Black IPAs or whatever the hell they're called this week are still en vogue. Though I'm still waiting for an all-Citra BIPA that straddles both bandwagons.

It's a fair beer; it's fairly black, there's a fair bite to it with fairly robust citrics. It just doesn't shine as much as other Kernel IPAs; it's more the moody teenager than the ebulliant toddler. (387 characters)
