On tap at the Barrel Republic.

Appearance: Opaque black-brown with a sudsy tan head that leaves streaks of lacing.

Aroma: Black IPA leaning towards herbal and low hops.

Flavor: Good hop/malt mix and balance. Better than the aroma suggests.

Feel: Medium+ body with good carbonation. Semi-dry.

O: Very good for style.

Poured into pint glass from bomber.

A-Overly heady when poured, several fingers of thick suds and large lace. Very dark with hint of amber around the edges when held up to the sun.

S-Piney, citrus, great hop aroma with a hint of roastiness.

T-More of the roastiness here with less of the fruit and some spiciness. Still some piney, green character as well.

M-Really nice. Fairly carbonated for a black ale (comparing to more traditional, less carbonated styles), medium body and drinks well for a "bigger guy."

O-I'm still new to rating the darker stuff and am more comfortable with my impressions of "regular" IPAs. However, I definitely enjoy this one and Firestone Walker never seems to let me down. Nice green hop aroma and taste balanced by some roast and spiciness from the malt.
