Smell is coffee, toffee, chocolate, earthy hops, pine, and some hints of citrus.

Taste starts with some nice expresso toffee flavors and finishes with a huge burst of citrus grapefruit that really lingers on the palate awhile.

Body is medium, plenty of life, a little dry, and easy drinking.

Overall I love it. What I would expect from one of my favorite brewers of hoppy goodness.

Serving type: on-tap

Pores a pretty much black body with one finger tan head and left lace patches. The aroma is mostly piney, citric hops with minor roasted malt notes in the background. Full bodied and slightly chewy, the hops are strong and this beer is more hoppy than malty, not that the balance is totally askew. The roasted malts are evident and there is a slight biscuit feeling along with sweetness, but mostly I get the strong hop presence in this beer. I really like this ale as I prefer black ipas that are hoppier than what is usual of style.

First, an aside: BJCP should fix the naming of this category. The debate is long over, "IPA" sells!

Anyway, this one pours a mostly clear dark orange edged dark brown with billowing tan colored head. Big pillows of foam clinging to the glass, with a half inch of head staying for the remainder. Smell: pine, grapefruit peel, dried apricot, toffee note. Taste: sugary into roasty and caraway notes quickly overtaken by pine and grapefruit peel. It's over quickly. Nice example but not a standout for me. Best by 7/21/14.
