Pleasing frothy head on the dark reddish brown brew. Served in a pint shaker. Aroma of wine and cocoa, with flowery hops.
Warm and malty with a big aromatic mouthful of hops. Roasted malt flavors dominate with a big mellow caramel taste. The hops are moderately bitter but full of aromatics. Hints of wintergreen and ripe fruit. Tastes like some Citra hops with the limey tang, some dry pineapple, and a touch of pine.
This keeps coming back to the malty richness. A highly drinkable combo of dark malt with a hoppy intrigue. One of the best of the Black IPA style I've had. I'm always glad to see a more drinkable variety of the hoppy brews coming out of San Diego. On tap at Local Habit.
Serving type: on-tap
