, bitter coffee, phenolic, resinous hops. Finish is a continuation of the drying & astringent bitterness that intensifies & lingers long into the aftertaste.

Pours a very dark brown with an inch of tan foam and there's some nice lacing.

Very hop forward smell of grapefruit but has a sweetish side to it.

A very bitter first sip of grapefruit and grass, not getting any roasted malt at all but perhaps the slight sweet note or 2 could be chocolate. Hard for me to tell.

Medium body and carbo.

Best by June 12 and I reckon it would be fine even after that. My bottle, I bought at least a month ago.

Bottom line, this is super hoppy and super tasty. The abv is hidden well too. Worthy of repurchases.
