4.69/5  rDev +13.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Served in taster and later from growler into mug. 8.2% ABV; 62 IBU
It pours dark with tame head - not black as a stout or porter but not a brown ale either. Looks ah-ight.
The smell is incredible with burnt pineapple, over-ripe mango, and cotton candy.
I could inhale this all day er, night. Ends with a little biscuity whiff.

The taste is sweet then dry then bitter with lingering spiciness and tongue tingling.

You might not guess its a black IPA from the taste ifyou didn't see it first - but then at the end there is a bit of a nice cocoa malt flavor at the end.

Its very smooth with small bubbles mingling with the bitter malty spiciness.

As close to waldo as you'll get in a bottle.

Serving type: growler

4.29/5  rDev +4.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

In the absence of light this has a deep, dark brown appearance. With bright light this has a deep ruby red color that darkens on the edges. Poured with a short, light beige foam that reduced to a thin cap that left sheets of sticky lacings on the glass. Dank, ripe citrus hop aromas along with earthy, grainy, roasted malt and fresh, resinous pine hop notes at the end. Full bodied, smooth creamy body up front that, resinous feel through the middle, and tangy, tight, carbonation from the middle to the end. Roasted malt and tropical citrus hop flavors up front with the hop flavor expanding into the middle. Pine hop flavors are introduced in the middle overtop the sturdy roasted malt backbone and slowly expand from the middle to the end. Finished cleanly with a lingering roasted malt and bitter hop aftertaste. Complex and enjoyable.
