A pretty bitter beer here. I really enjoy the Blackheart. It is kind of one of the bastards from Floyd's. There is not a huge demand for it. I don't know why? I think it is a amazing beer. Great hop notes on the nose and a strong hopped taste as I mentioned the bitter. I wouldn't pass this one up as it is very consistent every year as well.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Received in trade. Stored at 34F. Poured into snifter.

A: Clear, golden amber appearance, with an inch of white head that quickly dissipated into a lacing that lasted throughout the session.

S: Grassy, lemony, light.

T: Upfront with the hops, but with a strong malty, sweet caramel backbone.

M: Thin going in, but it creates a thick after feel coating from the response to the hoppiness.

O: Great beer. Different than the typical DIPA, with a lighter, crisper more flora and lemony bite.

Serving type: bottle
