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.

First beer I can recall having from this brewery, which is always a fun thing and foments a sense of adventure.

Dark brown with dark red edges. The tan head settles gently, leaving a swaths of lace behind.

Deep roasted malts mingle with some piney hops, and generally get along all the way to the nose.

More roasted goodness floats across the tongue, followed by a lingering, earthy bitterness, a hint of grain and caramel and a slight dark fruitiness.

A medium-bodied and quite flavorable ABA
