22oz : mason jar

Pours black with deep brown edges when held to light and a thick, foamy tan head.

Huge citrusy, resiny hops with a faint roasty cocoa backing.

Taste is similar to the aroma, only rated a bit lower as it just wasn't quite as bright and in your face as the aroma.

Medim body, foamy carbonation.

A great Black IPA. A bit spendy for a bomber, but I'm glad I got to try it.

22 oz bottle, no date

pours a dark brown, nice thin off-white head, good head retention. nice mix of earthy hops and a mild roast. taste is okay. light toasted malt flavor, herbal hop flavors, not sure everything mixes well. body is thin to medium, softer carbonation. good mouthfeel.

the name of this beer is pushing the straight face test. okay, just not sure it all works.

Pours a dark brown color in the tall glass with a Very nice aroma of grapefruity hops. Pleasant sudsy mouthfeel that pumps up the low-alcohol body. Every pour give a frothy foam and that same watery refreshing mouthful.

The dark roasted malt is dark and deeply flavored, but overall it feels light on the tongue. There is an acidic tang with the hoppy aromatics. Kind of an explosion of flavor on the tongue. Brewer says this is made with Alchemy, Nelson Sauvin, Amarillo, Summer, and Citra hops. All in all, this is quite a delightful lower-alcohol brew that avoids the harshness of many "session" IPAs.

The aromatics are a pleasant citrus peel note. Thoroughly drinkable. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at QFC in the University shopping center in Seattle.

Served on tap into a pint glass.

A- Poured black with white frothy head that left dense splashy lace.

S- Big pungent grapefruit, tropical, pine, and roasted malt notes.

T- Pretty pungent grapefruit and tropical fruit notes, pine, and a nice roasted malt backbone.

M- Lighter bodied, prickly carbonation, smooth, dry, and very refreshing.

O- This is the most sessionable hoppy beer I have ever had, incredible hop expression with a really nice roasted malt backbone.
