Washington

2.98/5  rDev -28%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

On tap at brews on Washington in Spokane A: black, finger of tan foam, abysmal. Looks appropriate. Rings of lace. (3.5) S: coffee, citrus, resin, oats, robust porter like nose. A little hollow through the middle with soily, dry finish. (3) T: dry and muddled with coffee tones and nutty suggestions. Hops are bitter with some fruity and resiny notes. The juxtaposition of the profiles is a hare off. (3) M: full bodied with a little too much carb. Slick finish. (2.5) O: needs some tweaking, but a decent effort. (3)

Serving type: on-tap

Bottle picked up last night at Brewforia... shared with my bro. My share poured into my HotD goblet. Dark tan/lite brown head... beautiful lacing... good retention... the brew is pretty much black.

Nose is huge citrus.... a little bit of tropical fruitiness... Citra???? The roasty notes come swinging too, but this is about the hops aroma... very very nice.

Wow.. the flavor is a big contrast yet compliment... roasty and resinous.. citric and cocoa.. bitter hops up front melt into a completely balanced mix of roasty malts and zesty hops... a little fruitiness mid palate finishes with a nice coffee element and lingering citrus end. :30 second finish easily.

Very balanced... loving this one.

Drinks heavier than 6.7 ABV.. but no EtOH shows... the body is a plus side of medium, but the carbonation is perfect.

Again... loving this one... very very fresh... everything is spot-on.

4/4.5/4.5/4.5/4.5 and I think I may be on the low side. The only "Black IPA" that I've had that is close to this is the brews from Barley Brown.
