4.03/5  rDev -4.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

poured from a bomber into my arrogant bastard pint glass, black body with light reddish brown head. Leaves nice lacing and sticks around for quite a while in all it's beautiful creaminess.

Smell is very hop forward, I also get some chocolate and caramel malts there which add a burly backing of body to the bitter hopping that is asserting itself.

This beer is classic stone in flavor, the hops aren't floral and refreshing, they are bitter and wooded. The malt adds a nice thick grainy flavor to it, like dark rye bread sweetened with molasses and dark brown sugar. It's intense and pungent, in your face in the hop flavoring. It's balanced by a calmer thick smooth body that adds bulk and a great feel to the brew.

I recommend this brew to anyone who is an IPA fan, reminds me of a stone styled hop in the dark by Deschutes. A dark bodied malty sweet ipa instead of a lighter floral fruit-sweet ipa. A great contrast between the two styles and further defines the limits of what dark brews can taste like and what hoppy brews can look like.
