This is a great Black IPA, and almost a "life saver" for me. I wasn't a fan of the style until being introduced to Cascadian Dark Ales (CDAs) in the PNW. Beers like Boneyard's Armored Fist and Barley Brown's Turmoil define the style in my opinion, or at least are representations that I really, really enjoy. After leaving Oregon, I knew I would miss these beers immensely.

This beer comes close to those beers, but does fall a little short for my palate. A little bit too roasty for me, but that's just me. Still a really good beer.

12 oz bottle. Pours dark brown with a big pillowy tan head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is acidic roast chocolate malt with fruity piney hops and a little smoke.

The flavor is sweet roasted acidic chocolate malts with some fruity piney hops and a bit of an ashy bitter finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, I'm liking this years version better than last year. Less sweet with more going on.
