A: deep brown with ruby clearly visible at the edges; 1+ finger light brown head that receded slowly to a thin cap; very nice lacing;

S: piney hops with citrus in the background;

T: deeply roasted grain up front; citrus at mid-palate; smokiness from mid-palate through the finish; moderate bitterness at the finish; smokiness lasts a long time;

O: wow, is this good!

Bottle.
Appearance: cola. Dark and a bit fizzy. Deep ruby red when held to light. Clear. Thin head.
Smell: not much there. A little citrus.
Taste: ever so slight on the roasted barley. Fruity hop flavor. Spicy rye at the back end.
Mouthfeel: medium carbonation and medium body. On the dry side.
Overall: I typically do not like dark ipa. This is an exception. Not a lot of roast. No harsh bitterness from the dark grain. Will buy again.
