4.19/5 rDev -1.4%
On-tap at the brewpub
A dark brown, almost black pour with a tight, creamy off-white cap. Some good retention as it never truly faded, settling to a thin layer of foam with some spotty lace.
Piney hops with some mild citrus over top. Lightly roasted malt with a bit of cocoa powder laying low. Nicely hopped, vibrant aroma.
Nigel slides onto the palate. Piney hops greet you first. Resiny notes. Mild roast and cocoa powder through the middle. The finish is a moderate bitterness of pine resin and mild grapefruit.
Medium bodied and smooth. A tad below creamy. Dry finish, with a bit of resiny stickiness left behind.
A damn fine dark IPA. Solid hop presence with malt bill that isn't too roasty and stays out of the way.

First had: on tap at the brewpub
We've got, you know, amarillos in our trousers.
But seriously, folks...
Dark brown-black pour, with a small tan head that receded to a ringlet, leaving spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma was a bit distant, with notes of dark malts and light citrusy hops coming through. Taste was fairly mild compared to other beers of the style, which is actually not a bad thing. Taste of grapefruity hops, dark malts, fairly roasty, dark bread, some piney bitterness in the finish. On the lighter side of medium-bodied, and a nice drink overall.

A- Dark brown, almost black body with a frothy tan. Good lacing, nice appearance.
S- Tropical fruits, roasted malt. Grapefruit and citrus come through a lot.
T- An extremely tropical black IPA. Huge fruity hop flavors with some roasted malt and chocolate malt coming through as it warms.
M- Medium bodied, perfect carbonation, really drinkable.
O- A great beer. Roasted malt, huge hops, great.
