3.94/5 rDev -7.3%
Served in a tulip. Pours the color and clarity of cola with a loose, tan-colored head that dissipates into a slick. Nose reveals huge citrus hops aromas and a hint of pine - not much about the malt profile is evident from the aromas. Aromas in the nose coalesce nicely with a rich, roasty malt profile. Mouthfeel is light-medium in body with a lively carbonation. Overall, a very hop-forward expression of the style and much less malt-centric than any example of the style that I have tried to date. A pretty interesting beer.

4.49/5 rDev +5.6%
A - Black, with a thick, fluffy mocha head that retains and laces very well.
Smell is pungent, bright and citrusy hops, slightly floral. Taste follows the nose, but it rounded out by a milk chocolate roast in the aftertaste.
Medium body, well carbonated, smooth. Lacks the overly resinous pine abrasiveness commonly found (at least to me) in others of the same style.
I was surprised how citrusy, tropical fruit forward this one was. Chocolate and slight roast flavors rounded it out at the end and the abv stayed well hidden. Although I'm not on-board with the style as a whole and the combination of flavors, this one was head and shoulders above every other Black IPA I've had, with the exception of Wookey Jack.
