a well balanced and aggressive IPA

A - clear, pale, good head that does not fade quickly, and a small amount of lacing down the glass.

S - hop forward, but not sharp or biting. subtle malty background.

T - Wow, what an IPA. This has so much hop flavor, but it isn't overly bitter at all. I was loving the hops so much that I had a hard time concentrating on the malts. However, the malts where there in undertones for sure and balanced the beer nicely. wish i had more than a tasting poor of this one.

M - smooth and refreshing. This was an IPA that could be swished around a few times and it would continue to develop. The carbonation was perfect. it was definitely present, but not overpowering.

D - I would drink several of these at once if they weren't so darned expensive. $6.99 for a single 12oz. bottle. If they come down in price, I will buy some. a fantastic IPA that i am happy i had the chance to try!

Light on the nose, but perfect on the taste. Very toasty and even slightly smoky. Typical vanilla and cocoa nib notes.

No heat for a 10.0%abv noticed. As it warms up, the same. Only more smoke comes out of it.

Mouthfeel is a perfect stout.

Should've got yang too to see what kind of concoction would've been created.

I Love this beer. Got this with the Yang so that I could make a badass black and tan. Lots of dark chocolate, caramel, and dark fruits. It has a nice sweetness to it as well but the hops are pretty noticeable in this beer. Head retention was awesome and poured a light coffee color which notched all down the glass. Its a very impressive beer and its totally worth the 7.50 I paid for it.

I'm reviewing the Black and Tan, Yin and Yang. It's awesome. You should get both and do it because it's incredible. You can smell more hops than you could possibly hope for in a stout and more barley than you could ever wish for in an IPA. It's amazing- I highly recommend you get both and do it.
