Served in a cervoise at Tap House - Des Plaines.

After all of those Lips of Faith offerings, I figured I'd finish off my visit here with a local (-ish) black IPA. It pours a clear midnight sienna topped by a finger of slightly wan khaki foam. The nose comprises roasted malts, treacle, grapefruit zest, and pine resin. The taste brings in more of the same, the grapefruit melding nicely with the roast and the resin being offset by the treacle (and vice-versa). This isn't to say that there isn't any flavor-clashing going on here, just that it's muted than usual. The body is a lithe medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a drying finish. Overall, a pretty nice black IPA. 'Nuff said.
