Pours like a thin brown ale with ruby edges and a one finger cream colored head. Aroma of orange peel and citrus hops, with some other spice aroma I assume is the chocolate. Flavor is toasty malts with a bitter--almost rye like--dry finish. Drinks like a black rye ipa. Medium bodied with plenty of carbonation. Actually not half bad, but certainly not chocolatey by any means.

A: Pours a clear chocolate brown with two fingers of eggshell head that fades into a thin cap with a little lacing.

S: Sweet nectarine-like hops up front with milk chocolate followed by earthy pine notes.

T: Earthy pine notes here as well with some citrus rind. The finish is more chocolaty, leaving a bitter cocoa and hop finish.

M: Medium body with lowish carbonation, this beer has an oily slick feel to it.

O: An enjoyable beer overall. There isn't much orange there, but a chocolaty IPA is an interesting and idea and mostly succeeds.
