4.11/5  rDev -2.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Solid black with very good white foam. Decent lacing.

Smell: Strong pine and coffee. Very earthy.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Initially lots of strong Cascade hops. Finishes with strong coffee. A bit too bitter, but very enjoyable. Mouthfeel is surprisingly crisp, rather medium-bodied for a black ale.

Overall Drinkability: I would have liked some more roasty notes in this beer, but it works as an IPA.
