Brewery says this is made with dark roast wheat malt. Hops are Simcoe and Crystal. Very dark mahogany color in the glass. Less fully carbonated than average; pours with little head. Very fragrant with the spicy and flowery hops. Not particularly bitter, certainly not in the usual IPA sense. I will have to disagree and call this an American Black Ale and it would make a good showing in that category.

At Local Habit in San Diego, where they say they occasionally have a Hess beer on tap, but the brewery is pretty low production for now. Definitely clean and promising beers. (578 characters)

On tap at Hess

A: Deep crimson tinged brown in the glass with a froth of brown sea foam rising an inch above the liquid.

S: An aromatic blend of pine, grapefruit, and orange, with near balancing roasted malt. Perfumy and floral with light chocolate notes.

T: Sweeter than I expected, with almost a sugary quality. A dry moderate bitterness accompanies notes of pine and orange pith. Malt is roasted with a dash of chocolate. The finish is bitter and lightly roasted with some evident astringency. Bitterness is pithy and dry.

M: Upper medium body with carbonation to match. Mouthfeel is smooth and sticky.

Overall: A solid effort. The flavor failed to match the implied promise of the aroma.   (710 characters)
