Beer pours jet black with a sticky tan head.
Big and sticky hop aroma.
Beer is fairly balanced for a black IPA. A nice dark malt backbone well balanced with hops. Nice bitter hop finish without the harsh roast bitterness of dark hops.
Enjoyable black IPA, not my favorite style but this was well done.
