Picked this up in a trade with bfg75! Dark brown, almost black pour with a big two finger off white head with great retention and lacing. Glorious nose with loads of piney, resiny hops to complement the rye, which was a little more subdued than I would have expected. Roasty malt with hints of cocoa balance it out nicely. The taste is just as bold as the nose. Tons of resiny, piney, citrus hops are balanced perfectly with a solid roasty malt backbone with hints of caramel and cocoa. The rye is once again subdued, but definitely adds a unique twist to your typical Black IPA. The mouthfeel is smooth and creamy with a nice bitter hop finish. Drinkability is off the charts on this one! Probably the most balanced Black IPA I've tasted to date, maybe even the best overall. Another amazing beer from one of my favorite breweries! Thanks to Ben for hooking me up with this one!!!
