This was a treat to try... definitely something I've been looking forward to having for a while. Opaque black with moderate tan head. Nose is citrusy with a moderate hop presence on top of a bit of coffee--a little weak for what I want, but not bad at all! Flavor is really nice with a big blast of citrus hops on top of an assertive coffee/roasted bitterness. Feel is light and drinkable, overall a good example of the style, worth a try.
Serving type: on-tap

4/5 rDev -2.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
Serving Type - 22oz bottle
Appearance - Dark Brown With black trace, 1 inch foamy head with some nice lacing.
Smell - Smoked malts, grapefruit hops, some coffee, minor chocolate, some brown sugar, molasses, some spices.
Taste - Starts off with a grapefruity hop bite, mixed with some coffee and smoked malts. A bit tart, plenty of dark fruits also like plum and raisin. Some molasses and brown sugar provide some minor sweetness. Some smokey notes and final kick of dark fruits round this out.
Mouthfeel - Hops start out and coat the tongue. Palate picks up smoky malts, sugars and more fruits. Aftertaste is bitter, coffee and malts.
Overall - Very good. Nice amount of hops, malts and coffee. Balanced well, nothing is overpowered but this beer comes up a little thin and weak. Still, very good, and recommended for the black ipa fans.
