I am usually not a fan of the style but have heard good things from others that aren't fans. Pours black as night but the head shrinks fast and is a bit thin. Smell is sublime. Sweet tangy grapefruit with a touch of caramel malt and toffee. The main reason I usually don't like the style is because the chocolate malts overpower the rest but seems more into the IPA zone. The citrusy notes come through as more of an orange/lemon zest and this beast is bitter as hell! Very clean and easy drinking. I think I finally found one in this style I finally like. Carbonation is spot on as well as the downplayed alcohol although there is a touch of heat. Being only a month old probably helps too.
