Served from a 22 oz bomber into an imperial pint glass.
A: Deep dark black with a thick, creamy 2" head that lingers for several minutes. Seriously frothy lacing that lasts and lasts.
S: An intoxicating blend of boozy malt and piney bitter hops
T: A sweet malty lead that is quickly cut by a complex blend of hops. No one hop characteristic stands out, but it balances the malt perfectly.
M: Creamier than I would expect from an IPA, but a solid level of carbonation brings the bitterness to the fore.
O: An outstanding beer. The first black rye-based IPA I've had that actually used the rye to great effect. It offers a nice, crisp dry character and a richness that truly makes this beer unique.
