Had on tap at brewery, poured into 16oz snifter.

A - Obsidian, like staring into the abyss black. Thin 1 finger tan head and some spotty lacing.

S - Hello Citra hops! Resinous, grapefruit and pine hop aroma sitting on top of a roasty malts. The scent is quite pleasing.

T - Yes, Citra hops jump out right away with citrus bitterness, pine, and earthy tones. They yield to the darker roasty malts on the palette along with bitter chocolate and some sweet caramel. The bitterness and hop flavors that are noticeable in the beginning make another appearance in the finish.

M - Medium and creamy mouthfeel with very nice carbonation.

O - Wow, this is now my favorite BIPA and would probably rival Lakefronts Black Friday addition. It is better than LF IBA and NG Blacktop. It is so good that I will be excited when it makes it to bottles in 2015. The Citra hops play so well with the roasted and sweet malts.
