4.43/5  rDev +8.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance- Very dark, almost black with some amber hints near the edges where light is creeping in.

Smell- Hop forward with citrus and pine. Reminds me of two hearted a little.

Taste- I get the same citrus as in the nose but there is a nice roasty burnt flavor. I would have expected more bitterness given the amount of hop flavor but it stays in check.

Mouthfeel- Nice medium body, doesn't stand out in a good or bad way.

Overall- This is probably my new favorite New Glarus and black IPA in general.
