A- Pours dark brown with a 1.5 finger fluffy off-white head. Really settles nicely around the edge

S- Clean citrus of bitter grapefruit. Fresh cut pine. Caramel and molasses malt base. Not the most pungent, but clearly an IPA

T- Flavor profile not as discernible as the aroma. Sweet and hoppy up front before mellowing out some. A musky, minty, spice thrown in there as it finishes bitter.

M- Sticky and resinous. Sits a little heavy. Solid, but not quite as crisp as I would prefer.

O- A great example of a black IPA. Love the bright citrus character. Another great showing from a brewery that really impresses me.
