Parish Brewing Company - Dr. Hoptagon, poured into a Lawson's tulip.

Look - Pours a low viscosity translucent brown and settles jet black with no translucence. Nice off-white foamy head that retains some and leaves a ton of lacing. Great looking BIPA.

Smell - Aroma is quite juicy hoppy! The roasted malts are faint and the hops are juicy mango citrus and passion fruit.

Taste - Taste is roasted black malts that somewhat subdues the tropical hops you can taste back behind. Finishes bitter roast. The hop profile is awesome but unfortunately the burnt malt kills it here so much it's fleeting, not uncommon for black IPAs.

Mouthfeel - Heavy-medium body with moderate carbonation. Rests real toasty charcoal. Warm malty booziness. Decent drinkability.

Overall - This is a solid offering. I wish the nose, which was amazing, was more prominent in the taste and mouthfeel, but it was drowned out by roasted malts.

A-Foam came pouring out when opened. Black with a huge tan head that leaves no lace
S-Hops is strong and has a pine aroma also
T-Roasted malt with a strong hop aftertaste that fades back to a roasted malt finish
M-medium body and high carbonation
O-This was a different beer. The foam and carbonation made me have to wait to drink this one, but once I did it turned out to be a great beer
