Poured from a bomber into a true pint, the beer is jet black, with a thin, filmy, low profile, off-white head that clings to everything. Aromas of heavily roasted malt sweetness, with a piney, resiny, rich hops presence. Very subtle citrus scents, with hints of smoke as well. Flavors are roasty and malty on the forward tongue, with chocolatey notes and a creamy sweet backbone. Floral and citrus hops highlights, bringing a peppery spice and lightness to the beer. Very balanced, and leaves a great cling along the glass. Aftertaste of roast coffee, alpha acid, grapefruit, and pine. Tons of bitterness in the finish, leaving a drying, resiny lingering invitation to keep on drinking. Very tasty.

On tap at City a Beer Store San Francisco. Dark black color, looks like a stout. Aroma is mildly hoppy but mostly just dark malts. Flavor is more if the same. In fact this really felt like strong porter more than a black IPA which was fine with me as J didn't feel like the hops conflicted with the malts. Decent beer.
