A-deep almost black with a ruby hue. Creamy tan head with nice retention and lacing

S-roast malt and grapefruit and pine hops

T- deep malt flavors balance well against the hops

M- smooth with a slight hops bite/crisp finish

O- a great black IPA with a good malt/hops balance

This one pours a nice clear dark brown in color, not black and has a tall thin head that settles quickly leaving a thin lacing down the glass.

The nose is smokey and tart with notes of earth, grass, pine vanilla, camphor and dark chocolate.

The taste is fairly good with a nice crisp and bitter that last from start to finish that has notes of dark chocolate, coffee, grass, pine, dry malt and nutmeg.

The mouthfell is a tad watery but acceptable.

Overall this is a good and drinkable beer. I am definitely enjoying it.

12 oz can poured in a nonic pint glass. Purchased on my trip to New Orleans at the end of March.

Pours pitch black, but allows some cola highlights through when held to the light. Beige head is 1/2 inch on the pour but recedes to a thin cap. Lines of lacing left with every sip.

Nice aroma of citrus hops with a little burnt malt in the background.

Yummy blend of citrus and floral hops with dark and burnt malts. Grapefruit, pine, chocolate, coffee.

Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. This is a pretty straight forward brew without much complexity, but very tasty.
