Notes/Commercial Description:
A hoppy black IPA bursting with so much flavor that you might think you’re tasting double. Intensely floral nose, surprisingly light body, and strong bitter finish.

Poured into a standard pint glass: color is black, solid; head is tan, presents a little more than 1/4 inch thick, then dissipates to larger bubbles and froth, some lacing on the glass.

Smell is a little subdued, moderate roast, some caramel, some toast; hops are subtle, light pine and grass.

Taste is quite good considering this brews abv, heavier roasted malt upfront, some toast follows then the hops clean it up, good pine and grass.

Mouthfeel was a bit dry, but seems about right for the abv strength.

Overall, a very good brew, nice flavors and cover the strength well. Nice roast presence and good hop flavor.
