3.53/5 rDev -9.5%
Served in a tulip pint glass at Beelow's.
Had some time to kill between flicks, so I figured I'd grab a pint or two at Beelow's, starting with this one. It pours a deep midnight garnet topped by a finger of wan slate foam. The nose comprises pine resin, blackened pretzels, and a touch of dark chocolate syrup. The taste opens with a gush of pine resin, pine needles, and a hint of grapefruit peel. This is then followed by a comparatively mild (very mild, in fact) wave of pretzel, chocolate malt, and char. Surprisingly, especially given those descriptors, the combination is fairly pleasant, if decidedly unbalanced. The body is a lithe medium, with a light moderated carbonation and a sorta/kinda drying finish. Overall, not a bad quaff, too unbalanced to be a great black IPA, but something in the category I may actually want to have again.

4.16/5 rDev +6.7%
A dark brown / black in color with 2 fingers of head, slow dissipation and great lacing. Smells of roasted grains, coffee, and tangy citrus/pine coming from the hops. The flavor is nicely balanced.. A lot of grapefruit from the hops, as Chocolatey sweetness from the malt. A bit strange at first but works perfectly together. This is the most citrusy of all black ipa's I've had.
Medium in body and silky smooth.. Modest carbonation.
A really good black ipa.. For fans of citrusy ipa.. And stouts!

A - 22oz bottle to DFH signature glass. 1 finger white head. Beer is very dark brown to black
S - citrus fruits dominate-tangerine, grapefruit , very slight roasty smell
T - Starts off with a nice hoppy bite but balanced well with some roasted malts, finish is a nice light bitter
M - good carb , medium body, dry finish
O - great example of the style and a very enjoyable beer. Borderline sessionable, should have no problem knocking down this bomber.
