Searched for a while for this one. Many new beers take a while to get to my corner of the thumb.
A- Pours black with a light tan head, barely 1 finger thick. Webbing hangs on for quite some time
S- While you should expect a little roasty malt from this style, the hops really steal the show both here and in flavor. Very pine-forward aroma.
T- Almost instant hop eruption. Definite pine and citrus presence, possibly a mild earthiness. After it warms some, the roasty aspects come out of their shells and bring the whole thing together.
M- Appropriate for the style.
O- Definitely plays more like a DIPA than a regular black IPA. I'd say definitely worth a pick up

Great roasted malt flavor, mixes well with the strong hop flavor and aroma. Foam head was nothing special but the beer had a very good smell; floral hops with dark barley scent.
Leaves a bit of an aftertaste where you can tell there is a potent amount of alcohol. Overall, great beer to try.
Serving type: on-tap
