3.33/5  rDev -9.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Sampled this one not too long ago at The Blind Tiger, NYC. Poured black, with less than a finger of off-white head; average retention and lacing, and modestly visible carbonation. Smelled of citrus hops; piney and bitter peel, though not overly pungent. The taste was surprisingly thin in flavor, starting on a citrus note, and then devolving to a thin, modestly dry finish. Very thin texture in general too, with a hint of carbonation. Aside from the well-hidden nature of the alcohol content, I found this to be a lackluster example of the style.

Serving type: on-tap

3.56/5  rDev -3.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

The beer comes in a dark brown with a light brown head.

The aroma has grapefruit, pine, and some sweet roasted malt.

The flavor has lots of pine and herbal with a rounding roasted malt. The beer has a substantial malt backbone for a hoppy brew with a touch of roasted malt quality in there.

A reasonably well made black IPA.

Serving type: can
