A dark black brown color with a very healthy tan head and lots of lacing. The aroma offers a minty evergreen with herbal hop balance. Very enticing. The flavor brings lots of green leaf bitterness and watery malt. I get some very mild molasses with a hint of charcoal bite and lemony freshness. Flavorful enough but a tad watery in feel with a light-plus body constitution and mild carbonation. A little more body and a little more hop profile would have helped what is otherwise an average black ipa. I expected more from Wormtown but nothing bad here, well worth a try.

Thanks to Kevin for sharing this.

Pours a dark brown with a beige head that retains well, leaves good lace.

All sharp hops in the scent, an odd mix of danky, herbal, minty. Not much blackness to speak of.

Taste is a bit more balanced but this is quite big on the hops, not so much on the black. A decent plethora of grapefruit, grassy, earthy, citrus. Some dark caramel malts and dark fruit.

Solid mouthfeel, good carbonation level and pretty easy drinking.

Kind of a weird hop profile to me but pretty decent overall, not your typical black IPA.

A- Black but not oily thick midnight black, just on the cusp of blackened. White foamy head forms to about a finger with OK retention.

S- Hops take precedence but they are hard to describe to me. Not much roast or malts in general. Has a big general berry note to me with herbal, citrus and floral as well. Slight cereal grains.

T- Again the hops hit me with a big fruity herbal thing that feels like berries. Somewhat floral and earthy too. Pineapple and intense orange peel open up with warmth. Cocoa, cereal grains and caramel as well.

MF- Moderate carbonation in a standard body of IPA thickness. Lighter end bitterness in the finish.

Solid Black IPA but there isn't as rich of a base beer compared to others.

22oz bottle purchased as a single from somewhere localish.

Poured into a CCB pub glass, formed a 1/2" tan head over the clear burgundy brew. Head recedes gradually, with frothy lacing. Aroma is roasted grains and pine.

Taste is rich sweetness upfront, light pine in the middle, and a rounded bitterness through the close. Mouthfeel is soft and smooth, and drinkability is good. Looking forward to the second bottle I have in the fridge.
