I poured a bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance- Dark brown color with a half a fingers worth of tan head.

Smell- Pine and grapefruit aromas.

Taste- Hop bitterness at the start that fades into dark roasted malt with spicy rye note throughout the swallow. Flavors blend together nicely.

Mouthfeel- Medium bodied with an average amount of carbonation. Smooth and crisp.

Overall- An easy drinking Black IPA. Easily in the top 3 of this style for me.

Serving type: bottle

4.43/5  rDev +4.2%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Appearance is dark brown to black with less than a finger of tan head. There is good retention to the head, however and it leaves rings on the glass that are almost as thick as those left by a nitro-tapped beer. There are certainly hops present in the nose, but there are also roasty notes that make for a complex olfactory experience. The flavor includes roasted malts combined with some decent hoppiness and accentuated well with a touch of smoke (a pleasant surprise). The finish is not super hoppy, but the bitterness is enough to round out an exceptional drinking experience.

Serving type: on-tap
