Thanks a plenty to GrassrootsVT for this mighty tasty brew brought over from DK.

Pours a nice dark soft flow into my Mikkeller glass. The head froths up into a solid 3 finger head that settles into a solid toffee colored cap with high thick lacing. Color is deep black with light translucence coming through on the edges.

This bottling is several months old but is still piney, citrusy, bold and nice. Smells fresh and dank even thought it's not the freshest of beers. I would have loved to try this right off the tap. Really nice pine, citrus, resiny quality to the beer. It smells delicious and invites an excessive drink.

The beer overall is clean, fresh, dank and wonderful. Starts clean and piney with light citrus character. Middle is slightly bolder with chocolate notes and some roasted malt. But this beer is no doubt an IPA with strong qualities of hop and herbal notes. Finishes dry and clean with subtle roasted flavors that back up what is otherwise an impressive IPA.

Mouthfeel is clean, soft and pleasant. Carbonation is soft but ever present producing an effervescent body with soft sides and a fluid body. Really nice.

Yeah, I could drink A LOT of this beer. Thanks to Shaun Hill for this wonderful collaboration brew!

3.56/5  rDev -9.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Really just a ton of hops in the aroma. Piney, citrus, little marijuana, peach/mango, little pineapple. Tastes very hoppy as well. A lot of pine-citrus, hints of peach and mango. Good amount of bitterness. I just noticed a very slight hint of caramel that snuck in mid-way through. I'm really only noticing a light roasty quality in the aftertaste; really the only appearance of the "black" half of this other than the color. Maybe I need to let it warm more. I never know how to drink a black IPA, as I prefer IPA's colder and dark beers a fair amount warmer. Anyway, this easily falls way more on the IPA side flavor and aroma-wise.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

750ml bottle poured into a Jester King/Cantillon Zwanze Day tulip.

A~ pitch black with a big soapy like tan head. along with a lot of lacing.

S~ citrusy hops and dank grass up front. faint roasty malts in the background along with a bit of fresh coffee and dark chocolate.

T~ extremely citrusy from the hops. i'm guessing citra, simcoe, and nelson. nelson seems to add some amazing vomit like flavor haha a lot like a dark Enjoy By. (if there is nelson that is haha) the taste then proceeds to follow the nose with a ton of roasty malts, coffee, and dark bitter chocolate.

M~ nice silky smooth feel. with less hops this is what the original version of Daybreak should have been in my opinion. nice carbonation and refreshing as well.

O~ i'm actually very impressed by this colab. yesss.... it IS a Grassroots colab. haha super well balanced and honestly might be one of my favorite black IPA's. once again i'm biased cause this is one of my favorite styles. hence the high rating =]

3.71/5  rDev -5.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured vigorously into a lost abbey teku.

A: Pitch black body with a large light brown head that recedes quickly.

S: Citrus and pine followed by potent cocoa. Less hop forward than I would have expected but inviting nonetheless.

T: Light citrusy hops upfront, with bitter chocolate and coffee notes dominating. Assertive bitterness.

M: Light/medium body with an oily, mouth coating texture. Medium carbonation. Very drinkable.

O: Decent example of a black ipa. Dark malt flavors are definitely more prevalent than other examples of the style with hops taking a back seat. Bitterness was a tick high for the amount of hop flavor present.
