Enjoy By: 01/22/15

A: Pours a near black color with 2+ fingers of tan head that very slowly fades down to a nice fluffy cap that leaves some nice lacing

S: Nice and hoppy along with a decent amount of roast up front. Hops are lightly citrusy and piney, with a bit of earthiness. Also get some dark chocolate in there, made a little sweeter from the crystal malt

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with the roasted malts and citrus and pine notes. This is followed by some mild sweetness and earthiness. Finishes with a moderate bitterness and more roast

M: Medium-full bodied with low-moderate carbonation. Very smooth, nearing on creamy

O: A very drinkable and enjoyable black IPA. Not over the top with bitterness or hops, it is extremely well balanced and does a great job getting the most out of both malt and hops. A nice surprise
