Bomber bottle served in a small tulip.

As usual for style, a bit of clash between the fall malts and the modestly high hop load. Despite a near equal (but hop favored) balance.
More hops present in the flavor than the aroma reveals, but still, this is no Stone Black IPA.

O. Decent version of style.

Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a very dark, almost black coloring with dark mahogany highlights, and a frothy, foamy, clingy, off-white head. Aromas of tart grapefruit, orange peel, chocolate, roasted coffee, and hints of smoke and char. Flavors are a good blend of roast and fruit forward, with a subtle coffee roast blending with grapefruit, tangerine, and lemon/lime. More resinous and piney notes build towards the end of the palate. Smooth, soft, slightly dry body, with a roasted, semisweet, and resinous aftertaste. The finish is smooth and dry, with a bitter and sweet blend lingering on.

Maybe I'm biased because I love Mastodon, but this is a really good IPA. Drink it if you dare.
