Rich and dark like a porter or stout.

Subtle hops, very drinkable and delicious

A: deep brown; 1 finger light brown head that receded to a thick collar; very nice lacing;

S: really well balanced; tropical fruit hoppiness with roasted grain in the background;

T: balanced with piney hops and roasted grains; bitterness builds from mid-palate through the long finish;

M: medium bodied; moderate carbonation;

O: as good as it is, I remember it having more hops in the taste and I miss that;

Dark, sweet, vanilla notes, chocolate flavor, spices (chicory?), balanced and smooth with a somewhat peaty and toasted malt finish that reminds one of a hearty stout. 8.6/10 not spectacular and doesn't remind one of an IPA, where are the hops?
