A- dark brown with red highlights shinning through, small amount of very light light brown head that doesn't last.

S- I'm getting pretty much all DIPA. Pine and citrus. Sweet sugary malt in the back that you get in those DIPA, a hint of that roasted malt when I swirl it around.

T- yup that's great. Nice hop profile of citrus orange and pine and resin that is balanced nicely by a nice roasted malt in the end. I'm getting more roast in the taste.

M- nice and creamy and alittle chewy and full

O- overall what a black IPA, or in this case "DIPA", should taste like, nice layers of complexity and they just nailed the style.

A thin, creamy beige head quickly diminishes above an opaque black beer.

Lightly toasted malt is joined by strong hop aromas of pine resin and orange.

Moderate bitterness, given the style, is highlighted by a light malt and strong hop flavors from a pint glass. A long, tingling finish.

This is a full bodied, smooth IPA with light carbonation. A dry finish with light metallic notes and moderate alcohol.

This beer would probably suit a calm environment with light conversation. This is one of those beers to be enjoyed only occasionally.
