3.54/5 rDev -3.8%
Smells of hops and slight roasted malt. Tastes pretty much like the aroma. A little bit of hops up front with some nice balance from the roasted malt. It is pretty thin and easy drinking. Not real hoppy and not a ton of flavor, but nicely balanced and well done. I would call it a slightly hoppy, light bodied Schwartz. At 6.8%, you could get in trouble with these! Overall, a good beer that I would buy again and would be a nice offering for non IPA people.

3.43/5 rDev -6.8%
Poured into a Duvel Tulip at cellar temps.
A: Black, pitch black. Nice rocky head dissipates ultimately to a 1 mm solid disk. No lacing to speak of, wispy at best.
S: Weakly malty with a hint of hops. Neutral yeast indicators, not pronounced. Mild.
T: A kiss of hops up front, slightly bitter and very mild. The malt is definitely roasty and good. Just wish the hops were a little more pronounced. This reminds me of a slightly hoppier Schwarzbier, too. Lemony finish so there's some hops doing something kinda back-sliding in at the finish.
M: Thin. Very poundable and dangerous given the ABV. Light on the palate. Chocolatey finish. Like bitter, ephemeral chocolates.
O: I like it for what it is, a very smooth, quaffable brew that is kind of true to the style, which I consider an ANTI IPA style. Like "hey, we're calling this IPA but really is a hoppy Schwarz". Regardless I like it.

Pours a dark clear brown with a light tan head. The head has moderate retention but leaves some soapy lacing on the glass. The aroma is very roasted, much more reminiscent of a schwarzbier, with only a hint of hops. Its a nice aroma, but not very IPA-ish. The taste is equally close to a schwarzbier. Delicious, but not really an IPA. There's a nice feel to the body and it's nice a smooth. If this weren't billed as an IPA, I think it would get a much higher rating. It has a great flavor but it doesn't even closely resemble one.
