Nearly black with a thick tan head.

Lots of grapefruit and citrus aroma with sappy pine, roasted malts, coffee.

More notes of pine and dry grapefruit with moderate bitterness, roasted character, very light smoke.

Slick, medium bodied.

Nice black ale but I wish the flavors developed more.

4.18/5  rDev -1.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Very dark copper brown. Ok lacing and very little foam.

Smell: Fruity rye, fairly rye-whiskey-like. Also very peppery.

Taste/Mouthfeel: The most licorice I've ever had in a beer, followed by plums. I like this a lot better in hindsight, making me want it again. Feels a bit thin and doesn't hold up to the flavor and smell.

Overall Drinkabiity: Another great example of a great style.

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.
