22 oz. Bomber from Bevmo! for 5 bucks!
A: Jet black with an aggressive cream head! Great retention on this one!
S: Outstanding! One of the best smelling beers I've ever had! Getting tons of citrus, pine and oak! Pineapple, pine needles, peach, green apple, green grape, and orange!
Taste: Of the top comes a sweet malt that flows into a rye spicyness! Then comes the hops to give it that nice bitter IPA punch! Getting sweet malt, rye, Granny Smith, pineapple, orange, grapefruit, and a slight mellow oak ending! Reaches an almost cask like finish!
Mouthfeel: Rye spice to begin but mellows out to an almost creaminess! Supe smooth and goes down easy! Perfect carbonation!
O: Might seem like I'm gushing on this one but I truly enjoyed it this much! One of the best and most unique IPAs I've had! Black/rye IPAs are coming to be some what normal but this blows everything I've had in that category out of the water! Bench mark in IPAs and dominates the Black/rye IPA field for me! Do yourself a favor and pick this beauty up!
Edit: Had it on tap at Firestone Taproom and while the oak flavors are more hidden the freshness is incredible! Outstanding both ways! My taste buds would melt if I could find this one on cask!
