A: a medium brown hue. head is rich and almost stout-like. retention is reasonable and the lacing is thick and sticky. also stout-like. wouldnt say it is a 'black' IPA, but certainly a dark brown IPA.
S: a blast of upfront, in your face, american grown hops. there is a very grainy, very toasty aspect in there as well, but this one is all about the hops.
T: the flavors on this thing are so much closer to a big AIPA than an black IPA. the hops are very much at the forefront of the palate and while yes, there is some roasted grain in there, it is not nearly as intense as your average black IPA.
M: moderate carbonation on a brew that is dancing on the line of medium and full bodied.
D: like i said in appearance, i wouldnt classify this as an american black as much as i would call it a very hoppy american brown ale. the hops are so refreshing and drinkable and with the roasted backdrop there is a really nice added dimension that gives this brew some depth. well done victory.
