12 FL. OZ. bottle
Served in a tulip glass

A - It is very dark with some ruby highlights. I got a tiny amount of tan head.

S - At first I just noticed a citrus aroma with a little roasted malt. As it warmed I got a coffee aroma.

T - As with the smell, I got a bunch of citrus at first with a little roasted malt. Once it warmed the coffee taste became apparent.

M - Medium

O - I didn't care for it until it warmed up and released some of the coffee aroma and taste. It is a good beer.

A - Pours pitch black with a foamy and bubbly khacki head - lacing is aplenty and head retains to a thin cap that resembles cake batter.

S - Malts, piney, citrus, fruity in the back layers.

T - Heavy malt forward quickly matched by the hop presence. Anise, citrus peel, dry bitter taste lingers on the palate.

O - Solid Black IPA - with a nice balance of malts and hops. I would get it again.
