Bottled 4/8/14.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. A foamy curtain of lace coats the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa powder, chocolate syrup, and slight citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with chocolate syrup, citrus juice, and citrus zest flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast and hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that has an interplay of cocoa and citrus characteristics that make this one almost like a chocolate orange candy all around.

Serving type: bottle.

22 purchased at Brewer's Haven Boise yesterday afternoon (but most of the bottleshops will have it too)... Enjoyed tonight from my Funk Fest tulip... Pours the expected black with a pillowy dark tan head... good lacing.

Nose is big pithy citrus hops with some lesser tropical fruity hops.. surprisingly there isn't a strong piney element.. roast malt element is present but only as a mild backdrop and allows the hops to play.

Flavor mirrors the aroma.. traditional Cali IPA bitterness is tempered by the roast malt and residual sugars... hop flavors are again bigger citrus and hints of tropical fruit.. burnt malt comes in on the finish and lingers pleasantly with the hops.

Big body ... No EtOH burn at all, surprisingly... pretty well done, that said I doubt I will buy again because there are too many other fantastic brews out there and I don't really appreciate this style too much.
