A beautiful collabo from the fine folk at Rock Art.
Dark brown, nearly black liquid with a small crust of beige head cresting then subsiding, splashing a bit of lace on the goblet of choice.
Chocolate and tangerine aroma, some grapefruit as well. Pretty nice, perhaps the most subtle of hints at its 10% magnitude.
Rich and creamy chocolate with a citrus hop bite, decent front and back end bitterness. Sharp up front with a lingering rind at the end. Actually, this is damn nice. Medium bodied, luscious, dark, and hoppy? Yes, please. Well done, Rock Art, on a difficult style.

I gotta say, I like this beer WAY more than I thought I might. The big 10% ABV is masked beautifully and the hops come through very well without leaving too much bitterness. Overall this is such a smooth BDIPA. Only problem with this beer is that the brewing period is too short.

22oz bottle purchased as a single from somewhere in the Middlebury/Burlington area.
Poured into an imperial pint glass, formed a 1" dark tan head over the barely translucent dark reddish brown brew. Head collapses slowly, settling at a strong 1/2" and holding, with leggy lasting lace. Aroma is miminal.
Taste has a peek of sweet to start, an undercurrent of slightly acrid bitterness from stem to stern, a shot of dark fruit in the middle, and a cream yet more bitter close. Mouthfeel is pretty smooth, and drinkability is good. Never would have guessed this brew is 10%abv.
